Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #406 - Wedding Anniversaries, Prostates, and Being Okay

Hi Mom, Today is your 58th wedding anniversary with Dad. It's also the third year anniversary of the day I had my prostate taken out.

But what about this date? It's always been my parents' wedding anniversary. It still is, but how do I acknowledge it?

I used to always give my parents a card and a gift. Sometimes I would have dinner with them and some times not. But the date was always celebrated, honored, shared.

And now? Just blogging? I will see my Dad tonight and give him a hug.

Seems reasonable to share the link of what I shared last year, which was mainly the words of my Dad:

Hey Mom #42 - Wedding Anniversary.

I don't care so much about my prostate surgery being remembered, though these events are now linked in time given when I am usually free of work. Three years ago I had a weekend of no work just after the KUDL tournament. Priorities. Priorities.

This is not the end of the world as I know it.

But I do feel fine.

Mom, I am okay.

I hope you are, too.

Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

I miss you so very much, Mom.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
