Blue Monday

Smiling Sally
Welcome aboard, we are joining Smiling Sally and friends at the Ark today. More great blues can be found at

Different versions of Noah's ark.  I thought it appropriate to share today as it marks the date I lost my husband, Noah, November 17, 1995. It is very hard to believe it has been 18 years.
1991
This was the year I retired.  The first year was very hard as I enjoyed working and being with people.  However, it turned out to be the best thing.  It gave us more time to share with each other and do things we enjoyed.

What a lovely way to remember your dear Noah, eighteen years and I bet it feels like yesterday? I love all your Noah's Arks that you included, especially the ceramic one.
Hugs to you from Australia on your special day of remembrance.

Hi LV, prayers for your husband in heaven. It's lovely to see a photo of the two of you! And with you wearing blue! It's always an inspiration for me to see couples growing old together. It's my fervent wish that my beau and I will share a long happy life together too, like Noah and you!

It's sad losing someone we love, it makes me think of the song, "Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain." I like your Noah's arks, the ceramics one is really fun.

Morning La Voice,

Those were the "Big Hair" days, weren't they? I remember them. LOL

Your husband must have been a treasure to have had you for his wife. I have no doubt you miss him. I realize that life must at times be hard. I'm so glad you have so many good years to remember.

Thanks for sharing your blue today.

Happy Blue Monday!

Awwww LV, I adore the photo of you and your husband. You are so beautiful and I love the BIG hair. Styles are sometimes fun to see years later. I always loved big hair. This tribute and your sweet memories touched my heart. I know losing Noah 18 years ago is a sad memory but time does have a way of healing grief and realizing the time you had together was very special.

Sending you loving thoughts today.

Memories will always be with us even when our loved ones are not. I'm guessing that you miss him as much today as you did 18 years ago.I can't even begin to think of 18 years of being alone.

A lovely tribute to your husband. Anniversary dates are always hard, I am glad you have happy memories of times you shared..

George said...

The versions of Noah's Ark are all good, but I like the photo of you and your Noah best of all. This is a wonderful post.

Betsy Adams said...

Ahhh--bless your heart. I'm sure that you still miss your Noah... My Mom lost Daddy in 1969--and she lived til 1991... That's 22 years...

Your husband looks like he was a wonderful man and hubby... He would be proud of you doing so well for these 18 years. Hope you continue living a healthy life for many more years to come.

Hugs,
Betsy

I agree with you life after retirement is hard. But one has to make best use of it.

Dearest LV,
Such a remembrance day is always hard but with so much gratitude we can look back onto fond memories shared together. Over time, the rough edges from grief mellow down for letting the happy memories surface and shine till our last day.
Lovely photo of both of you!
We never know what is around the bend of our life!
Just had major surgery on October 7 and all went well, non cancerous tumor for which I'm grateful. Aside from some bad medication and medical tape allergies, I'm fine. When my bad Hematoma has gone completely down I will be perfect. Those things take time and patience which we often lack.
Do you have any children?
Sending you a tight hug and I admire your perseverance for staying at this blog for four years already.
Mariette
