Birthday wishes

Today is Chris' birthday. He would have been 35 years old. He would have been back in school for a couple of weeks by now, finishing his PhD coursework this term in preparation for writing his comprehensive exams sometime next term. We would have been preparing to move into our new house, frantically purging and packing. We would have been planning our 1st wedding anniversary weekend getaway to Toronto having already made reservations weeks in advance at Canoe, North 44, and Rain. So much to look forward to…

Today is a sad day, filled with longing and unfulfilled hopes and dreams. But it is also a day to celebrate Chris, to remember how he made us laugh, how he enjoyed his friends, and how lucky we were to have been welcomed into his circle of love.

Think of him today and send him a birthday wish and go out into the world.
