Thankful for Time

Today I am thankful for the time I had with Mark. He and I grew up together and we created an amazing son. I wish Mark had had more time with Nicholas, and I know that he watches over Nicholas now. I am thankful for the love that Mark gave me, the patience I learned while we were together, and the relationship skills I acquired in my 10 years as his wife. I am thankful for our 14 years together through the rough times and the calm ones. His body gave up the fight five years ago today, but his spirit remains strong. I am thankful for Mark.
