Quote of the Day: Broken Hearts
231 days ago

Broken hearted.....that's me mostly everyday. My husband an I have been together since I was 13.... we wed when I was 18. Its been a lovely ride. Then he passed away Feb 22 2012 and my worlds been turned inside out. He's the only man I've ever been with. I don't know how to date, and I'm scared to try. Then someone made me remember, its not about my sorrow...its about giving love. So, everyday I'm able, I hug my 5 yr old grandson Jordan as tight as I can without hurting him..and he squeezes me right back. Jordan had Downs Syndrome....and he is the most caring.....loving....and delightfully understanding child I have ever seen. When I'm sad, he comes to me and takes my face in his tiny lil hands and gently kisses my forehead as if to say....its OK Grammy....you'll see pop pop again. Then he looks into my eyes like he truly knows something that I dont. And its like he's saying, I'll be here to make sure you know you're loved.
This child is like no other human being I have ever come in contact with. I thank god for him everyday...he is our lil miracle. He's had open heart surgery when he was 3 and doctors marvelled at how he didn't feel pain after and never cried. He just played in his hospital crib the day after his surgery like he was trying to make us not feel sorrow for him. So when I think of broken hearts I think of my own, then he makes me remember that he's here to make us all happy again. Merry Christmas Ellen and everyone who watches. And remember broken hearts are just stepping stones to the next wonderful thing called everlasting love. Rose Blair
