Gone, But Not Forgotten

happy birthday, cakeThough some leave before we can say goodbye, tender memories of that life together can still shed tears.

Fear says we’ll forget with time, but as the calendar pages flip, now nearly 20 years later, my soul still lights up on October 17. It’s the birthday of someone special to my soul, a partner in crime for 14 years.

Special people leave the earth with their footprints stamped on our soul. We can choose to celebrate the gift of their life or sulk in the sadness that they are gone.

If you look closely, you’ll catch a glimpse of my brother’s gratitude for life, forever stained on the hearts he met. His charm still echoes in our ears.

Captivated by his character and blessed to be by his side, not a year goes by that I don’t celebrate this life we were given.

It’s only 10 a.m. and the cake has already been cut. I’ve got a ticket to the movies with dinner and dessert at a favorite restaurant. It’s a sweet day I’ve got mapped out in his memory. Cheers, Michael Keehn! And Happy Birthday, Brother. ‪ #‎brotherbyblood‬ ‪#‎brotherbyfaith‬ ‪#‎butfirstcake‬
