The kids and I have heard from some of you that you’d like us to keep the blog going, to post every once in awhile how we are doing. The next part of Don’s journey – his family continuing on without him, but at the same time, preserving his memory and so many things he taught us along the way.
I’m not a writer, and would never claim to be. We often joked about it. On a few occasions, Don’s 50th birthday for example, I would write a silly little rhyming poem, because I could never put into words what I wanted to say. That particular one began:
“To you Donald Rhymer,
At this special time
Your job is to write,
While my job is to rhyme”.
After all, I am a Rhymer. But not a writer. Our kids, however, seem to have inherited some of his talent. So the kids and I, with your indulgence, will continue to post on the blog every once in awhile. Maybe it will make you smile, thinking of us, and of Don. Maybe, like Don would, you’ll ask someone how they’re doing, and really listen to the answer. And hopefully it will prompt you to “focus on the good”.
