A year ago on this day, my life was turned upside down. Our Lord called my best friend home. My best friend, my companion,my husband, our Father called you home. A year later, it still cuts and burns like a hot rod. Never in a million years did I ever think I would be where I am, without you. Never did I think we would go through "til death do us part" only 3 years into our marriage. Never did I think I'd go to sleep alone,without you, when I couldn't sleep,I'd put my head on your chest and like that, I'd fall right back to sleep. That is love Never did I think our every day Good morning, goodnight kisses and "I love you" would be me saying it to you in the heavens. That is love I am greatful to have been blessed to have you and all your true love. It was always sweet to call you my angel, now it's bittersweet. I used to tell you that I'm not lucky to have you in my life, I am blessed. Still I love you Still I respect you Still I admire you Still I love you, always and forever . I love you Hosana. ❤️🌹Tsholofelo MmaMatshaba Matshaba 🌹❤️
