subject line: not lonely, just alone

 

Roswell, Georgia

I miss you, but I went to the early service at church and I wore the dress I bought for our anniversary that you never got to see me in.

I miss you, but I cut eight inches off my hair like you always said I shouldn’t.

I miss you, but I went out to dinner with my friends and had a good time.

I miss you, but I’m still going to that concert I bought us tickets for.

I miss you, but I’m going on vacation this week... the one you were supposed to be on, too.

I miss you, but I’m still buying a new Jeep and starting college, and I’m majoring in nursing, by the way. You said I’d be good at that. I think I will be, too.

I’m struggling hard and and I’m nowhere near over it. Oh, baby, I miss you... but I missed me more.
