Earlier this evening, I closed my eyes and went back a year ago. Well, actually it will be a year ago, tomorrow. July 4, 2010. I remembered the fun my beloved Dennis and our grown up kids had setting fireworks off! He was almost done with his chemo, feeling good and it was a spectacular night! This man was a pyromaniac! And a kid in a candy store, only it was the fireworks stand. He could hardly wait to go and purchase his "loot"!

As this memory played through my mind, I felt a smile come across my lips. What a beautiful feeling, to begin to be able to remember and it not hurt!

Have a good 4th of July, dear ones. May a memory cause your lips to form a smile!
