Smoked Fish...

Now that the holidays are upon us the stores are coming out with all sorts of goodies... One of Mike's favorites was smoked whitefish. I would bring this tasty treat for him on all occasions... Father's Day, birthdays, Christmas.. I often even wrapped it up and gave it to him as a gift :)


I was surprised to see this at the local grocery store, as I was only able to get this rare treasure at Willy's Corner Store. My initial thought was, "Mike is never gonna believe they have it here!" That excitement was followed by a terrible feeling. A feeling of hopelessness, sadness and emptiness. It's these everyday little things that make me miss Mike so much.

I can't even think about the holidays that are approaching as they will never be the same without him; without the comment on Thanksgiving, "wonder what the poor people are having", and the questions "will you need a trailer to bring my Christmas present over?" I know Mike wouldn't want us to be sad. He loved the holidays.. family and good food... but this Thanksgiving I will miss his laughter, his smile, his big Thanksgiving Day hugs. This Christmas I will miss his cheer, his joy and his thoughtfulness. I miss Mike.
