” are what you wrestle with when you realize you are falling in love with the wife of a dear friend you lost. Doing life without him here on this earth is incredibly difficult- even to this day.
He wrestled through his second battle of cancer alongside his wife, Cady, for 9 months. Getting the phone call that Jordan was gone still seems surreal to me.
Cady and I get the chance to reminisce about this amazing man, and when Jordan is discussed at family gatherings I have the opportunity to not only appreciate the memories of him, but also contribute.
My view of her shifted from my friend’s wife to a woman I could have feelings for…. Scary in that I had no idea if anyone- including her- would be okay with me having those feelings.
In all honesty, I wasn’t even sure if I was okay with having these feelings.
Not to be sappy, but I experienced what can only be described as a kind of “love at first sight” that weekend. It was immediate love when I saw her with new eyes.
My Dad, as he likes to do, was giving us a tour of the Charleston area on his boat.
