I believe in happy endings. I believe in the power of love and that this power can and does last beyond the grave. There is a spirit that lingers after a loved one has passed that we feel in our hearts. It may be a brush of air or a ray of sunlight on a shadowed path. But it is there and it gives comfort.
My husband was recently in a terrible accident. And I thought as I stood beside his hospital bed, holding our 10 month old daughter in my arms, while our other children huddled near me with fear beginning to edge across their faces, that the spirit of his life would be all we would have left. That we would remember his smile in flashes of memories. That his arms holding us would be the fleeting brush of a breeze. That his love for me would shine through the darkness to light my path. And I was afraid.
Soon, though, he opened his eyes. When he smiled up at us, our happy ending began.
