A New Day
“Today is the day,” I say to myself as I look at my appearance in the mirror, ensuring that the figure staring back at me has a smile. It has been years since the passing of my beloved husband in the war, and I have mourned his loss daily. It is time for me to put the dead aside and return to the living. My Earnest will always be a part of me and I will never forget our time together, but he would not wish for me to be lonely. Today, I will not just say I’m fine when people ask how I am. I will smile and give a true answer. Today, I start to live again. My faith has taught me that I am stronger than I ever believed myself capable of being. When I first lost Earnest, I thought I was lost as well. During these last years, I have mended and learned more about myself. Now I am ready to see the world around me anew and find what possibilities await me. Gaining confidence, I smile more willingly at the wide-eyed reflection peering back at me. With a firm nod and a quick check to ensure my most precious piece of jewelry was placed correctly, I turn to leave. Yes, today is the day. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and my Earnest is with me. He is not only in my memories and heart, but also in the beautiful pendant he gave me before he shipped out. He had it made especially for me with my name cast in silver. Walking out into the sunlight, it feels as though it permeates my bones, and I feel no trace of sadness. Today will be the first day of my new forever.
