I can just see John dancing around

About 7 this evening, Nathaniel pulled out my Ravens jersey and handed it to me.  I put it on and thanked him for reminding me that the game was on.  I then was disappointed to find out that it wasn’t on Channel 13- which comes in on my TV.

So, I listened to the game on 98 Rock since Channel 11 doesn’t come in on the TV.  It has been a very exciting game.  When it went into overtime I could  just picture John getting all animated and yelling at the TV screen… unless we were at the game in which case I can only guess he’d be out of his seat screaming… I’ve never been to a football game… or any sporting event (other than dragging him to horse shows) with John, so I’m only guessing.  Our buddy who took him to the games could tell me what he would have been doing.

After they win tonight, the first thing that comes to mind is John dancing around with Nathaniel after the Raven’s wins last season…

John & Nathaniel celebrating victory, January 10, 2009

If anybody hears something that sounded like thunder… it was probably John and all of the Ravens fans jumping up and down!

As the Ravens postcard magnet that I put at John’s grave says, “Wish you were here.”  I’d much rather be sharing the moment with John whether it be watching it on TV or at the stadium.  But you know,  for right now, I’m just going to be glad that the Ravens won!!!  Especially against the Steelers.

About Mary K. Smith

I was widowed in July 2009, when I lost my beloved husband, John, to melanoma. Cancer SUCKS. We have a young son who was just a year old when his father died. I live on a small farm in Maryland which is home to horses, cats, and a dog. I started this blog as a way for me to heal, a way to remember my husband, and eventually I'd like to share it with our son so he can see the love that his father had for him, the love that we had for each other, what a great person his father was, and how hard his father fought to live.
