Throwback Thursday - Always in my Heart


I originally created this piece, Always in My Heart for the Non-Profit KidsKonnected which helps children who have a parent fighting cancer or who have lost a parent to cancer. This organization was a great help to my kids while I was going through my treatment. If Mom or Dad pass they will always remain in our heart and as angels watching over us.
I selected this piece to highlight for Throwback Thursday this week because today would have been my former brother-in-law Mike's 51st birthday. Even though this piece had to do with losing a parent, I think it is fitting for any loss. A piece of Mike will always be in my heart. He had a great sense of humor and he could make people laugh. I think his biggest fan was his oldest brother, my ex. He would have Lou laughing so hard he would almost be sick.
One time when Lou and I were dating and all of the brothers were sitting in the living room, Mike's back was toward me as I walked into the room. Lou and Mike really did not look that similar, but I was not paying attention and I went up behind Mike and put my arms around him and was kissing his neck from behind. The room got really quiet and I could not figure out why... until I looked up and I saw Lou sitting across from me. The flash when through my head "if Lou is sitting over there... who am I kissing?" Mike never said anything he just sat there and let me kiss him. We all got a big laugh out of that story. As I write this now I am still smiling and laughing.

Happy Birthday Mike... I miss you my fellow Gemini.
