A dear long distance friend addressed me as Mrs. Lacativa, a title and honor that I will always cherish. Then, someone made a reference to the movie "Gladiator". That one, and "Braveheart" were two of Jimmy's favorites; movies about heroes, love, family, honor and courage, things that were so dear to him.
Fresh tears and I am left wondering what becomes of the one who is left when the better half, the best half goes away. He wanted me to be bold but being bold when no one who matters is looking feels self serving and crazy. I can do crazy, but is it good for me? Does it serve?
When he knew it was me calling he would answer the phone "This is Jim. How may I serve you?" It just occurred to me now that I could have quipped "well done" but I never did because he meant it.
