For the past several years, as Hubbell and I grew closer and closer, I'd often ask him, "Hubbell, what on Earth did I do in my life to deserve you?". It must've been something amazingly good. We'd laugh about that. But I still find myself thinking it tonight......my first night lying in my bed without him lying on the floor right next to me. This gargantuan cold & empty space on the floor. The one that is currently shattering my heart. Yeah, I did something good alright. And that made me the damned luckiest woman on the planet. Because I was Hubbell's Mom. I can already tell you that, when I'm 90 something years old and I look back on my life, I will still feel so deeply in my heart that Hubbs was a highlight. And he will still be there in his little corner of my heart keeping me warm with his sweet, gentle, loving, nature.
All you need to know is this: Hubbell was my guy. You should know that we went together like peas and carrots.
Taking care of him the last three months, as hard as it was (and it was excrutiating at times) was truly a pleasure of my life. It's one of the things I'm most proud of. I LOVED taking care of him and I can only hope that I was worthy of him.
My anchor. My soul mate. My love.
