The sun was out today. Beautiful.
The Canucks win 7-3 in game 2 of the conference final. Beautiful.
We take in the Whitecaps game during a warm Spring evening at Empire Field. Beautiful.
The constant knowledge of Chris not being here to take these experiences in. Not so beautiful.
Take the Canucks for example.
I was actually ok with them losing last year. Know why?
I didn’t want to experience that victory without Max AND Chris.
This year I want them to win the Cup more than ever…sort of.
For everything good that happens, it is only natural to want to share that with your loved one.
It’s as hard today as it was a year ago…or maybe harder.
It was a beautiful day.
It was a hard day.
But…I’ll wave my towel.
I’ll scream at the TV.
I’ll wear my jersey.
And I’ll think of Chris and Luc Bourdon cheering from their box seats on high.
THAT is beautiful.
