I Miss You

.
Joe used to say "I missed you today" to me a lot when he got home from work. He said it so much that I actually would be like, "what do you mean, you missed me? I just saw you like, 9 hours ago". Honestly, my family will attest that I did not understand this. I wasn't trying to be mean or rude or anything, I just didn't understand why he said it so much, because I didn't think that he really could miss me after such a short time, and so often.
.
I had pretty much forgotten this phenomenon in the last couple of months. Tonight when I was driving home from the grocery store (alone), I let out a deep loud sigh, as I often do when I am alone, and out of my mouth came "I miss you". My mind went instantly to him and how much he said it to me.
.
Once again I was reminded of how lucky I am that Joe was so vocal and freely giving of his love and feelings for me. I have hundreds of I missed you todays to remember and now I don't wonder at all why he said them.
