Just the norm ...

It is those every day moments; those normal, routine things that can catch us off-guard and send us to tears.

The smell of his pipe tobacco, the scent of his aftershave, a certain song ... anything that was simply a part of our every day lives.

And these things are different from those "major" days when we're missing him. Those "major" days, we tend to brace ourselves for ... we steel ourselves against the rage of emotion that we know is heading in our direction.

These unexpected moments blindside us with no notice whatsoever and take our breath away.
