Missing My Dad

When I was taking this photo at Christmas time last year, I would have never believed it would be my last Christmas with him.

I had to clean out my Dad’s truck today so we could sell it. The dealership came and picked it up. That sucked. It was one of the hardest things I have done since he lost his battle with cancer 2 weeks ago. I miss him.

    i know what you are feeling.i have always been a daddy’s girl and also lost him to cancer.that was 24 years ago and the first Christmas that he was gone was the most painful.

    but am also very grateful because with his absence he left me with a lot of stories where i have learned a lot of insights that i now share when i blog.and i know in time, you will also come to realize , that he never really left and is always there every time you remember him.

      Thank you Sarah.

      I try to tell myself that he is here with us. I tell my kids that and it makes them feel better. There are days when I feel like that is not enough. Yesterday was one of those days, and today I am working on believing that.

    I am saddened to hear of your Dad’s passing. Losing a parent is not easy. I was a HUGE Daddy’s girl. When he passed away, I was broken. Much love to you.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine what it’s like and I’m sure that falls short of reality. We’ll be thinking of you!
