Today I Looked in the Mirror and Saw.....

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I girl who misses her Daddy.

Today is my Dad's birthday. He would be 64 years old today. He died almost 7 years ago though. I wonder what he would have looked like at 64? I wonder how different the last 7 years would have been for me if he was still here. He was such a huge part of my life, I have never really recovered from his death. Time is not a healer in this case, it actually makes it sting a little more to be honest.

Anyway - I know we all have loss and heartache. Today I will be a little sad but then I will move on. Tomorrow is another day. I have an amazing husband who loves me and loved my Dad - so I am not alone. I will appreciate what I have and focus on positive feelings..... tomorrow.

    I can relate to this too... I wrote a similar blog on March 11th. If you want to read about my dad, you can check it out. I lost him 15 years ago at 69. I wish my kids could have known him longer... they were so young... I hope your happy memories bring you comfort...and peace...

    I can totally relate to your story. I lost my dad on his favorite holiday - Labor Day. Even though it's already been 4 years it's still hard especially around his birthday, father's day and, of course, Labor Day. But I have comfort knowing he's with our heavenly Father and someday I'll see him again.
    Hang in there!

    Sorry to hear you are having a sad day. You also have reminded me to visit my folks a little more often!! My Dad will be 83 next month and looks and feels great but I think I take that for granted sometimes so thanks for the reminder that life is precious!!

    I feel you! My dad is going to have open heart surgery this coming monday. The idea of something happening to him is truly debilitating for me which is why (even though I'm in the military and it is hard to do.) I told my superiors I have to see him through this, obviously more for myself. As my dad has told me not to come, not to worry and just be happy. So I'm flying across the U.S., tickets paid for, to be with my dad. The only thoughts that help me during this time in my life is that I know if anything were to happen to him he would only want me to be happy and to think of him fondly and not in the despair of my loss of him. Yes I know easier said than done! Those we hold most deer are the hardest to for go.
    Hang in there!
