my Dad died.

I am not sure how I expected to feel today but I am feeling blessed.
Blessed that I had a dad for 47 years of my life.
Blessed to have a loving family.
Blessed to have awesome friends.

I think I always knew I had these blessings in my life but loosing dad just made me appreciate them more.

    Big hugs, Elaine -- all those anniversaries are difficult, but I think the first likely stings the most. I'm glad you've had a good weekend, though. Thinking of you.

What a beautiful testament to your father. Everyone has their own unique way of feeling - yours is such a sign of thanks for what he was for you in all the years prior.

  HUGS! I am 41 years old and worry about losing my dad in the coming years. I don't think I will ever be ready for it when the time comes. Sorry for your loss.

    I know how you feel. I appreciated life and friends and family more after I lost my parents in the same year. Life is short so appreciate what you have and those who love you.
