I am feeling so much better today

Monday, February 25, 2013

I had such a down day yesterday but I really did try to turn it around. Hubby went to see his son in Louisville and they had a few quiet hrs, walked across the new pedestrian bridge over the Ohio river, said it was nice.

I cleaned while he was gone and cried off and on about Dad, guess I should not fight it and just let the tears come. I met my hubs in Louisville for a movie in the afternoon, we saw Lincoln. Wow, it was so moving and not the best thing to lift spirits but I was in a sad contemplative mood anyway. The scene where he was laying in his bed and they pronounced that he "was no more" at the end looked eerily like my Dad laying in his bed when he died. Dad was tall and wiry, no beard but had crazy hair like the figure in the movie. Funny how what we are thinking about comes out in whatever we are experiencing.

So today I am getting the animals in order, feeding chickens and dogs and cats, cleaning a bit, fixing my wild head of hair then traveling in to Louisville for our class this evening. We are starting a new series on sexual abuse for our foster/adoptive training. I like the classes, they've been really informative.

You all have as good of a day as you can.

    I so know what you are talking about. My Dad passed away 13 years in May. There are dates or events that trigger me missing him so much. I hope that you have a better week!

    Thank you for your kind words Barbanna. He died 12 yrs ago yesterday. Every yr the day comes and it is still very hard. I have a lot of really great memories though and call on them a lot to ease my missing him.

    I assume you lost your father. I am very sorry for this loss and understand the pain. What you are feeling is very normal and journaling is very good for coping. I hope the hurt will go away and you will learn to look back at all the good times. I have lost both of my parents and a brother last year so I feel your pain.

Best regards,
