Father's Day

Thursday, June 13, 2013

My heart is heavy going into this weekend. Having just lost my dad 3 months ago I just don't know what my emotions will be like on Sunday. It will be a hard year of firsts without having him here and this is the first major thing I will deal with. I will not try to be strong if I can't be, I will cry all day if I want, I will laugh if I want, but most importantly I will honor him and think of him and my memories of our time together.

It feels like such a cliche to say but if you still have your dad hug him a little tighter this weekend for those of us that don't have ours here to hug.

My dad and I on my wedding day.

    I understand. My wonderful Dad died unexpectedly on July 3, 2012, and this will be the first father's day without him. I know it will be hard; every holiday and his birthday has been hard. I hope it gets easier.

    I hear you. Special days are challenging when you've lost someone you love. You've got a great way of looking at it...to listen to your body and feel all the emotions that will come. My dad passed away 30 years ago and Father's Day is still a little melancholy and bittersweet.
