On My Mind ...

is my dear Dad who left us 21 weeks ago today (4th March)
Dad meets his new Great Grandson Jonah aged 8 weeks for the first time
Of course I'm not just thinking about him today, everyday I think of him.

So I was shocked when a couple of weeks ago, I went to phone him to ask him a question, completely forgetting he wasn't here anymore. 

I am thinking about all the wonderful times, all the holidays we had growing up, all the funny stories he used to tell.

I am thinking about him as we approach his birthday next week

I am thinking a part of me went with him when he died

I am thinking life can be so unfair, and it will never be the same again.

Love you always, Dad xoxo

Visiting through Down to Earth...
I understand how you feel, and I am thinking of you from the other side of the world - your post could have been written by me 16 years ago. My dad died, aged 55, when I was pregnant with KL.I had never experienced grief like it,and I was angry that he had died too young. Life hasn't been the same, but it has been mostly good despite the fact that I still miss him and sometimes shed tears - I smelt his aftershave this week and it made me cry.I don't think you ever get over it, but you do learn to live with it and for a long, long time I have been able to be grateful that he was my Dad for 29 years,that he taught me so much, and that he lives on in me and my girls.
Thinking of you. x
