Even if I tried to not make this day hard, I just don't think it would have been possible. I just miss my dad so much and this day is just such a reminder that he's not here. The family helped my mom move into her new house today. That was about as surreal as the day she moved in with me. Her house is beautiful and I know she will enjoy it. I guess it's just gonna take time to adjust. I am posting this today in honor of my dad's birthday. I know I have to move past his death, but I feel it my honor/right/duty to continue celebrating his life. The life he lived well. My friend Christi said that my dad and her Papa were enjoying birthday cake up in Heaven together. I can only imagine what kind of fabulous celebrations are going on up there. I just wish knowing that would take away my pain. Anyways, my dad would have been 59 today. So just incase God is allowing him to look down on us today or any day for that matter, I just wanted to tell him how much I love him and will always cherish him and how incredibly thankful I am that he is my daddy.

I always remember/honor my daddy's birthday, June 10. I even share it with my children. The day of his death is also a day of rememberance. Last Monday, the 23rd, was 10 years. It will always be a part of you and who you are. Don't feel that you have to apologize for it or deny it. It does get easier. I promise. God's grace is sufficient.
