A-Z blogging challenge...D

Dear Dad,

You've only been gone for a little over 4 months.... The fact that you are no longer part of this earth overwhelms me at times and I feel an emptiness that I've never known before.  

 I never dreamed that Wednesday night last summer when you left that you would never come back.  As much as I love summer,  this one will be difficult.     

Guess what???  I went to Florida.  Yea, I see why you loved it so much.  I'm no longer mad at you for wanting to be there. The sun, the warmth---I understand now. 

I love you and miss you
I know you are where you've waited years to be
Someday I'll join you 
but for now...

I promise that I will enjoy the warmth and sun for you this summer here as you enjoy
now and forever!


  1. Such a sweet, heart-felt post. I know how much you must miss your dad. I can't even imagine how it will be when mine goes. I still miss my grandparents and they've been gone YEARS. This whole grief process is quite difficult.

    1. Yea, this 'process' is one that you can never prepare for....it just kind of takes over and happens.

  2. This is a beautiful post. I wrote about losing my dad as well for my "T" post. It has been 16 years and I still feel the same things that you have written about. I'm happy that you can enjoy warm and wonderful things in remembrance of your dad. Thank you for sharing.
