7mths to the date since we lost Dad I can’t see how I’ve survived this long without him…already had his first Heavenly birthday, we’ve had our first Christmas without him and even the new year without him, all of which have been extremely difficult and something I never thought I’d be able to get through.
I don’t expect anything from this post, it’s just my outlet to let it all out and with it being 7mths exact to the date, I thought it to be a small milestone, well, a relatively big one as I’ve gone over half a year without Dad. Tears are forming as I’m typing this.
Today I’ve thought about some memories with Dad, like the last time I went for a carvery with him…it was before the first lockdown ever occurred, man it seems a lifetime ago. And I’ll never ever get to treat Dad to meals out or anything. I had lots I wanted to do, especially as he was coming up to retirement soon.
I know Dad’s with us, around us, in our hearts and I know he’s sending me signs every so often. I’ve got a purpose to life now, and that’s to make Dad even more proud and make my small business a success.
For those that are struggling, find something that makes you “happy” and gives you peace and things will soon to get a little easier, bit by bit.
For me, my crafting/business is my therapy and has saved me mentally. And as time has gone on I know I just need to do this for Dad
I hope everyone’s doing okay. My messages are open if anyone ever wants to talk.
