Its one of those things that comes upon you when you dont expect it. You will be having a great day then all of a sudden something makes you think of the person you lost and it can go two ways. A joyous memory that makes you smile and be happy just happy inside. Then comes those sad moments that tear at your heart and you dont know which way its going to go most times. I not only loved my dad I adored him. And I love Christmas and so I know this one will be hard but I also know we are a STRONG family and we will go on and I know it will be different but things in life change all the time. Its how you react to the tough times not the tough times themself. So my dad will be proud watching over his family. Yes we love and miss him but we are strong and we will carry on helping each other through the difficult times.
Count your blessings as there are many! My daughter and grandsons are mine. God bless!
