Fathers Day…it aint what it used to be…. (warning this is not all warm and fuzzy)

I try hard to keep this as an upbeat blog (when I do put something on here) but I am angry and sad. I try to be happy for all the people who get to celebrate fathers day with their dads, I really really do… however there is a part of me that wants to just say HAPPY FU. I miss my dad, I miss him more today than yesterday, I hate that he is no longer here on this earth with me… I hate that my last memory of this amazing man was him writhing in pain. a tiny wisp of the man I saw just 3 weeks earlier. I hate that the last words I heard my daddy say were I just want to die….. I hate that I wasn’t there to hold his hand as he took his last breath and that I was not there for him much his last year. I miss his voice, his silly smile, his smell, I just miss him…… I am so envious of people who have pictures of themselves with their dads, or pictures of their dads period. I have very few and none of us together. I keep trying to erase the last visual of him in my mind….looking at the few pictures I do have help…

dad hansomeHe was such a handsome young man. I think this must be a lodge picture. He was dedicated to being a Mason and Rainbow father to many

Happy Fathers Day daddy, I know you are up in heaven looking down on all of us…. I miss you, I love you, and I know one day we will get to celebrate another fathers day together.

To my friends, I hope you all have wonderful days with our dads, cherish them, love them and give them all a hug from me.
