It’s a good thing a picture is worth a thousand words because I’m having a hard time coming up with any on my own. My Dad lost his very long battle with cancer last week. I have so many feelings jumbled up in my heart that I wouldn’t know where to start to share them. So I will share some of my favorite pictures instead.
Speaking of words, though, some of the favorite ones I received since my father passed are of the four letter variety. What we have determined is that if people are too nice to us then we might break down crying. Even just saying ‘I’m so sorry.’ is likely to bring tears to my eyes. When I told a good friend this she immediately texted back ‘Keep it together Bitch’ with a lovely heart icon after it. That was the best medicine ever. It was so unexpected and slightly naughty that it got us laughing instead of crying. So, if you’d like to tell me you are thinking of me and that you care, feel free to hurl some thoughtful curse words my way and you will bring some much needed levity to my day. (I’m not kidding!)
Love you Dad!
