You are missed, Daddy.

First, let me say I'm sorry for this post, but I'm taking the blog from Wesley today.

 With this blog I try very much to keep it fun and carefree. Today though I am having problems getting into that particular mindset.

So, instead of trying to force myself into it, I'm just going to let it go. 

And I apologize for that.

Two months ago, on Friday March 13th my father passed away.

Him being so sick these past months and that event are the reasons that Wesley and I went away from Blogville for so long in October and at the beginning of this year. 

I like to tell myself that I'm at peace with his passing.

He was so sick, and always hurting and it was hurting myself and my sister to watch him as he was...because there was nothing we could do to help him. 

All we could do was sit back and worry, and he just loved to tell me 'Amanda, stop worrying so much!'

It was something he told me at least once a day as I worried over him for so many reasons. 

Now I don't have to worry about him anymore, and he's not sick or in pain anymore.

Those thoughts, especially that last one, comfort me.

But I still cry, because I miss my Daddy. 

Very much.

And I am so sorry for being sad on this blog, it's not something I want to make a habit of or ever wanted to do, ever. 

But today I just couldn't do anything else. 

Love and miss you, Daddy.

Tomorrow, I promise, to be back to the regularly scheduled silliness and fun.

  10. I'm so sorry for your loss. When my father passed away in late January I ended up doing a series of blog posts dedicated to him. My father passed very quickly after a brief stay in the hospital and it was a bit shocking for our family. I wanted to share what was happening with my Blogville friends since I knew they would be supportive and want to know what was happening. So never apologize for sharing your sad or happy times with us.

    Hugs to you.
