Happy Father's Day

This Father’s Day was the first since Hubster’s Dad died in 2002 that I haven’t felt overwhelmed with sadness all day.

2002 was obviously tough because it was the year we lost Hubster’s Dad.

2003 was hard too…it seems the year of firsts was not as tough as the year of seconds.

2004 was touch because that was the year my Dad and Grampy died.

2005 was again difficult because it was the year of seconds with my Dad.

This year, we are all still reeling from losing Joanne, but I really tried to make today ALL about Hubster. Getting caught up in the boys giving him gifts and spending the day as a family made it a little easier. We went golfing (9 holes) and then went out for lunch. We then visited my Dad’s grave and Hubster’s Dad’s grave. I felt a pang of sadness while we were at my Dad’s grave, but it was a fleeting pang. The plan of focusing on Hubster really did help.

But, Father’s Day will never, ever be the same again…ever. I will never have another Dad to celebrate this special day with. I miss him still today, just over two years after he left us, and I know I will miss him until the day I die and hopefully, meet him again.

Happy Father’s Day Dad. I love you…always.
