It' Father's Day.

It's my first Father's Day without my Dad.

I know there are many of you out there that know how I am feeling today. I was doing ok until I wished my Hubby a "Happy Father's Day." 

Then the tears came. 

They haven't let up.

Man oh man, do I miss my Dad.

We had a big, beautiful graduation party for Pickle yesterday. It was perfect. The only thing missing was my Dad. He would have loved it! The house was full of fun, food, music, and friends.  He would have been in his element.

God, I miss my Dad.  I hope you are taking good care of him, and I hope you two are playing lots of cribbage.

My Friend Lee, who's Dad is also in Heaven, had this posted today, and I thought it was perfect...

"Missing You"
I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too,
I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is my keepsake
with which I’ll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart.

Duncan sent me over after I saw the neat hat he had on in his post today. Saw this post about your dad, hope that now, towards the end of the day, you have remembered many wonderful times you shared together. He would have enjoyed the party and celebration for sure!
