One year later...

Some days it feels like just last week. Other days it feels like a lifetime ago.

Some days it feels like a brick smacked me in the face. Other days it feels like it's just a part of reality.

Some days it feels like it's just a part of everyone's life. Other days it feels like I'm the only person on the planet that's lost a parent.

Some days I don't even realize it happened. Other days I think about it every minute.

Today I remember every detail. Today is much harder than I thought it was going to be. Today, the weather is exactly the same as it was one year ago. Today, it is real.

"And you now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you" (John 16:22)

I have been waiting for your blog today. I love you and am here for you. I know your dad is with you today. You can take comfort in your family, your sweet boys, and your friends who love you.

We love you Jess!

Hey hon. I lost my dad too. I so wish I could sit down and hug you and talk to you. Losing my dad utterly changed my life! I can never go back to the "way it was." I just try to get though each day, week, month as best I can.

I am so sorry.
