One year ago today my dad's life on earth came to an end and he started his new life in heaven.
This has been a rough year. In ways it has gotten easier as the months went on, in that I do not cry at the drop of a hat every hour of everyday but it is harder in that as the boys grow it really hurts me that they do not have my dad around as that strong Godly influence in their lives.
Birthdays have been the hardest. Whether it is mine knowing that I wasn't getting that phone call that day or it is my kids birthday knowing how much they have grown since dad has gone.
I had this whole post planned where I would tell you funny stories of my dad and quite frankly there are a lot. But I can't think of a one right now. I can't even concentrate on anything.
So instead I want to take the time to thank you all for all the sweet comments, encouragement, and prayers over this year. They really have meant a lot to me.
Thank you all so much!
I did want to share with you one story that a friend of mine emailed me after dad's celebration service.
