For Dad

Today is the day we used to celebrate my Dad's birthday.
I heard this song today on the radio ...it made me cry and think of him (more than usual). Dad died 3 1/2 yrs ago at 63. Almost a year after Charlotte. His funeral was the day after her first birthday/anniversary.
Over Easter when my young sons were hanging out with 'Jampa' (My Father in law). I was feeling really sad that my Dad never got to meet S & J or even know I was pregnant. A miracle in itself.
Sad beyond words that S & J will never feel the great bear hugs he gave, often, to everyone. He was a generous man my Dad . They will never know what a wonderful man he was in real life.
I miss him.
Happy Birthday in heaven Dad.
I wish ...

I'm so sorry that this has been a difficult day for you. My dad died in September, it's been a rough few months. Praying for God's grace and comfort for you now.

I know exactly how you feel! I pray my dad is up there getting some kids ready to deal with us! Hopefully he will send them on down soon!

I'm glad you have fond memories of your dad, it's amazing how some days I'll be just fine and others I'll bawl over something small. Sympathizing with you today!

I'm so sorry about your father. My mom passed away almost 3 1/2 years ago. It sucks. Thinking of you and sending you many hugs.

Trish, your Dad knows. He sees and watches over those beautiful boys I am sure. Its hard and of course you must miss him so. He was so very young too.

I loved the photo of the boys with their grandfather fishing, priceless.

What a lovely post! I'm sending lots of hugs for you. It's been 10 years in August since my Dad died (and it's a month since his birthday), and I really know just how you feel, especially about regretting that our Dad's never got to meet the boys, and be the fantastic Grandads they would have been. xxx
