I’ve been gone a few days, taking a little “me time” after the death of my Father a week ago. Today’s Daily Sunshine might not seem cheery, but we all have things we are grieving and grief is a part of life. The sun still shines and the flowers bloom. We go on.
I had a complicated relationship with my father that was never resolved. His passing brought out emotions and thoughts I never would have imagined. I celebrate the wonderful things he did to support my younger siblings. For myself, I’ve chosen to remember him at the beginning of our relationship, when I was still an only child before the other four arrived, and I was the apple of his eye. It was a gentle and loving time.
Rest easy, Dad. May you find the peace now that you didn’t have in this lifetime.
Catherine, tomorrow’s post will be a little sunnier. Thanks for checking up on me.
