In some ways it’s hard for me to be present. In others, it’s still easy. Hun is a great father and heart-husband. He’s so dear and precious to me. Monkey Boy, Turtle Boy, and I are honoring him with these cards:
I can’t give my Dad anything from the boys. He loved that kind of thing.
So, I’m doing my best to stay where I am and honor what I have – a wonderful heart-husband and father to our children.
My Mom’s birthday was is this weekend. My siblings and I pulled together and made a surprise dinner and showered her with love and simple gifts she enjoys. It made me so happy to know that somehow we can all keep pulling together, we’re surrounding our mother, and we’re learning to live and continue to love through life despite our Dad being gone.
We also all visited Dad’s gravesite, adorned with more flowers, some pinwheels, and displayed a special doll one of my siblings had made up in his memory. We decided to snap a few photos of us all together.
Things are hard, but not. And somehow I figure that’s life anyway – hard, yet not. So I just keep going. One step at a time.
