// Happy birthday, Dad! //
It’s hard to believe that you would be 62 years old! You would have loved the weather yesterday - thank you for making it a perfect day. I could feel your warmth in the air.
It was tough not celebrating with you for your birthday yesterday. It was another reminder that there will be no celebrations together. Ever. Again. I’m still trying to learn how to deal with it - on a day-to-day basis and - on holidays, celebrations, life moments. I know that you will never be by my side for some of the biggest moments in my life: to walk me down the aisle, to meet my first born, or simply sit down and eat dinner together and impart your never ending wisdom on life.
Although you aren’t physically with me, there is a part of you that I take with me in every breath I take. There is comfort in knowing that you’ll always be with me.
Love you to the moon and back!
