6 Months Gone

Today marks 6 months since my dad passed away, and it's crazy to me that it's already been that long. Some days it feels like it was just a month ago or the other week. 

Life has been an adjustment. There are times that I miss my dad like crazy. When I start a new school year, he always used to call and ask how everything was going, checking on me. I miss that.

I miss not being able to call up my dad and share exciting news when I have it. I still talk to him, but it's not the same as hearing his voice and his joy over my happinesses and the pride in his voice over my accomplishments. 

I miss hearing his stories from when he was growing up.

I miss hearing him tell me he loves me, and calling me sweetheart like he always did. 

I miss giving my dad a hug and being able to tell him that I love him. 

I miss walking in the door to my parents' house and seeing him there.

Some days I can trick myself into believing that he's still here, and it's just been a while since I've seen him. 

It's crazy that it's been 6 months. It's just not the same without him here.
I love you and miss you so much, Dad! I know you're watching over me and looking out for us, which gives me some comfort and peace, but I wish so badly that you were still here.

  1. My grandmother passed away when I was 13 and I STILL miss her to this day. Sometimes I tear up thinking about her and memories I have of her. I think it's good to constantly keep your dad on your mind--you know he would be so proud of you!

  4. I'm so sorry for your loss. It sounds like he was a great and loving dad. <3 When my grandfather passed away this summer, I found great comfort in this one quote. I even read it in his eulogy. Maybe it will bring you some comfort too.

  19. I can't imagine losing a parent and such a huge part of your life so there's no words to make the loss feel any better. Your Dad sounds like he was an amazing father and supporter of you so I hope those memories and the love he gave you will live on. That's how I feel about my grendmother who was my heart!

  20. I know how you feel, so you took so many words right out of my mouth. I'm sorry you're hurting and it seems like although the time passes so fast it's hard to imagine how they have been gone that long. My biggest comfort in all of this is knowing my Mom is my guardian angel. I can't tell you how many close calls I've had and seriously believe I've been saved by her. Sending you a big hug today!

  21. This brought tears to my eyes! I cannot believe it's been 6 months already!! Even though he isn't here physically, it seems like he makes his presence known to you in your day to day which has got to be special. I cannot imagine how it feels when you want to just hear his voice or talk to him and can't and for that I'm sorry friend! Hugs for you hun!!!

  22. I can't even imagine having that, let alone losing it. Your kids are so lucky that you have had something so amazing modeled for you so that you can emulate that for them. Your dad is a gift that will just keep on giving.
