Topic: It's been just over a year now.
I'm sorry that I haven't been around here much the last week or so, but as the title says, it's been just over a year now that I lost my dad and Friday was the 1 year mark since his passing. And to be honest, the last week or so has been really tough for me and more so for mum. I can't even begin to explain how much I miss dad, even a year after he left us. I thought that I was doing well with dealing with everything but last Thursday onwards just brought it all back how much I miss him still. I guess that life goes on, but it still hurts sometimes.
I know that mum misses dad a ton as well, but she hasn't really talked about it and she hasn't really been talking at all lately although she seemed a bit better today. When I ask her things not related to dad she just replies with one word answers and she is very snappy. I know that its tough for mum especially as she can't get out of the house. She hasn't been outside since we got back from Blackpool in October and she can't get out now due to the snow and ice still lying on the ground here. And to top that off, I thought that her sister or nieces would have at least phoned her on Friday to see how mum is, but they didn't and I was raging at them for that, especially so considering all that she does for them. I asked mum if their not phoning upset her and she said no, buck I could tell that it did.
Theres not a day that passes that I don't still think of dad and as I said, I miss him loads each day. I love you dad and we always will.
