We made it through the first anniversary of dad’s passing. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it, but there were a lot of blessings in the day. It was a great way to remember that not only do I have a great tribe, but so did Dad. So many people reached out with love to help us remember him.
We gardened (one of his passions), had a memorial ceremony for him, and went out for hamburgers. A very Dad approved day.
I continue to be filled with so much gratitude that God gave me the Dad that he did. He taught me so much and helped guide me to be a better person.
A few happiness moments today, planting the vegetable garden with Jacob, the memorial service, meeting up with old friends while out for supper, and an evening walk along the river with a friend. There are blessings everywhere.
