MommyMandy l Texas Mom Blog

Another year has gone by….

EPSON001This post may not make any sense but I need to be able to jsut write and get what I am thinking and feeling out……

It’s been 14 years….. FOURTEEN YEARS now since my father  passed away, and each year I find myself thinking the same things. I wish my Dad was here. I wish he could have walked me down the isle at my wedding, I wish he could have seen his grand babies when they were born.

This year my thoughts brought me to “I wish he could have seen Samantha learn to ride a bike, and to see Sarah write her name”. How I wish he was here to see them and hold him.

I know he is here with us in spirit; I know that there has been many times in my life where I know he has been there helping me or just holding my hand.

Although it does help, and in a small way heal my heart, I still miss him terribly…. deep down I am still a little girl crying inside, just wanting one last hug from her daddy…..

  1. Kristin really looks so much like him- without the mustache, of course!

    I know you both miss him. I am so sorry for your loss.

  2. I know he’s there’s with you too. I know in my heart that he sees everything you wish him too. What a beautiful man is was! My goodness. You know,it’s hard with anything to do with your parents. I am so so fortunate to have both of my parents living at my age….I can’t say it sorry….no, I’m your mother’s age, I have children your age. But you know, my parents are elderly now & every day it hurts me to watch them suffer. They’re getting to the point they need constant care & the fact I can’t help them very much just kills me inside. It’s hard to lose a parent & it’s hard to see them age & suffer. I’m happy that they got to see their grandchildren & their great grandchildren. But I’m sad because they suffer every day. It’s just tough either way,we need to remember & love the good times & be so thankful we had a family to raise us & love us. I hope this helped you in some way, I surely meant it to.
