jc1030 Posted September 25, 2007 Report Share Posted September 25, 2007 It's been a long time since I last posted here. I've been dealing with some majors things in my life that I haven't had the chance to post anything until now, although I lurk once in a while.The end of next month will be a year since my father died. I can't believe how quickly time has passed. Sometimes life has a way of keeping you busy that you don't really notice it at first, and then it hits you just like that once that date arrives. Having gone through almost a year, have things gotten easier? To be quite honest, not really. Anyone who tells you that you get over it in a year has either not gone through grief, or they're a freak of nature. Not a day goes by that I wish I had more time with him. The prevailing thought in my mind these days is how I wish I had one more week with him, even if I knew it was the last week to spend time with him, to do activities that we hadn't done in years, and to let him know that I loved him, something I didn't say enough when he was alive. I can only say that to him now when I visit the cemetary.They say things happen to you in life in threes. For me it was my father's death, which still hits me hard although I try to take solace in that he has found peace; unhappiness in my job, which can eventually remedied, although I wish my father were around to talk to him about this; and dealing with a move to a new place. I always thought to myself this year will be better. While it's beginning to look that way, I didn't realize that life was going to give me a kick in the backside as part of the process.Well, that's it for now. Take care everyone.Jeff Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
