Butterfly9 Posted August 14, 2010 Report Share Posted August 14, 2010 Hi Everyone, Today is my Dad's birthday, August 14th. Happy Birthday Dad!!! It is a very difficult day for my family and me. I never thought last year on his birthday that that would be his last birthday in the physical form. I have been crying many tears wishing it could be like old times where he would be here with us and we would have a celebration. I so yearn for those times and all the precious memories. I keep on saying, "he should be here with us and not there." Even though this is a sad day we are going to honor my Dad and have a celebration. We are making a special dinner, set the table nice, have cake, get him flowers and a birthday card. We will light a candle on the cake and sing him "Happy Birthday!!!" I know he will be there celebrating with us even if I can't see him. We had a "Celebration of Life" in honor of my Dad on July 25, 2010. We had a BBQ in my Parent's backyard. My Dad loves parties and wanted one last year but he just wasn't up to it. We made the things he always enjoyed. It was a nice day but very difficult because my Dad was not there. However, I know he was there in Spirit. He wouldn't miss his party. I sure wish I could hear his voice, laugh or see his beautiful smile again. I really miss him and think about him all the time. Life is so different without him here. It is hard to find happiness but I am trying. One really can't comprehend it until it has happened to them. I miss our conversations. We would talk about so many things. I miss so many things. Not being able to have him here to do the things we normally did, like go on day trips, walking/hiking, holidays, celebrations, talking, watching a movie, etc. He was always there for me and helped me when I needed advice. I know he is still guiding me just from a different place. Our loved ones enjoy and smile when we continue to have them in our lives even though they are in the afterlife. It brings them such love and joy to know that we are thinking about them and love them very much. They feel the same way. Their love continues to grow each day. That bond we have with them can never be broken. Sending you all hugs, love, comfort and strength. Butterfly9 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
