It was 5 years ago today that a selfish, idiot driver took my dad from us. I still spend the bulk of the month of June crying and being irrationally emotional (just ask my boyfriend), and as I write I'm crying, of course. Man, this sucks, and he was stolen from us wayyy too soon. But, life throws us these things at times, and we do the best we can. I can honestly say I do not remember much of that summer, and I was not on any medication or alcohol, lol. It's amazing to me how the brain clouds, to protect us and shield us from harm. Such an amazing organ it is. I've always said that God does not give you more than you can handle, but He surely gave me ALL I can handle 5 years ago today.
This picture was from the trip he took to Australia with his best buddy, back in 2001. Sometimes I will catch myself saying something he used to say, or like he used to say it, and just smile. And cry, lol.
So, I dedicate this post today to all who have lost someone dear, and may the memories comfort you, and make you smile through your tears. Now, I'm off to do something fun and distracting with my boyfriend! Have a great day everyone.
