Father’s Day 2015

2014-03-19 15.57.18

 

So, it’s another Father’s Day.

This is my twentieth without Molly around.

My own father lost a son (my twin brother – name unknown to me), and a daughter, through a previous divorce.  He was not around to suffer the loss of Molly.  If he had been, I could have asked him how he dealt with such ephemeral matters.

I guess I know, at least in part, how he dealt – he drank and he overate.

Traits familiar to me.

Fortunately, I’m not an alcoholic and am dealing with my food issues.

If only I knew how to deal with the issue of loss.

Guess I am, in reality.  I’m still here.  And I have the love of my friends and family.

And that, my friends, is everything.

Go and hug your children and tell them you love them!  Because you never know.

  3. This is why I don’t believe in “closure”. Some things leave a gulf so big it can’t ever be closed. This is one of them.

    Nothing I can say can make this better. You are loved, so walk on. And the time when you and she will be reunited in joy will come. But until then, you are loved, so walk on.
