A Short Sad Post

I've been missing my Mom and Dad today.

They won't get to see their oldest grandson walk down the aisle. In person where I can see them, see him walk down the aisle.

It hurts.

My Mom would have been so happy, she would have loved all the hooplah.

My Dad would have been so proud of J, and taking every opportunity to brag on him, even going as far as to follow someone around to continue sharing his pride.

It's normal to feel this way. And I'm not going to feel guilty about it, or try to push it aside. I'm going to delve into it and wallow. I'm going to grieve and mourn and then, when I'm done, I'll be ok. I will then be able to move on, and enjoy it all.

When I return Sunday or Monday, there will be a much happier post.

So sorry your feeling sad. Love the pics. I think LMW looks like your dad.

It is hard I am sure. And you are right, these feelings are ok. My mom died when I was little and we won't even discuss my new mom or my dad. Let's just say with Mothers and Fathers day coming I get a little angry and try to pull pity parties sometimes. Even years later!

Hugs to you...just step one foot in front of the other :)

Belinda, isn't the Lord good to give us precious memories that sometimes make us cry but even more often give us such joy and laughter? I have lost both my parents, too. I was blessed to have my mother until 7 years ago, lost my dad when I was 25. The children never knew him. I understand. Grieve now and laugh and rejoice when this time is over. Blessings, Gloria
