Mom and Dad's 35th Wedding Anniversary
Today August 10th, 2008 would have been my mom and dad's 35th Wedding Anniversary.
I have to admit, it's been a hard week for me. I've thought a lot about all that my dad has missed being gone for almost 3 months now. I've thought a lot about how painful today has to be for my sweet mom who has bravely and courageously been living her life alone these past months.
There is so much I want to tell Dad, and so much that I wish he could be here to experience with us. I think what hurts the most is him not seeing my kids grow up and them not knowing their grandpa as they grow up. Dad was always working toward milestones, and today would have been a big one for him. He hated to know that his cancer would ultimately leave Mom alone, and that makes a day like today especially hard.
I know the hole he has left in our hearts will heal with time, but for now I am just sad that Dad couldn't be here with Mom, just for today.
