So it has been a little over a week since Father's Day and our first one withour my dad. My sister and I were discussing how it feel a bit odd without him. Perhaps the day was a day of happiness with a touch of sorrow and understanding too.
My family spent the day together - we swam:
What I most enjoyed was seeing a "dad" document that my son put together. I love how Noah sees his dad as larger than life:
But I made a layout of some happy times with my dad last year when he was done with his chemo and feeling pretty good:
Lots of little details (and hidden journaling). I made this layout late one night so I grabbed whatever supplies I could find on my desk to do so:
And we know it gets easier each day and each month and each year. And so we wait and we celebrate our time with our families together.
There are things which will happen in my week which makes me think of my dad and 95% of the time in a happy way so that brings a smile to my face. And my dad being one of the jolliest men around, would be happy to know I am smiling too.
