In which we remember

Today would have been my father's 63rd birthday.

I suppose it will get easier not making that phone call or sending that card that I had become so accustomed to.

I just wonder when.

I know I have posted this image before, but man, it really just captures my father's spirit so clearly. To me, it is joy personified:

Happy Birthday, Dad.

Oh, I know how you feel, my mom's been gone 6 years now and it hasn't gotten easier yet. I love the photo :)

I lost my mom 7 months ago. I know the feeling of wanting to pick up the phone and call. The want to send presents and cards. The picture of your dad is great. I hope as times goes on things will get easier.

You never really get over it, you just get on with it.
Your dad looked like a man who loved life and loved to have fun.
