It's been a year...

...since daddy died, and still not a day goes by that I don't think of him and miss him. Sometimes it doesn't seem real, and part of that might be because I moved away not long after he passed, but it might be a bit of denial on my part as well.

I know I haven't kept in touch very well; I haven't had a lot of time to blog or email, or do much of anything but work. I guess that is what I do when I don't know what else to do...I work.

Most weeks I put in 55-60 hours, some a little more, a few a little less. I walk quite a bit, dote on my cat and of course enjoy the company of my friends and loved ones here in Idaho.

I still have my Montana phone number, but I did finally step up and get a local plate for my car (at the urging of a policeman who stopped me to tell me I was traveling a wee bit too fast).

I guess now I can truly say...

Working plus blogging would be very difficult for most. Carry on.

I'm glad to see you've popped in. I think of you often and always hope you're happy. Post when you want to. One year isn't much time when grieving.

Hi Laurie - nice to see a post and see how you are doing. I think about my dad every day and he passed away in 1981; you never forget the ones you love. Try not to work too hard! Hope you read you again soon.

{{{HUGS}}} Laurie, nice to see you here. Today is three years for my Dad, and same thing, I think about him every day, sometimes with tears in my eyes, and work my butt off. Glad you do get some time to enjoy yourself.

My mother has been dead for 30 years. I still have moments when I think she is not far away and I could pick up the phone and speak to her. I think of her every day and can hear the words of wisdom she repeated until I adopted them as part of who I am. In a real sense the best of her lives on with me. I hope the memory of your father is never lost and he continues to sustain who you are.

Lordy Laurie. I am such a shlub. I didn't know you were back.

And may I add . . I'm so glad.

One more comment. I call Lynne 'Sweet Lynne' - she's always been a true friend when I've been absent from blogging or reading others blogs - Lynne is always the first one and sometimes the only one with a kind word.

PS - The loss of a beloved parent is so heart-breaking. Anniversaries are tough. Very tough.

I know the pain is less over time, but even that fact - is painful.

Sending you a hug,
Cathy
