Today is Winter Solstice for most folks. For me and my family, it has also always been Dad’s birthday. This is the first December 21 I’ll experience without my Dad.
The pain of his death is still fresh with my family. But today, I’ll just try to be kind, quiet and helpful – like he always was. I’ll be a smart ass. I’ll be determined. And I’ll probably sit on the couch and read a book, too.
Love you Dad. And miss you much.
