My heart goes out to you and yours. This year was the 10th anniversary of my father's passing...it's strange, some years are harder than others, some days I am struck with the pain out of the blue. That he never met my daughter is a hard thing. But mostly, now I can remember the good times and not think of him as ill or damaged. His laughter and smiles were like no other and sometimes I can hear or see him and smile to myself or laugh out loud.
Be kind and gentle with yourself these days and think of your favorite memories.
Much love.

I can relate to what Lola Nova said, its been over 8 years since my dads passing - and it does come up out of the blue - small things can trigger it like a song he used to sing to. I shed a tear and then think about what a wonderful dad he was and smile. Your post made me shed a tear. Make sure you get lots of loving hugs from you family.

Jay @ Finki said...

Oh miss Cathie you make me cry...I too went to see dad for the first time in quite a while and all the pain of loss, anger and loneliness come rushing back the minute I sat by his head stone to say Hi.
He never met Finn, He never traveled overseas, he never got to walk me down the isle...but I had him as part of my life for 29 years, at least I have that to remember. some people had less time then that with a dad or no dad at all, so for that I am grateful.
Big hug lovely lady, you're in my thoughts xoxoxo

Julia said...

Oh Cathie - reading that made my heart move in my chest for you. Tears stinging my eyes. I know it hurts. Believe it or not, it's good that you're feeling the pain now. Letting it come means that you may let it go. In time. And then it will be his smile that you'll see when you think of him. The funny things he used to say. The way he loved you. These will one day be your memories. But for now, its grief that you're feeling. x

Cotton Kiwi said...

I hope the image of his smile comes to you soon Cathie and dries up those tears. Big hugs. Sarah x

Sweet Cathie, what touching post. Thinking some more of you today.We must be strong for our little ones, when the evening falls we can be alone with our grief. Somehow I love these moments. Recollection, remembering, smiling, always accompanied with tears though. You will make it through this day and all the days too come, I'm sure about that. You're the kind of strong, thoughtful lady with a heart of gold.
Much love always, xxxxx

I could comment this morning, the past days it was not possible on your past 3 posts. Do know I read your daily posts for my daily dose of loveliness, sweet friend. xxxxx

~*~ saskia ~*~ said...

Just took my morning shower, thinking I assumed it's your sweet dad who passed away. thinking of you today, Cathie. xxooxx
I find myself doing or saying the things my believed one used to do and I did not like that much while he was still with me .... xxxxx

Millie said...

As time passes Cathie, memories of your dear Dad will get easier to bring to mind. The pain you feel will become a little softer & not so sharp. One day you'll find youself smiling as you think of him & remember his warm embrace with joy & not profound sadness - I promise you.
Millie ^_^

Oh Cathie the love & pain in your message is so real. It completely gave me goosebumps & tears & made me feel so helpless because I know there is nothing I can do. Thanks for sharing this with us...you are so genuine & caring and I just wish I could could call you up & hear some memories about your dad. I hope they bring you comfort on the hard days. Love!!!
