Today is the first anniversary of Dad’s death. I miss him of course, and I’m not grieving today – I’m celebrating.
Thank you Dad for being there to pick Keira up from school and look after her while I work
Thank you Dad for being proud of me, and for telling me so
Thank you Dad for helping me to see it’s more important to tell it straight than to try and be liked
Thank you Dad, for being you
I don’t know about you but I tend to shy away from positive feedback, particularly receipt of it. So perhaps I’m taking the easy way out today by celebrating someone who can’t answer back. Regardless of my own hangups, I’m sure you know someone special you can acknowledge today, someone out there would love to hear from you. Be bold, celebrate a life.

That is all and enough. Handy that, huh? 🙂

Absolutely! Laughin from the belly at your reply. The best kind of laughing!
Thank you for you x (hope I got away with that)
Excellent – you sure did get away with it. I think most people could get away woth most stuff with me today 🙂 Most stuff…
I love to think that there are and have been people like him, quietly going around being magnificent and adored by their families. Thoughts with you, as the first year is a toughie. I hope you remember him with more smiles than tears these days x
Thanks Niki, I love to think you are right. I’m sure you are. I remember him with smiles and tears – they are all good 🙂
You live true to him from what you have described.
Thank you Meg.
The love a heart holds can never be taken away. Hope your treasured memories continue to keep him close to you.
Thanks Vera – your comment has a lovely poetic rhythm to it.
