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.
