I am still grateful.....

Saturday, June 15, 2013

For some this weekend is one of sadness. Father's Day can be hard if you have lost your DAD. I can relate.

My biological father was not a good person. I won't get into it....just take my word for it...he was not a good person. He passed away in 05. The neighbors had the police do a welfare check and they found him. He had been deceased for quite sometime. I was surprised I actually felt sad. I think because....he was gone and it was now indeed final that there was never hope that things could have been different. A fairy tale, but yet, I do like to believe in miracles.

My mother remarried when we were quite young. Butch was a wonderful person...husband.....father...
.man....human being. I can never say enough good things about him. As an adult....I now realize just how special he truly was indeed. It could not have been easy to have an instant family, but he loved us.......and we loved him.

He passed away Sept of 09 from bone cancer. It was the most devastating time period of our lives. Bone cancer has to be one of the worse diseases to have. Butch was still .......Butch. He was so cheery and happy to see anyone who called or stopped by. My heart was breaking......and yet.....he was the one that was comforting all with his infectious smile and jokes.

I still miss him to this day.

So.....this week has been sad.....His birthday was June 11th......my mother and Butch were married June 14......and tomorrow is Father's Day.

I have read many posts....blogs.......how people are depressed this weekend because of their losses. Again.....I understand.....


and yet.....I am still grateful. I am.

I cannot imagine life without Butch......my grandfathers....uncles....etc. I consider Father's Day....GENTLEMEN'S DAY.....just like Mother's Day is ...Ladies Day.

Tomorrow is a reminder that loved ones are gone....

and yet....if we never had these loved ones.....how different our lives would be!

Time ....nor life ....are always fair...but ones to still cherish all the same.......past....present...a
nd yes future.


HAPPY FATHER'S DAY BUTCH! I STILL LOVE YOU! THANK YOU FOR THE TIME WE HAD! ...and one day....the time we shall have once again.
