I have had the most incredible year. But it hasn't been without darkness. I just returned home from a week with my dad. It's been so hard watching someone you love slowly fade. It's just another reminder of how quickly life passes. Do what you love. Love what you do. Love those who are in your life because you never know how long they will be with you.
I feel blessed. I have had so many wonderful people in my life. I cannot thank them enough. I am dealing with a lot of mixed emotions now and it is so good to know there are people I can rely on.
My dad is one of those wonderful people.
I have gone a long time without truly connecting with him. As in all families, there are issues. Mine are no exception. So now I try and make up for some of that lost time.
But I have never doubted his love.
