A Positive Father’s Day

We went to the cemetery to visit my dad’s crypt as a family today. My mom, sister and brother and I met there (except for my angry brother).

I hate Father’s Day. Since my died, Father’s Day is the worst holiday for me. It makes me so sad. All you hear on the radio and TV is how you should buy your dad something for Father’s Day. It’s his special day and he deserves something special.

I’m constantly reminded that I don’t have a dad to buy anything for or spend tine with.

My heart aches.

On November 3 it will be the 5 year anniversary of his death.

I realized the other day, after reading thegsandwhich’s post, that I can’t carry around this negativity anymore. I have to figure out a positive way to channel my grief and make a difference. My dad was a very giving man with his time and money.

Maybe next year I will donate money to a charity in his name.

Thank you, thegsandwhich, for sharing how you remember your dad through golf and I can remember my dad through something he loved and shared with me.

I miss my dad more than anyone will ever know, but I know he wouldn’t want me to wallow in my sadness.

He would want me to make a difference in someone else’s life so that is what I will do.

Happy Father’s Day Dad. Love and miss you tons. ❤❤❤
