People keep telling me the “first of everything will be the worst, then it’ll get easier. The first birthday, the first Christmas, the first Fathers Day... get them out of the way and it’ll be easier from there”.... - -
So my initial thought was to just try and let this (Fathers) day pass as any other Sunday, it be Monday before I knew it, head into work and carry on as normal. - -
But as I’ve grown more anxious all week as today grew closer, for both Stacey and i, I’ve realized something as i remember loved ones past before ‘that day’ in January. It doesn’t get any easier. You never really stop missing someone, you never stop wishing they were able to share a special moment, laugh with you at something funny, offer you some advice, witness a happy event with you, wax lyrical about a footie game or big boxing fight. Or just be there on the end of the phone when you needed them. - -
The second, third, fourth and every day after ...of life, is every bit as sad as that ‘first’ of something. - -
So to let this Fathers Day go by as any other and not celebrate or mention my Dad would be the biggest disrespect I could do him this ‘first’ Fathers Day without him. - -
So for you Dad, a toast...and Happy Fathers Day.
I miss you, we miss you...and always will. And we all love you very much 👊🏽💔 - -
