My parents had talked about taking an Alaskan cruise for their 35th wedding anniversary for YEARS. This year is their 35th anniversary and my mom still wants to go to Alaska. She doesn’t want to go by herself so I get to go with her. We set sail today, on the second anniversary of daddy’s death. We’ll remember and celebrate his life. I wish he was still here to go with mom but since he isn’t, I’ll go. We’re also looking forward to relaxing and recovering from our two week cross country drive! The Man is taking time off work to take care of Munchkin and I’m glad they’ll get some quality daddy-daughter time. I know, from experience, how important that father daughter bond is. I want my daughter to have that with her daddy as it can make a world of difference.
Time has helped heal some of the pain but I still miss my daddy everyday. I know he would love his granddaughter. I hate that she will never get to meet him. I look forward to seeing him again someday. So until then, I’ll miss him everyday. Everyday. single. day.
