I hesitated posting this for two reasons. One, people can be just down right rude when someone opens up. Two, after coming out of SPX (which was amazing) I didn't want to start the week on a sad note. But unfortunately life isn't always great.

Yesterday was a hard day for me because of the constant reminders that my dad is not part of my life anymore. I couldn't help but think of what my family would've done to celebrate, how Allen will never know his grandfather, and how I wish certain things never happened. I plan some point to do the story of what happened, but not yet.

It makes me cling to what I have. Makes me promise to always be there for my son and husband. Despite certain circumstances, I am very blessed.

I'm not exactly the best at expressing myself when it comes to things like this, so I'm sorry if it's not very coherent.

I promise Friday's comic will be more upbeat.

I'd offer hugs, Lynn, but I think Allen and Ben are much closer. Hug them. A lot. I go through this with my grandmother (particularly on Thanksgiving) as I was closer to her than I realized. All of my grandparents are dead and I had to come to the conclusion that while I my sister had them at her wedding and they got to be a part of my niece's and nephew's lives, they will never be a part of my children's lives. If I have kids. Also, there's a very strong possibility that my dad won't be around for that (health issues), so I totally get your feelings regarding Allen never knowing his grandfather (and how you wish certain things never happened).

Hopefully it's something that can be rectified, in time (assuming you want it to be).

Thanks Amanda, you've always been a great support. I know how hard it is about the grandparents and I'm sorry they can't be there for your special moments.

I can appreciate how difficult something like this is. My mother would have been 56 this year but her life ended around a few months before her 51st birthday. I wish it stopped hurting but I try to remember the good times with her and less about her not being around anymore.

I'm sorry for your loss and you're exactly right about remembering the good times.
