I contemplated wheither or not to write this post, but a big part of me felt compelled to share and be honest with my readers, especially those dear friendships that I have made since starting this blog.
Last night I lost my father to Cancer.
Having lost my mother to the same illness over 10 years ago..I know that I should be better prepared, equipped, have a better understanding and acceptance of it...but I'm not ..not yet.
Its almost like another chapter to my book of life has been closed.
A part of my life sealed forever. Now...the two people who were responsible for giving me life, the two people who literally have known me all of my life..
are gone...and the pain just sits now like brocken glass in my heart...and I am grieving them both...in different ways and for very different reasons.
I know...I will be ok...and all will be well in my world again.
And so the best tribute I can pay both my parents...is to be thankful to them for bringing me into this world, all my life experiences with them both...helped shape me into the woman I am today...and for that I am truly grateful.
