It gets easier...

I remember writing to this site late last year when it seemed as though I could not go on. I had gone through a difficult stage in my life and I just wanted a hug from my father. I craved it. Till this day, there are times I sit and it feels as if the pain will ever subside, if there will be a day I do not go to bed without him crossing my mind. Oh blip, cue the tears. Even though it is hard, even though I will forever live with the pain of his loss, IT GETS EASIER. There are days when the pain is replaced by joy, joy that I had an amazing dad who was everything a daughter could ask for.

Joy that I know what true love feels like, because that is the love I had for my dad and vice versa.

Joy that I got to go through 19 years of my life with a man who showed me unconditional love.

Joy that because of my dad, I know what a truly loving an committed man ought to be like. (HE SET A HIGH STANDARD)

THE PAIN WILL NEVER GO AWAY, BUT IT GETS EASIER. I HAD AN AMAZING DAD AND I THANK GOD EVERYDAY FOR THE MEMORIES I GOT TO MAKE WITH MY DAD. I PRAY THAT HE HAS FOUND PEACE AND COMFORT IN THE ARMS OF THE LORD, AND I PRAY THAT ONE DAY, I AM REUNITED WITH HIM.
