yes, i am enjoying the memories and photos of my family,
now passed, but i forgot...
the specter of two Hallmark holidays approach.
It was as some friend was talking about what they were going to do,
that is when it hit me, hard...
another day i will not be able to celebrate...
first father's day,
now mothers day.
It is not that it was any more special than any other day
but it took time after my dad passed,
a lot of time,
before i could ignore the banter around me
and celebrate his life.
It will be the same again, i now see.
It is okay,
i will be fine,
life is not permanent
and we all will celebrate again.
