It hit me last night...

My Dad's gone.

I'm 30 years old, and I don't have a Daddy anymore.

And that? PISSES ME OFF!

Never another Christmas breakfast with him.

No more meals at his favorite little diner, where he has to introduce us to everyone.

No more watching his face light up around babies, or dogs.

And? And another person that is important to us, that our children will never know.

I miss my Daddy.

Me too!!! Same thing, 30 yrs old and no father anymore! I know it's hard but i hold on to the memories of him and i think about him all the great things he did for me and how much i know he loved me and it makes me feel a little better!!!

I wish i could share my good news with him, but i can't. He'll never hold my child, never be in a family picture with him/her, and it just hurts!!!!

I think he's up there looking over me and protecting me, im sure your dad's doing the same thing!

Sitting with you, Beth, as you feel your feelings.

Breathing with you, too.

I'm so grateful to your Dad for his legacy of YOU.

Beth, I am a new reader to your blog, but I wanted to say that I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my dad this year (the end of March), and I miss him, too.

Hugs to you.

I'm so sorry. I miss my daddy too. It's been three years since I was with him in the hospital room when he took his last breath, and I still miss him so much. It completely sucks to lose your dad so young.

It's weird isn't it, how it hits you sometimes? My dad died when I was 18 and while it's a long time ago, it still hits me here and there, wondering how things would be different if he were around.

Beth, I am so very sorry for your loss. You are in the thoughts and prayers of many as you grieve. Lots of hugs.

I understand. I lost my mom last year, and I still think of her every single day. Hugs to you. This is a club that no one should ever be a member of.

I'm just catching up on blogs. This one made me cry. I don't know what to say, except that I'm hugging you in my head. I'm so sorry, hon. It's not fair.
