I've been dreading this holiday season..its only been 5 months since you've been gone...this is the 1st thanksgiving, I spend without you. I didn't do much today, just didn't feel right...
I will say that on this day of thankfulness, I feel the most THANKFUL for being your daughter. For having the opportunity to experience a father like you. It's always been you and me against the world. You raised me on your own. You were my mother and father. When things got tough, you never sheltered me from the truth, instead you taught me how to deal with life when it hits u the hardest. You never sugar coated anything. You taught me from young how to be strong, independent, street smart, savvy and hands on. Taught me to dust myself off when I fall and to always, ALWAYS get back up and I've always did.
But when I lost you dad, I felt like for the first time in my life, I may not be able to get back up this time.... But then I remembered you and your words and knew that you wouldn't want me to stay down..Dad I try everyday for you. On this day of giving thanks, I thank you for giving me all the tools I need to navigate this life, for giving me all the wisdom you've acquired and passed on to me.
I remember you everyday Dad and I miss you like crazy. I still can't believe that I'm saying this to your picture instead of picking up my phone to call you... Happy Thanksgiving Dad I love you
May you continue resting in peace #RIPDad #IMissYou #HappyThanksgiving #ForeverDaddysGirl
