Waves

This was sent to me by a pal. My dad died in June, so this will be the first Christmas without him.

3. The first round of holidays are hard.

But it is true that with time the waves are not as high.

I am sorry for your loss. Dads are hard to loose.

4. My dear babylonsister...

My heart goes out to you as you navigate your loss of your beloved Dad.

I'm so glad your friend sent you this. I've read it before and it always helps. When I lost my dear friend WCGreen, this was one of the pieces that really helped keep me afloat.

I hope it will help you too.

5. wise and wonderful words

so sorry for your loss

my partner and I lost his son this year and the words are meaningful

Joe Biden's words as well to grieving parents...

“There will come a day, I promise you and your parents, as well, when the thought of your son or daughter or your husband or wife brings a smile to your lips before it brings a tear to your eye. It will happen. My prayer for you is that day will come sooner or later.. But the only thing I have more experience than you in is this: I’m telling you it will come.”

7. Go for a long walk and thank him for everything he did for you and your family.

That is all there is really left to do.
Peace.

8. I send you my heartfelt hugs babylonsister

Those words are exactly what happens. I lost my only son a few years ago. My grief is as precious to me as are all the best memories and love I have for him. When the waves come I welcome them too.

10. Sorry for your loss.

Holidays can be difficult.

The letter you shared from a friend, from the "old Guy" is awesome because it so real and so true, thank you, for posting. That person is so right. Sometimes when I read something about the goodness of people, magical animals what ever it is I'll think of my sister and get an urge to give her a call and share those stories. My sister passed in June of 2011.

In some way I know she is still a special person, who was a big part of my life for many years and who still is, the love never dies.

11. Beautiful. Thanks so much for posting. I share your sorry about your loss. I lost my Mom ...

earlier (July 2019) this year. This poem hits me the right way.

12. Please accept my condolences on the loss of your father.

I remember the pain of losing my father. I also remember missing him at particular moments. The first time that I had a cold after he was gone I was awash in misery because I couldn't go to him for a bowl aglio et olio to clear up my sinuses and warm my bones. My tears made the congestion even worse.

Now, when I make that dish, I smile about how mine isn't as good as his. I laugh about how he was a good cook but a lousy teacher. And I give thanks that he is no longer being ravaged by Alzheimer's.

You'll find your way.

14. This thread was a wonderful read. Comforting as a warm fire on a cold night.

Much love and consolation to you, babylonsister. And the same to anyone who mourns during the holidays.

You do not grieve alone.
