Father In Love

Tuesday, January 26, 2021

I had a meltdown over the weekend because my party planning and birthday festivities will not be the usual over the top celebrations that I have beginning the last week of January through the first week of March.

Today it doesn't matter. My father in love has lost his battle with COVID. I met my husband when I was 17. I have been married 20 years and although we are in the rockiest parts of our marriage, I married into the best family ever. His parents are truly the kindest and most generous people in the world. They have raised countless foster children and a grown ones have lived with them long after they are too old to be in the "system." My father in love treated me as one of his own.

My heart is broken for my children because this is the 1st grandparent they have ever loss. We are fortunate to live very close to both sets of parents. Before COVID, my kids would spend weekends with them. We used to live within walking distance. I am so very grateful for our time together as a family. I am so thankful for all of our vacations together. I am happy that we all are as close as a family my mother in love is surrounded and will want for nothing.

In my heart I know he is in a better place but, I sure wish I could hug his neck one last time. That would be the best birthday present ever, right?

Go hug somebody and tell them you love them. Eat healthy so you can fight stupid viruses better. emoticon
