|Dad and Mama, Christmas 2014|
At the top of the list: my sweet dad, who was in precarious health for a few years, reached a crisis point at the end of October, and he passed away on November 21. It's hard to even type that. It's almost impossible to even think it, much less "accept." And it's been almost four months.
My sister, who blogs regularly at Ministry and Motherhood, wrote an amazing (a word I rarely use because it is so patently overused, but in this case it's a good fit) post while Dad was in hospice: Thankful, Tired, and Traumatized. I point you there because it's perfect, written far better than I have words for right now.
I've composed posts in my head, but I can't seem to get them out yet. One day. For now, I re-read Alicia's post, look at the photos, and grieve.
