Happy Father's Day!


I am so fortunate to have had a truly amazing dad.  He is my inspiration in so many ways and I'm so grateful for him because he taught me so much in life and has given me the strength to believe in myself and to have the confidence to do great things.  As most of you probably know, I lost my dad to cancer in 2008 but since he's been gone I've grown to realise that even though he's not present on this earth, he still watches over me. I've never known a father as charming, intelligent and great as him and I feel blessed to have a dad that I'm proud of.  I would much rather have a father who I know loves me watching over me in heaven, than have an absent father who is still alive, but doesn't care about me.  

Just because you lost someone you love, doesn't mean they're really ever gone.  Happy Father's Day, Dad.  Not a day goes by that I don't think of you.

xoxo

  1. I too lost my father to cancer in 2009 and reading that made me so emotional, but it really is true.

    I love the pictures....I can really tell the baby is you because you had exactly the same shaped face and eyes as you do now.

    Beautiful post, thank you. :)

  4. I foud it very touching to say you'd rather have a great father now in heaven than one who doesn't care but is alive, after all that pain of loss you must have been through.
    I'd agree, nothing can replace being raised by an amazing, wise and inspiring person!
    We are so lucky to have or have had this in our lives, it lasts. :]
    hugs!

  6. I dont know what to write, I just wanted you to know that I am truly sorry for your loss. I also know, by heart, that he is watching over you and that he is so very proud of you.

    I have not lost anyone as close as a parent, but I have lost my godfather. It hurt so much.
    He died in cancer too and not a day goes by that I dont think of him either.

    Anna, you are a very strong girl and you seem to have a wonderful personality.
    I believe that we all have guardian angels, your guardian angel is your dad..

    take care sweetie

    Hugs
