As I sit here I can hardly believe that time has passed through it's ever ticking motion. A year ago today I would have never believed it was possible for the hands of time to ever start again. Time is quite literally our mortal enemy yet has a way of bringing us such great peace. While lost in the seconds that didn't seem to tick forward, I had to hear the words that my dad was lost to me in this lifetime. There is part of you that knows that you will never recover, the world could not and can not ever be the same again. But part of you begs for the clock to start ticking ever faster because it brings the release and the healing your heart so desperately needs. I never thought a year could pass by, yet in all honesty and reality it speeds by so fast you can't believe the days ever happened. I miss him more than words can ever express but I'm so grateful for the knowledge I will see him again...and that just makes it bearable. So here's to you dad and all the memories that keep us going in your absence!
