My dad's been moved to a different level of care in the Hospice Center...meaning it likely won't be long now. During this time, I know my friends on here will understand if I'm not around much, if I don't respond promptly to a message or a Messenger IM, or if I'm not in the mood for our usual fun banter when I AM online. Then again, that fun banter may be just what I need. I just don't know how I'll feel. Please be patient with me.

I've never lost someone this close to me before, and I really don't know 'how' to do this. This time with my dad has been very sad, but also really meaningful. He has been an amazing man and an even better dad, and my world will be a different place without him. However, as he always told me, I will continue to "have faith" and recognize that "the best way from point A to point B is not always a straight line." He taught me that life is about being joyful in all I do and creating community by being good to others. All he has ever wanted for his daughters is for us to be happy, loving and loved. I am so blessed to be his daughter.

Anyway, for those who have read this far, thank you for listening...and thank you in advance for being sweet to me as the coming weeks bring whatever they do.

Thank you, my friends.

Kisses...

I am sorry to hear that and most of us eventually have to face the specter of loss. May I suggest that you also post this as a bulletin if you haven't already in case friends don't log in for a while and the blog gets buried.

Ahh do enjoy what time you have left with him, and then, when he moves forward, take your time and grieve. We'll still be here when you need us. Hugs.. it's hard. Don't be afraid to pull up a soft friendly shoulder to blubber on if you need. k?

Like a couple of the others said, cherish what time you have left with your Dad. There is no easy answer on "how to do this". Everyone grieves differently. Just know that your friends out there will always have a shoulder for you to lean on, be there to hear you when you want to talk.

I'll keep you and your Dad in my thoughts. Take care.
