10 Years Already..

Today is the 10 year anniversary of my father’s death.  Wow – those 10 years went by so fast.  I still can’t believe it.  My father and I did not have the best relationship by any means.  It certainly wasn’t the kind that a little girl longs to have with her father but still, I love and miss him.

Life has a way of making you look deep inside yourself so that you realize things about yourself that were staring you right in the face all along.  A good example of this was the time, after he had passed away, that my mom and I were looking at old family pictures.  One of the pictures showed my much younger father in his military uniform (he was a Marine) and it was at that precise moment that I realized that I did in fact love my father, though for many years I swore that I didn’t.  But, I did..I do.

If only we could go back in time and start fresh – a clean slate if you will, maybe things would have been different.  Or maybe not.  Regardless, I wish there was a way to go back to this….

Dad & Me

Love you Dad!
