A Little Tear...

Maybe it's the fact that another year is coming to an end, I don't know, but for the past few weeks all I have done is think about my Dad and how much I need a hug from him. :-(
Last night I found tears running down my face, for no reason, except that I was thinking of him.

In February it will be 10 years since I lost him, and it just seems like yesterday sometimes.

I'm thinking about you Dad, and love you as much now, as I always have.... x


  1. Your post brought a tear to my eye...I know how you feel Jo. I lost My beautiful Mum 3 and half yrs ago and I miss her every minute of every day...But Christmas is always the toughest.
    My thoughts are with you and New Year wishes and hugs to you & your family x

  2. It sounds like you two were very close. That melancholy feeling should be embraced, given a good cry and then released. If you hold it in then you will carry it around much longer.
    Have a nice chat with him on paper, out loud or just in your head. Fill him in on the last decade of your life. He would want to know and you need him to know.
    Have a peaceful, loving new year.

  3. I share your tears as it's now nine years since my Dad was taken away...Hugs and prayers are flitting your way x

  4. Thank you so much ladies, for your support and understanding. My love and thoughts go out to you all at this time, and wish you and your families a Happy and peaceful New Year xx

  5. Somehow that vacant space in your heart will always be there but tempered with your memories to remind you of your dad and I am sure if he could he would reach out and hug you..xx

  6. Dear Jo

    I wish I could give you a hug, so here's a bloggy hug for you.

    I know just how you feel having lost both my parents - there's always a hole in your life that you can't fill. My Mam died in October 1989 and Dad in October 1992, both were aged 68. There will be a post on my blog on Saturday as it would have been my Dad's 86th birthday then.

    Sometimes I find myself wishing they were here so I could ask them advice or some question I need answered, or wonder what they would have thought about the world today. I just so wish they were still here to share our lives and their grandchildren, if they'd still been here they would be great grandparents in March 2010.

    I wish you a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2010.

    Love and hugs to you.

  7. I know how you feel JoAnne...I also miss my father who died in 1983, before my daughters could get to know him. And they would have loved him as well, but they do have my stories. I pray for comfort for you and a wonderful New Year too!
