A Day of Sorrow or a Day to Celebrate?

Finding it hard to get out of bed this morning, my heart is full of sadness and pain.  Today is my Dads first birthday since his passing.  It’s hard to understand how life just goes on without it him.   We never used to do anything super huge for his birthday, just some bumpy cake and ice cream…but not this year.  This year we are doing it up right.  I am going to try my hardest not to be sad because today I am going to celebrate his life.  I’m going to celebrate just how wonderful he really was. I miss you, Dad, so very much.

 “You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he lived,
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind be empty and
turn your back,
Or you can do what he would want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”

Today is going to be harder than I thought…
