Veterans Day 2016

Today is Veterans Day.

Let us not forget the reason we celebrate today.

Let us remember all of the soldiers past and present who fought to give us our freedom.

The ones who gave their lives and the families they left behind.

The ones on the front lines now who are missing their spouses and families and in return they are missing them.

Let us remember the past wars so that we may not repeat them.

Let us just remember what this day means for all of us.

And if you see a soldier today, thank them, hug them, shake their hand, because they deserve so much more

365 Days

It's been 365 days since I last heard your voice.

One year later my heart still breaks into a million pieces when think of you or see a picture of you. 

Grief is a strange thing. There are days when it feels bearable. Almost like I can make it through the day and think of you and smile. Other days it's just right there below the surface bubbling and waiting to spill over. Waiting to drown me in it's sorrow.  Oh how I long for the day when I can remember you and not dissolve into tears.  

I love you Daddy and I am impatiently waiting for the day I can run into your arms and hug your neck. I just might never let go.
