I Feel So Bad

My good friend Jim lost his Dad recently, and I really feel so bad for him and his family.  We’re coming up on year two of my Dad’s passing in April, and while it does get somewhat easier, I still want to talk to him about things that I see and do.  Almost every day.  It just sucks.

Jim has been sending me some of the c-u-t-e-s-t baby pictures of himself, and, as with any woman, I go ga ga over them.  I wish I could show them to you, but he would kill me.  Trust me, they are so cute.  I’m waiting for him to send me more, but he’s going through quite a bit right now, so I’m not pushing for them.  Not now, anyway.

Okay, you know what, I’m going to sneak one on here for a little while.

OMG, I just want to hug that little boy in the picture, he’s soooo cute!   Don’t you love the little fishy?

I feel bad that little boy all grown up now doesn’t have a daddy. I know what it’s like.

    I still have to fight the tears down nearly every day. I’m sorry for Jim and for you and for all of us that are without a parent.

    I love the chubby little hands and I’ll bet his hair smelled like fresh air and sunshine that day.

    Me too, Lynne. I hate it when a song sets off the tears. I’m sorry for all of us missing at least one of our parents.

    Mmm, fresh air and sunshine smell – what a wonderful thought!

    It’s tough. Over time, it’s better but still teary sometimes.

    I love that little boy!

    I can’t believe your dad has been gone almost two years Pam. Wow. So sorry for Jim’s loss. It’s wonderful that he has you who fully understands.

    Mary – It is tough, and I love that little boy and I love the big man he turned into – he’s a great guy!

    Jayne – I can’t either – time goes so fast. And I still miss him. I sure do understand, and I wrote that on my sympathy card to him.
