reading these old blogs from when everything with my dad first happened are encouraging in a way. They remind me that I have come a long way in my grief and in dealing with the situation. Yes, it is still difficult sometimes. My guess is that it always will be to an extent. The same things that bothered me before still bother me, I feel as though I haven't found many answers. There are a lot of things that I still have not coped with, be it something with my dad, or things that happened around the same time. I ended up losing so much more than a dad this past year. I gained some pretty wonderful things too (she says as Thor curls up in her lap).
