365 Days Without My Dad

Everything I See- George Strait

Last year on Sunday, September 27th my Dad passed away. We knew it was coming as he was rejecting his lungs from a transplant.  Expected or not, any loss breaks you to the core. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him, miss his words/insight or wish things were different. It feels like yesterday and a lifetime ago at the same time, but no matter how much time passes the raw feelings and memories remain the same.

I was driving to my house to collect some things the day after the loss and this song came on the radio- The timing could not have been more bizarre. The words are incredibly fitting and touching for me. 

"To think a man who led such a simple life could leave behind so much,
It's just a lot of little things but they mean the world to me.
Everywhere I look there's one more memory,
There's a little bit of you in everything I see."

Would love to hear from you!
