Almost 6 Months

It604121_10204584425322980_2145604036765980917_n‘s May 24.  As far as I am aware, there is nothing special about May 24.

It has been almost half a year since my dad died.

It has been almost half a year since I had to plan another funeral.

It has been almost half a year since I had to call all of my distant family and friends to tell them, my father had joined my mother.

It has been almost half a year since I had to make the call to county dispatch for a welfare check that ended with a broken door and a call to the mortuary.

It has been almost half a year since I had to sit down with my dad’s best friend and tell him that his Ronnie was gone.

It has been almost half a year.

It doesn’t seem like it’s been just half a year.  Sometimes it seems like years.  Sometimes it seems like it was two days ago.

It has been almost half a year.

In this time I feel like I’ve done everything in the world, and then nothing at all.  Time has stood still, gone slow, or speed up at different times.

It has been almost half a year.

  1. I’m so very sorry for all you’ve been through. No child, your age, should have to bury their parent, let alone both parents. I think you are doing a wonderful job with all you have to do. I’m sure you are making your mom & dad very proud. Just remember, I’m just down the road if I can do anything.
    Hang in there girlie. ❤️
