Happy 60th <3

Dear Dad,

Happy 60th birthday. I can still hear your laugh in my head and feel your tight hugs. I still miss you as much as I have since you have left. I still pray for your peace and all of your loved one’s peace. I used to think that if I did everything right to grieve I wouldn’t feel pain anymore. I thought by going to therapy, journaling, practicing a lot of yoga, getting my yoga certification to teach, etc. would lead me to peace, but I recently and finally realized that I will always feel this pain — and it should never be discounted.

I think of you every single day. I would do anything for even one more day. I love you with my whole heart, happy birthday. ❤
