Signs

It’s never easy to say goodbye to someone you love, especially when you are not ready to let go. It’s been 2 weeks since my dad gained his angels wings and not a day goes by that I don’t think about him. It is getting easier to talk about his passing with family, friends and colleagues ,which allows me to share my feelings for the day. I received a mass card from my parish after my dad died and they were remembering my father today at mass. It was a much needed hour for myself to be a little closer to God and my dad. They said his name and sang On Eagle’s Wings, which was played at his funeral mass. I song that I love. After mass I thanked Fr. Greg for his mass offering and during our conversation we talked about death and how it’s never easy to lose someone.

Since it was so nice out when I came home, I decided to go for a walk. As I was walking, I called a friend (always multi-tasking) and we were talking about the Sox home opener (hoping it will be nice out) and I said, “maybe my dad can put in a good word to God to send us nice weather.” As I said that, a cardinal flew right in front of me. That put the biggest smile on my face. I knew my dad was with me on my walk, even though he wasn’t actually walking next to me. He will ALWAYS be in my heart and the memories of a great man will be shared with all those around me. Thanks dad for the giving me the signs today that you were with me as I continue to heal and go through the grieving process.

  1. Each of those signs and moments weave themselves into our grief and over time help to carry us through so that we do not sink. Welcome back to slicing. I’m so glad you’re here and so sad with you. Remembering the amazingness of the poppa helps me. I hope you choose to write about him this month.
