Back after my dads death

I can just not remember the last time I visited this site to share my thoughts. Is seems ages. I am back from a long break that came about because I lost my dad.

I have been mourning until now. Though it seems over, I am yet to get over it how ever, I believe it is time to shake it out and face the future head on.

I am believing God for a great future filled with good stories to tell, memories to share and rewards to give. You know life is full of ups and down yet each of these challenges only comes to open new opportunities for us and make us great and strong.

I may have been hurt and sad, but in the time of grief, I realized that, one could never know how strong he or she is until he has no option but to be strong. Truly, when the going gets tough, the tough gets going

Sorry to hear of your loss but glad to see you back. Remember this - that which does not destroy us makes us stronger.

I am sorry to hear that you lost your father. It is always hard to lose a parent.

Glad you decided to come back. Life carries on. Your father's not gone. He's in your heart. Lost both my parents many years ago. At the time I felt all alone in the world. But now I see them clearly and can still hear their voices.

I am sorry to hear of your loss, as it is difficult when we lose a parent, no matter what the relationship may have been.

I'm very sorry for your loss. I lost my mom nearly eight years ago, and there are still times when it's overwhelming. Nobody can "know how you feel," because every person's reaction is different, but the one advice I could give you as someone who's been down the road of losing a parent is don't try to "force" yourself into "getting over it." There's a Dad-shaped hole in your life, and only you can determine how long it takes for that wound to ease. Do know, however, that your PP friends are here for you to support you, pray for you, and send consoling wishes your way.

Africanpen,
I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. Your grief will lessen in time, but I do not believe that a person truly ever gets over the loss of a loved one. Nor should we. You will move on, but your father's spirit will always be a part of who you are.

I came as new since you have been gone, so I do not know you at all. But, my condolences on your loss, sincerely. I don't believe we ever stop grieving our great losses in life, but I hope some writing gives you some comfort and that you have other sources of comfort as well.
