The Firsts

Posted 06-21-2011 at 10:30 PM by Sweet-Tee
Lately I have been thinking of the expression that the firsts are always the worst.. The first birthday after someone dies, the first Christmas, the first Fathers Day. I'm hating these firsts. In my sane times I know that death is part of life and it is natural. In my sane times I say yes, he was older, he lived a full life, this is what he wanted.... but it is the other times I am having a difficult time with. When I find a card signed by him and realize that will be the last signed card by him to his grandkids, when I think about fathers day and how he is not there, that dreaded "empty" chair. Maybe it is the unresolved issues I feel I have, the things that I never said, could not bring myself to say. I'm sure he knew... I'm sure he knows now... So what to do... what to do... Nothing to really do. Can't bring someone back, have to move forward. So I will put the first birthday behind me, the first fathers day, and try not to think about all the firsts that I will still have to endure, still have to go through, which will be even more difficult than the firsts I have already gone through.... I'm still hating these firsts....

It's tough, so tough. No doubt about it. What you're feeling is "normal" and that's a good thing. It will get easier with time but you have to mourn in your own way, in your own time. You'll do it! You're stronger than you realize!!!

I could not have written a more exact message about me, and my Dad is still alive! I dread the day and it hasn't even happened

I lost my mother 8 years ago, I was only 24, I still from time to time think about those firsts. Most recently, she never got to meet my kids, see them take their first steps, see their first signs (my mother was deaf). If you need a shoulder, I'd gladly lend you mine for while.

I'm very, very sorry for your loss... I did not know your father, nor am I a father yet, but I can assure you that all the acts of Love you wish you could now profess to him are the same ones he would have liked to profess to you.

I hope you heal soon...

I know its been a while... and all the firsts, or most have passed, and even some seconds. Even after many years you will always miss him. But it does get easier.... hugs

I just commemorated the 9th year of my own father's passing.. your reminder of the 'first's brought a lump to my throat. It's still so hard sometimes, he comes back in my dreams and I feel so sad again when I wake.

I am sorry for your loss Sweet-Tee, all those years ago. I hope you remember him fondly and his memory brings a smile to your face.

Totally understand what you have been through. I lost my dad 3 years ago. Being around his things at my moms place or seeing his handiwork and wondering what he would say to me brings a tear without fail. And like Alpheius said, he even appears in dreams. Hopefully, its gotten easier for you. Thanks for sharing your experiences with us.
