Three years ago.........

Three years ago I lost my father who was my best friend, my cheerleader, and my hero. I was in a fog for more than a year and struggled to move forward. Many people helped me through this journey, but many chose to hit the unfriend button. I guess they saw my mourning as a weakness but what's the sense of using social media if you can't be your real self. Was I weak? Hell yes, I was. Do I continue to have days that hurt like hell? Yes, I do. Three years later my mind still wanders from time to time, and I still have moments of sheer depression. But I also have days filled with laughter and happiness so I'll take the good with the bad.

This morning I was greeted to texts from my immediate family giving each other strength. We were always a tight knit family, but today our bond is stronger than ever. I'm thankful for each one of them. I am also thankful to those who remain present; I am a better person because of you. Your friend, Lisa


  1. So happy to have met you and Duane. Can't think of two better people. I hope you heal in time with plenty of family and friends close.

  2. We feel the same way about you Jerry!
