today marks 21 years since I last saw my dad. this day is forever painted in my memory. the fear, the panic, the flashing lights, and the hurt.
though my heart is heavy and I miss my dad so so much, I also remember the love. his love. my moms love. my brothers love. my friends and family who carried me through this life to now.
i think it's important to remember the scary and sad moments just as much as the happy. it makes you appreciate and cherish. so hug a little harder, listen a little better, and speak your ❤️
