The Firsts of the Firsts Again!

Well, here we are again, starting off the first of the firsts…

I can’t remember who said this to me when Mom had passed, but it will be a year of firsts..   First Christmas, first Birthday, etc, etc….  And so True, it was a year of firsts…

Fast forward three years, and here we are again…  The First Christmas since my Dad has moved on to be with mom..

That’s assuming of course they both went to the same place, but I’m guessing they did… Up right! Smile

For the last couple of months I’ve been receiving reminders from Facebook, from their Memories App.  Good heavens, what a flow of emotions, and I wondered at first..  Is this a good thing?  Of course, YES IT IS..  It’s just a little tough at first, but it’s good.. 

Christmas Eve, was a little tough, but the GREAT news is, I have some GREAT family, and I was able to get through it, and a Wonderful Christmas morning.

And their was those Facebook Memories again, which brought a GREAT smile to my face thinking about my dad, and the day he got to spend with us three years ago..

I wonder should I document so much, be so social, post so much..  I guess some think I’m crazy, some think I’m nuts, but getting some friendly reminders, has been SO Wonderful.  Reminding me/us of the times that you spend with your wife/son/your father, your friends.

So, as we traverse through this First of the Firsts, every day makes it a little easier.. and with Gertie having so much Family, it allows me feel Family..  Feel Family sounds a little odd, but it’s not really.

Merry Christmas everyone, and a Happy New Year..
