Not today

Yesterday my dad lost his very hard battle with cancer. 
I know he is no longer in pain and that he can finally rest easy but it doesn't make it any easier 
Atleast not yet 
My eyes are swollen from crying and I just don't have it in me to put on a happy face and post something uplifting.
I will say that the support I have received from total strangers and people I have never met in real life has floored me. 
The blogging community is truly an amazing one and I'm so happy to be a part of it. 

I'll be back tomorrow but for today I'm just going to enjoy life, because it really is a gift. 

I love you big daddy, king of the house, always in charge Douglas Merreighn, Sir.
