Happy Birthday daddy! I know it has been a long time since I left a reflection, it has been really rough for me. Not a day goes by that you aren't on my mind and in my heart. These last few years have been a roller coaster for me. I've had my ups and a lot of downs learning to live with my anxiety and PTSD, and learning to love without you here. You have always been my rock and the voice that guides me even now. It has been hard not having you here for all of not only my mile stones but Taylor's and mom's as well.
I'm a Pharmacy Technician now and work for an amazing company taking care of those in nursing facilities and hospice, and considering going back to school to become an RN. We I graduated high school and started college I quickly realized I wasn't ready to take that step yet so I dropped out and began working on myself a little at a time and before I knew it it's 11 years later and I'm ready to finally do what I had my heart set on from the beginning.
I miss you so much it hurts, some days are better than others but I do my best to power through the bad ones. When they get really bad I just think of you and all the amazing lessons you taught me and stick my chin up and push through. I make sure that I enjoy life as much as I can a laugh often, I help those I can, and try to make at least one persons day better just like you always did.
You will never be forgotten and will love in my heart and soul for the rest of my life. You are the reason I am the woman I am today. I often joke and tell mom you raised a son not a daughter but damn am I proud of that. It's kinda funny to see so much of you in me.
Guess I should wrap this up, need to help mom with dinner. I love and miss you.
