Today will mark the second Easter that I’ve taken on as a single Dad. Holiday’s were always something that meant a great deal to me because it’s always been about family.
Even if we stayed home for the holidays, we were together as a family and to me, that’s all that mattered.
I really noticed my wife’s absence when making Easter preparations before going to bed.
It’s when I’m all alone and working on Easter stuff we used to do together, that I still feel a sense loss or absence. I’m not sure if that even makes any sense?
Having said everything above, I feel as though this is going to be a great Easter. The weather is supposed to be gorgeous and the boys will have a great time on their egg hunt. We’ll also get to see relatives that we don’t see as often as we’d like to.
As I’m laying in bed writing these words, I feel like, for the first time, I’m able to feel sad that things are what they are and yet still have a great day.. That has to be progress. That has to be moving on with my life, at least to some degree, right?
Either way, I feel like we’re going to have a great day and I’m looking forward to it…. ☺
