Here I sit on my sofa this afternoon trying to find the heart and strength to continue pushing through the heartache regarding my father's death barely one week ago. Yesterday was welcomed with open arms as it felt like a brief moment of reprieve from the grief I've been dealing with off and on. It's been difficult accepting the idea that my father's actually gone, even with the burial of his ashes today.
Although there is a small improvement in my sleep, I still wake up several times throughout each night, reaching for my phone to look for a text from my dad. He often did that, just to let me know he was thinking of me and loved me. I feel foolish afterwards, realizing how silly it is and remembering he's no longer here to comfort me in all of his little ways. In return, reminding me of the loss in my life.
I honestly didn't feel like drawing this week but felt my father would've wanted me to regardless. Therefore I decided to create a doodle of a few things that made him smile. This is a personal tribute and a declaration to say, "I will never forget you, dad. Never."
Happy SS, my friends.
