One Year Later [Through My Lens Nr. 225]

It has been one year since my dad passed away, and it's hard to describe how I feel one year later. I wanted to write this post and say something meaningful, maybe even helpful to others going through a similar loss, but somehow it's still too early to be wise about anything. There are moments where I remember my dad fondly, and we tell fun stories about him, then there are others where I'm still not fully aware that he is gone forever. It's a strange thing about loss, everyone experiences it differently, though there are many similarities. But still, looking back one year, I actually can't believe it has been one year. Life goes on, stuff happens, and yet in the back of my mind there is this looming thing I can't quite wrap my head around.

Since you  guys have been following my personal stories for so long, and have come to know my family, friends and myself I wanted to write this post. Thank you for your comments and well wishes. It truly means a lot. I have included some shots of my dad. The first is from his visit to Syria way back in 2007, before the war there, and the later images are from our last family travel to Vienna back in 2017.

Now I want to see what you have been up to. Link down below and share with the rest of us!

  3. I've enjoyed "meeting" you and your family and friends. I know your decreased activity on the blog is mostly likely due to the increased demands of your office. I hope this new year continues well for you.

    1. Yes you are right. Though I do have a lot of material build up, since I was traveling, so there will be more. It’s my new years resolution to get back to blogging!

  7. A very thoughtful post and tribute to your dad. Sending you positive thoughts.

  8. Good to remember your Dad. Nice photos.

  9. What great pictures of your dad... happy memories....I am so sorry for your is hard to lose a parent.♥️

  10. My dad has been gone for 30 years. It is still hard but I have so many good memories to get me through. Not a day goes by that I don't remember something wonderful about growing up with this wonderful man. I am sure it will be the same for you. - Margy

  11. What a lovely tribute to your dad. You made me think about my mom and dad. I did so much traveling with them both and I have very wonderful memories from those trips. After my mother passed away, I took my dad to London for his first ever travel to Europe. That was a wonderful experience that I'll never forget.

  12. Do you understand there's a 12 word sentence you can communicate to your partner... that will induce deep feelings of love and impulsive attractiveness for you buried inside his chest?

    That's because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's instinct to love, treasure and guard you with all his heart...

    12 Words That Fuel A Man's Desire Impulse

    This instinct is so built-in to a man's genetics that it will drive him to try harder than before to take care of you.

    Matter-of-fact, triggering this all-powerful instinct is so mandatory to achieving the best ever relationship with your man that the second you send your man a "Secret Signal"...

    ...You will soon notice him expose his soul and heart to you in a way he's never expressed before and he'll recognize you as the one and only woman in the galaxy who has ever truly understood him.
