Good bye Spring break, you were not restful….but I learned a lot! I am thankful that I was able to learn a bit more about my body. I grieved a bit missing my dad, wishing I had one break where I could go back and see him. I remember my Spring Break in 2008, I drove up to see my Dad. I took my boyfriend (and now husband) to say goodbye. I remember thinking when I drove off that I wouldn’t be back until I got that phone call…that life changing phone call.
You would think after almost five years I would been….healed. But I’ve realized a part of me will always grieve my Dad. The special moments he misses, I will think of him. Moments like my graduation as a doctor….the moment I might have my own baby. There will be many moments in my lifetime….where I will have to say goodbye Daddy and hello present.
Growing up is certainly not the easiest thing to do….it is painful to say goodbye and hello. Thankfully this week, I am just saying goodbye to a week where I was able to work hard and learn a lot. My next “break” will not come until after finals!
Ahh yes it is hard to say goodbye to Spring Break but I have to…because I have to say hello to class, work, and one day soon….finishing this last degree! I can hear Daddy saying…finish….and finish right! So goodbye Spring Break….Goodbye Daddy….hello present…bello just a few more weeks and the pain will have been worth it. This semester will be over! Hang in there!
But Daddy that doesn’t mean I don’t miss you! Because I so do miss you! And I love you!
