As some of you may know, before mom died I had started reviewing contemporary romance books over at WickedLilPixie for my friend Nat. Nat and I lost our moms within days of each other. It’s amazing how something that traumatic could bring about such a wonderful source of comfort.
I wrote about our mutual grief and things people can do or say to help, and you can read my post HERE. You might want to grab a tissue. It seems I’ve made everyone cry. Not my intention! I swear!
In the meantime, my dad came over for dinner last night and we talked about everything, as we usually do. This morning he called me and we had this conversation:
Dad: How are you doing today?
Me: I’m doing okay, I guesss.
Dad: I’m going to keep calling you every day until you answer “I’m doing GREAT!”
Best. Dad. Ever. He’s been my rock through this entire ordeal. One day I’ll tell the story about getting my mom Last Rites. LOL. Believe it or not, that’s a funny story. ESPECIALLY if you know my dad.
