Well folks, I have made it back home. I have to say that this was the most difficult two weeks I have yet to endure in my 35 years. I am not sure that I can really talk about it all just yet. I am having a hard time connecting to reality, probably because it has to be redefined. I am literally dealing moment to moment and am trying to stay busy during the time in between.
I am realizing that no matter how deep the hurt goes, life must go on. School has to be done, dinner made and laundry washed. I am thanking God for my husband being home during this time. He has taken the reigns and is allowing me to just be and feel as I need to.
Every breath I take is a blessing and every second I breathe is full of thoughts of my Dad. I miss him.
It is Songkran time here in Thailand. New Years. A time celebrated for cleaning and renewal. I think I’ll share more about that on my next post. I’ll get back to writing as often as I can 🙂
Take care all, and give you’re loved ones an extra squeeze tonight!

I am so sorry for your loss. I didn’t know until I saw a post on fb. I just want to let you know, that no matter how well we all knew you personally, we all knew him. He was a wonderful man and in all honesty, one of my favorite teachers. I had him in a few years throughout junior high and high school, at Skyvue and Central. I am actually finishing up my teaching degree here after I get home, and if I can be half the teacher he was, then I will be doing great. I’ll look around and see what pics of him I can find. Need anything, please let me know. R.I.P. Mr. Krstich (he always made sure we could spell his name)!! We love you
Mary – Although we have never meet I know your Dad would want you to be happy.. He was one of my high school teachers and a good man. I agree with Jan – the post above. It will take care but there is a good part – your Dad will always be with you in so many little things as your life goes on because fo the love you had for each other.
Glad you are home. There is no time limit on grief.. Dad has been gone almost 16 years and I still think of him all the time. Still dealing with the loss of the in laws like it just happened. Time doesn’t heal but time does let you deal. That’s the best way I know how to say it. Lean on the people who can help hold you up. Reality will slowly work it’s way back into your life.. Don’t rush it.. And don’t hide from the pain. Just let it all happen. Love you..
