Hi everyone 

September is always busy for us, 
My lil ones 7th bday was Sep 6th, always at start of school. This year we're waiting to start online, which is supposed to start tmrw for grade 2 but no info on that yet! 

Sep 7th will always be a day bc we visited my Dad at his house for my son's bday and I got what would be the last picture of the 2 of them, and it's a beautiful one of them hugging and my dad kissing him on the side of his head. Dad still looked pretty well. Its a favourite. 

My bday was Sep 9th

Sep 26th my Dad went into the hospital with breathing trouble and crashed pretty fast over the next week, he would never come home. 

Sep 28th we had an interment for my Grandfather who had died a few months earlier (of old age) and we had been trying to get it 'done' but hadn't yet. It was my Dad who called it to be on Sep 28th, he couldn't make it being in the hospital. It was his own Dad. The day before I hugged Dad and told him we'd do Grandad proud. And I said we'd do you proud too Dad. He hugged me and said You always do sweetie. 
That ended up to be the last conversation I had with him. Dad stopped talking after that and fell into a state between sleeping and agitation. And died a week later. 

Already anticipating October 7th, the day Dad died. And Oct. 12th, Thanksgiving weekend, when we did his funeral and interment. We had 2 funerals in 3 weeks. For our 2 patriarchs. 
My son said yesterday while we're driving out of nowhere "I miss Grandad". The time is really setting in. 

Lots of memories happening now.

Grieving daughter‍ 

Thanks for sharing! September is busy and full of memories for you. 

You and your Dad's last words were beautiful. I bet you are still making him proud. 

I remember when my Dad first passed my oldest was four and she talked about him constantly, at the time I found it so difficult. Fast forward to today I love when she surprises me and talks about him. Grief changes overtime.

Wishing everyone a smooth transition back to school!

Grieving daughter‍  Yes indeed a lot of memories for you for this month, Some happy ones and some very sad ones...happy belated birthdays to you and your son. 
Trough out all that sadness you are also blessed with some wonderful and fond memories of your father and grandfather, the sadness never quite go away but it does get easier with time and as time goes by you will I hope remember more of the good memories and less of the bad ones, I know that’s the way it has been for me after loosing my dad 10 years ago then my mom 5 years ago. You will always miss them dearly specially in September but your feelings of sadness over time should change and it will I hope get better!! Wishing you and your son the best with his online learning!!
Resilience! Today is a new day...I will make the most of it!! Nicky

I was reminded this past Sunday ( sept 13th ) that it was 10 years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer.. Happy to have that in the rear view mirror and know how far I have come from those dark days.
And to celebrate, I get to have a colonsocopy on the 22nd 🙄
