I am sending my dad off to the Middle East again and there will be tears all round again. I am very close to him and seeing my father only twice a year is difficult for me. His sacrifices for the family and particularly for me, has been monumental. At the ripe age of 29, I am still very much Daddy's girl. So it will be hard to not have him around again. Especially now when I am so constantly overwhelmed. Sometimes being alone is both a blessing and a curse.
One by one my friends are getting happily married. I am going to my best friend's wedding over the weekend and I know I will embarass myself by getting all soppy and crying at the ceremony. I wish Sharon and Jim all the happiness in the world.
