Letters To My Dad: P is for Promises #AprilA2Z #AtoZChallenge

On January 22, 2022, my Dad died. My theme, “Letters to my Dad” is based on random thoughts about him and the aftermath of not having him around anymore.

Hey Dad,

You’re a sly one. I’ll give you that.

Before you left, you made me promise to do a list of things, all of which neatly fall under the umbrella of “self-care”.

“You always take care of everybody. I need for you to take care of yourself now” is one of the things you told me while you were at your weakest.

I know that you were worried about me and probably still are but as you can see, I’m doing relatively okay so far down here.

Don’t worry. I knew exactly what you meant and I’m not procrastinating. Though it sometimes feels like forever, it’s only been a little over four months that you’ve been gone.

I’m just giving myself some grace until I get certain things under control. I will jump right into all things self-care after the gathering we are planning for you is over.

Dad, you know that I keep my promises so don’t you ever worry about me.

Loving you always,

M xoxo
