I’ve finally returned from my trip. My father is finally in his resting place with my mother. I got to see my family and spend time with them. For all the siblings it was 21 years since where together in the same place.

At the time of the burial it began to rain and lasted exactly until his grave was closed. The most beautiful thing was that a beautiful and bright rainbow came out as if my parents sent us a message of love.

Here are some photos.

Courage

In four days I’m going to take my father’s ashes back home. I’ve the courage to move his urn to my living room close to my chair. His bedroom door still close. At soon I leave on Tuesday my husband will be cleaning it up. My father’s clothes would be donated to the Goodwill store. The wheelchair, walker, and his shower chair it will be in a closet until I find someone who can need it.

I’m preparing myself with courage and lots of prayers. The day is approaching and I’m taking baby steps. My two siblings in Puerto Rico are making the arrangements for his funeral service. Spending time with all my family it would be less painful.

When this is all over I hope I’m strong enough to move on. He will be always in my heart like my mother.


Here is a picture of my father’s urn also my little dog who also is next to my chair.

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt January 16th, 2018- Contemplation

As I contemplate my father’s empty bedroom, I am overwhelmed with sadness. It’s been two months since my father passed away and I can still feel his presence. There are times that I relive that day, the day I lost him. I remember when we were talking for a moment and a few minutes later he collapsed. As my father closes his eyes in the meantime, I’m screaming please open your eyes and tell me you’re fine. While I contemplate his empty bedroom, I sit in his bed waiting to hear his voice. I can’t believe it’s been two months since you passed away. I miss him too much.

Jolly

I’m done decorating the house except for my dad’s bedroom. It’s hard to be in his bedroom looking at his belonging also I can smell him. On Friday, my sibling came to the house for his monthly rosary. I can’t believe it’s been a month since he passed. I’m trying to be strong for my family, especially for my grandkids.

Last night, we took the grandkids to the Christmas lightning at the park. They have a Christmas display from different small business around the park and the drive become a fun one. The Christmas lights and the music it makes you feel right into the season. Then we ride around the town to check the decorations and we end the night with a cup of hot cocoa cover in marshmallows.

In two weeks Christmas will be here and for most of the people the holiday season will be over. I’m trying to hide my sadness and my sorrow all for the joy of my family. They deserved a happy Christmas.

I realized our life can be gone in a second for that reason lets the jolly Christmas be in our heart. Let’s enjoy every minute with our love ones. You never know it could be the last one.

My Christmas tree it’s done. I was debating if I should decorate this year or not. It’s not even be three weeks since my dad passed away and I’m not ready for celebration. My grandkids had been asking for the decoration and they want to cheer me up. Every year I decorated my home in honor of my mother. Both of my parents love Christmas especially the family gathering.

I think it’s too soon, however the spark on my grandkids eyes brings a little of happiness in my heart. I have work to do with finishing the house. My villages and nutcrackers are next on my list.

A few minutes before he has the heart attack we were talking about decorating his bedroom. Now, his room is close and I don’t know if I can grant his wish.
