He was right. You're children will definitely get you through. Sounds like he was a big part of your life, and I'm sorry for your loss. xox
I am so glad you spent all that time time with him. I am sure that meant so much to him and to you and your family. Time is precious. I am so sorry for your loss. My best friend also lost her father (just 1 yr ago) and it has been so difficult for her. She spent so much time with him and was with him every step of the way. You are a wonderful daughter! It has been so recent for you. I am sure you are sad and depressed. But, your father would want you to enjoy life, your children and everything else in between. Take your time for the grieving process. Talk to a counselor if you need to. Many ((hugs)) your way.
You kids do help you get through, but so does allowing yourself to grieve. The kids need to know you are hurting but that you will get better. However I realized that the shower was my saving grace because I could go in there and bawl my eyes out and no one knew.
