One anniversary that I wish it wasn't there

This week has been a rough one.  Tomorrow is the one year mark since my dad passed away.  I still remember that rushed day to get to Utah but the incredible night I was able to spend with my family in the hospital room with his body and spirit one last time.
I saw a few pictures of my parents when they were very very young that I'd never seen before and I wanted to share.  My mom looks so pretty!  My dad looks happy and like he's getting ready to get in trouble.  My brother looks a lot like him.
My dad LOVED the mountains.   I know he has been able to see a lot more mountains now then he was at the end of his life. 
This was the last time he was in Idaho Falls before we moved to Texas.  We had our set of things that he like to take the kids to do.
And the last time he took them fishing.
 Like I've said before, I know he is still holding my hand through life.  The spirit world is really not that far away.  Love you Dad!

I know those kinds of anniversaries are difficult, but they are also opportunities to reflect - and reflection can be peace and comfort too.
