I Miss Him, He Is Missing Things

Sunday Mornin' Coming Down - A post about my Dad each Sunday, named after a song that he loved.

Lately I have been really aware of all the things that my Dad has been missing (you know, by being dead.) As usual, strange things remind me of him. Here are the things he is missing out on this summer:

- So many superhero and action movies
- Sleeping in our cool cabinet bed
- Visits with the ever growing Minns family
- Lots of free events and festivals in Toronto
- Nautical style clothes becoming cheap and being everywhere
- Helping with our many outdoor house projects
- The new Game of Thrones season
- A lot of sailing

This doesn't even get into the extremely upsetting parts, like my wedding last year, or, meeting and playing with his grandchildren. There is always so much I want to share with him. I miss his happiness and excitement (something I am planning on writing about later.)

Oh my goodness, the list of what he has missed in the 3 and a half years he's been gone, is endless! He would certainly have enjoyed helping with your house and the grandkids would have both thrilled him and frustrated him, he always enjoyed Toronto and although not a "city guy" would have loved the opportunities to visit and be part of the vibrancy and action.

He would have loved the cool cabinet bed! It is sad to think about all of the things they miss (both good and bad). I am not really enjoying our cottage at all this year. I am hoping the enjoyment comes back in future years. So many reminders there and it just doesn't feel right being there without my dad.
