I’m slowing going through each of the “first” without my dad. Tomorrow will be my first birthday without him. Dad was always the first one to wish me “happy birthday.” I received an early happy birthday message from one of dad’s coworkers today. He said he knows my birthday is tomorrow, but there’s nothing wrong with being first.
I completely broke down.
I want my dad to continue to be the first one to wish me happy birthday. I know that’s not possible. But it still hurts that he will never be the first message on my birthday again.
