I miss my Dad who passed away New Years Day 2002 at age 54 of a massive stroke.  I miss Alaska. I've been in Oregon a little over 3 years now.  I miss going out with my parents, brother, and good friends to go four-wheeling.  I miss when my life made more sense.  I miss my good friends.  I miss hiking and watching the sunset.  I miss the peace of my past.  I know I'm just homesick.  And not much but, moving back would make most of it go away.  I miss sitting on the beach and watching the sunset over the inlet in the summer time not to mention the sun rising over the mountains in the east.  I miss living where it snows....Can you believe it I even miss the cold!!!!  Anywayz, I'll be quiet now......Thanks for listening!!!!

...and now these three things remain: faith, hope and love.  But, the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13.13

I know only one thing, and that thing is that I know nothing.

In the space between moments

*Hugs* Change is one of the hardest things in the world, in my opinion.  You will adjust though...I can't say how long it will take (it takes me forever to adjust), but it'll happen.  Pain from death fades with time too...that one never really goes away, but it lessens.  Good luck, keep your chin up.

Yes, change and loss are always difficult. And as much as I hate reverting to old cliche's.... "this too shall pass".... comes to mind. I'm sure that one day you will return to Alaska if that is truly your wish. All that I can say for now is try to keep your chin up. Good luck and God Bless.

OMG! I missed the aurora this winter, as I moved to Denver..."Outside" from Fairbanks last summer. But I also dearly miss the sunsets of the Channel Islands in So Cal, where I lived for so many years.
I do understand, and wish tonight to offer you a warm cyber hug, in hopes that you will know there are many who feel this way. We all try so hard to step into the next day bravely even when we feel so weak.
Peace to you, my friend.

SL...missing your father this much tells me you loved him very much.  My father passed away in 1988...guess what?  I'm not done missing him.  I had already been "away" from my own area...and had moved back but not close...however, leaving home after he "left" was not easy.  

When you carry your loved ones in your heart...and hear them talking to you as they did when you were little, advising you, guiding you...believe me, this is a good thing.  You're not crazy.  You are in a mode of deep respect...and you will come to listen for those times when one or both of your parents talk to you - usually when you least expect it!

I am going to trust that your father guided you, and loved you this, you are most fortunate!  It seems when I post a poem or prose about my mom or dad, several folks come back to me saying "I didn't have it this good."  Sometimes, I am sorry I posted something of that nature.  Other times, I realize, just how fortunate I was to have them.

There is some silver in this cloud that is hovering over you right now.  I have a feeling that you are going to break through that cloud, and see the treasures that lie beyond it....

I probably should have sent this to you in a private e-mail; however, I read this the other day and thought about it for some time....

I just want you to know...I understand.
