Today I took my dad to a VA visit. This was planned weeks ago. It isn’t favorable to reschedule or delay the VA. There are a string of appointments going on right now; each one seems contingent on the one before – although that was never really stated.
This meant that I missed a funeral of a very special man today. Today was hard. I know he would have understood me not being there. Being there or not being there, it is hard either way knowing that today was the day. I haven’t really felt like doing much else. But, life keeps moving. And we have to move with it.
Today I am thankful that traffic was light on the drive east this morning. I am thankful that the wait time was low and my dad actually went back 10 minutes before his appointment time. I am glad traffic was light on the way home today. I am hopeful that maybe I’ll get a good night’s sleep tonight, and tomorrow I’ll think of Charley’s smile and light more than I’ll think about his funeral. I miss you my friend.
