A thought occurred to me the other day and I wonder how many of us feel the same about similar stuff........ We are waiting for a new sofa to arrive and had to get rid of one of the old ones ready. As we were breaking it down for the tip it occurred to me that that would be the last sofa of mine that my Dad will ever sit on!!! I can fully imagine him sitting on the new one and testing it out but that will only ever be in my imagination and not reality. I won't ever be able to recall an actual memory of him sitting on them because he never will. In the grand scheme of things it is a really very silly thought but it hit hard and made my chest hurt. Almost feels as if he is being cleared out of our lives slowly. The only way I know he was ever real is mainly photos and memories now. These are the parts of grief I find the hardest! Can you relate?
