Born just a day apart, this weekend, we celebrated the birthdays of my niece and my mom. They were both gorgeous in their pink hanboks and my brother and my sister in law did a wonderful job of preparing all the details.

Surrounded by mostly family and a few close friends, I  couldn’t help but miss my dad. Later, in tears, I said to Morgan, “He wasn’t there. He missed it and he would’ve loved it.”

Of course, Morgan reminded me that he was  there and he actually didn’t miss a thing. It was only us that missed him.

So true.

I love you, Dad and I continue to marvel at my mom’s bravery. She’s courageously fighting to live life without you and there are days when that undoubtedly gets hard.

But you would be so very proud of her.
