Wednesday is "Dark" Day.

Dark Day: a particularly rough day; Luke from Gilmore Girls had a dark day every year on the anniversary of his father's passing;

18 years ago today I was 10 years old. My sister was 7 years old. It was a particularly cold day for January in Oklahoma. We even had some snow the day before.

18 years ago today is also the day my Pappaw passed away from colon cancer. It's one of the only times I've ever seen my daddy cry. He and my Pappaw were the best of friends. (I think it's part of why I hate the winter so much. I know it definitely is why I'm not a fan of January.)

I often wonder what life would have been like had my Pappaw survived cancer. I wonder what he would have thought of Loren and Will. I wonder what he would have thought about all the cousins, my sister and I moving away for college, medical school and law school. I also wonder what he would have thought of Brandon.

There will always be good and bad memories that I will have, and I hope to someday honor his memory.

Happy Wednesday!

I feel you on this one. Praying for you especially on your dark day. PS. I might steal your label for my "dark day". Hugs.

Would loved for him to have had the chance to meet Loren and Will! I think of him every time I see an old car and still can smell what a car smelled like after he restored it!
