Yesterday in the car, this song called “holes in the floor of heaven” came on. If you haven’t heard it before, it is so incredibly sad!! So I’m just driving along, singing along with this ridiculously sad song and than it hit me. like a ton of flippin bricks. my dad’s best friend of 20 years, passed away suddenly about 5 years ago. Our families were so close, all the kids grew up together, him & my dad worked together so they saw each other everyday, talked everyday, bullsh!tted everyday, for 20 years. So yesterday, it truly hit me that he wouldn’t be there on my wedding day. I had thought about it over the past year of being engaged and it upset me, but yesterday I had the biggest meltdown, ever. He was like a second dad to me and it breaks my heart knowing he won’t be there.
Has anybody else experienced this sudden “hit” of reality/emotion? How did you handle it? Any advice? Thanks in advance bees!
