Crying Over Spooned Peanut Butter!

Last night while we were watching the Mets game I decided to look through my Rachael Ray magazine that came in the mail. Most of the time I just skim through it first and then read it later.
I was skimming through it when I came to this section of the magazine. Chris looked over at me and said "What is wrong?"
I showed him the picture and said it is really sad that a spoon of peanut butter made me cry.
Why did a spoon of Peanut Butter make me cry you ask?
Because a lot of nights while Dad watched TV he would eat spoonfuls of Peanut Butter.
My brother and I do the same thing sometimes. It is strange the things can trigger your memory.

Isn't that the truth. After my dad passed I was driving and this song came on the radio and I started bawling. The name of the song was something about You'll Always be my Baby. That is what my dad called me, his baby girl even though I was tapping 40 by then. :) It's okay to cry because it's a part of the grieving process. I'm sorry, I wish there was something I could say to make you feel better.

I couldn't believe it when I read this dad used to eat a spoonful of peanut butter and he would dip it into a little bowl of sugar. He and I would quite often have our "peanut butter and sugar" times together! lol Wonderful memories to cherish forever. xoxo

Laurie, there are so many things at first that will remind you of your Dad. And they will make you cry or bring a lump to your throat and a tightness to your heart. But then one day, you will see something and a smile will cross your face and a warm feeling will envelope you. In other words, you will be able to think of your Dad and not hurt. You will think of him and know he is in a better place and that he still loves you.

We only do that to relieve hiccups...

I do not think that it is sad I think it is a sweet testimony to the depth of your relationship. In a way, it ties the bond and keeps you closer now that he is gone from your daily life.

I will continue to pray for you while you grieve.
