I looked at my beautiful wedding dress and wondered if I should be doing this. Sure I loved Dave, but did I love him enough to leave my life with my Dad? Dad and I had lived alone together for years. We were best mates, shared everything, cooking, cleaning, laughing, yes mostly laughing.We stood alone together, the last two to leave. I started crying, ‘I’m going to miss you Dad’ I sobbed ‘aww honey, remember you have two homes now’ his eyes watered ‘you and Dave are welcome here anytime, I love you’ Yes I knew he loved me but things would never be the same between me and Dad.
Ten years, two children, another wedding to attend I am so happy. Dad and his wife Janet are off on a cruise, me, Dave and the kids are off to Disneyland. Dad and I still laugh, all the time!
