My Dad…Forever in my heart ♡


12 years ago today I held your hand for the last time and promised you I would be ok. 🤝 Everyday I try to live up to that promise. This past year has been especially hard. There are many days I just don’t know how I will make it. I wonder how much can one heart survive in a lifetime. How much loss can one person bear. But you taught me strength, courage and a love for adventure. You loved every minute of life through each hardship & through the amazing times. You smiled and got up every day even though cancer was throughout your bones & body causing you unimaginable pain. You had a family to live for. And we shall never forget your strength, positivity, willfulness, and undying hope & perseverance.

Today I get up for you Dad and make the promise to not give up and to love life through the hardships and the pain. Because life is good. I am blessed with the love of a man who is a lot like you in many wonderful ways ♡, a mother who loves & fights for her kids, sisters that I adore, a Nana that loves without limits, wonderful in-laws, a bestie I can count on and many great friendships.

Today I quietly enjoy this day in your honour.

Forever your little girl, your Fairchild.

I love you, always.

  1. This is a lovely post, well done for writing it, I can feel how much of your heart is in it. I too have thought the same, how much can one heart take, when my brother was killed I honestly though my heart was simply going to stop, like I couldn’t take any more. But that didn’t happen and I’m still here and still fighting. I’m sure your dad would be so very proud of you. Sending lots of love 💜
