Dad’s birthday

It’s another in the year of “firsts without Dad”—his birthday. First Thanksgiving, then Remembrance Day, then his birthday, the very next day. Tessa, Luka and I went grocery shopping and looked for a gingerbread cake, one he loved. We got the closest thing there was—a honey cake. Tessa bought me a present for Dad’s birthday: A round medallion with crystals on it, and four little single crystal charms with it. She said it could represent Dad and his four kids, or Dad, me and the three of them—Tessa, Graydon and Luka.

My Tessa is an old soul, and loves me so much. Her heart is so, so big. I’m afraid I’ve been taking up a lot of room in that heart since I got sick.
