it's been a month


time goes quickly. i learned that last month when my father died. i'm aware of it again as a month has already passed. it hasn't exactly gotten any easier, but i'm sure it will with more time. last night i went to a fireside given by ed smart, father of the famous elizabeth smart. he spoke a lot about eternal families. the closing song was the same one we as a family sang at dad's funeral - "families can be together forever." it was a good fireside. i'm impressed with the smart family's resiliency.

anyway, my good brother sent a photo of dad's last ride in his family email last night. i like it. i choose to share it as a little anniversary post, i guess. i like that my youngest sisters were the drivers - they had the most experience driving dad's truck. now my mom is selling it - we're all okay with that - it was dad's toy anyway. any buyers out there? i think ma is asking for 15,000. wow - that sounds like a lot. i think that's the amount he put into it fixing it up, including the initial amount he paid for it. things. they don't matter so much it seems.

That's a great truck. My dad had a very similar truck, only his is turquoise blue. He would want to buy it, but I don't think mom would be too happy.
