Help for today & Hope for tomorrow

I recently went to a wedding for a friend of my family. As i was there, i couldn't help but become emotional, but it wasn't for the obvious reasons. It only made me realize that my dad won't be there when i get married & he won't be there to "give me away." I'm not getting married anytime soon but even the thought of it is devastating. I know it's too early to know how i'll actually feel when that day comes. I can only imagine. It almost makes me not want to get married. It's hard to discuss that with my friends who have their fathers 'cause they have no clue how much it hurts. I'll never know what it feels like to share such a special moment with my dad. They say "he'll be there in spirit & he would want me to be happy, not sad." While those things may be true, it's easier for them to say that when their dad is going to walk them down the aisle. It's pretty crappy for me to already have "wedding blues" when that day is so far away.

Sorry you're feeling blue, Laura.  I lost my dad when I was 9, so it's normal; I remember feeling the same way about weddings when I was younger.  A thought crossed my mind today RE: all grievers to try focusing MORE on the happiness we shared with our loved ones instead of how sad we are that they went to heaven ahead of us.   I know it's easier said than done...
