8 years ago today my life changed forever.
Although my dad had been battling lung cancer for a long time, it is still a sad memory I have of the day he died. I remember crying as I held my dad's still warm body right after he died. He wasn't breathing anymore. He was lifeless. I kept asking God why he had to go when he was so deserving of life. As I sat crying in his bed, all I kept telling myself was that at least now he was finally no longer in pain.
I thought again that day about the fact that my father worked harder than anyone I have ever known and never did anything for himself. I vowed that day I would not die without having tried to put my music out into the world. It was always my dream but one I never felt I deserved or was good enough to do. Two years later, I finally gathered myself up off the floor and started my journey.
Dad, I still miss you every day but especially today, the day you passed away. Thank you for everything you ever did for me and the strength you inspire me to find every day!! You were always my hero. All I can ever hope is to be half the man you were and love the world as unselfishly every day as you did. You are forever in my heart. May your memory be eternal... I just can't stop listening to this today. Love you dad.
Our 2018 New Year’s Eve 1980’s inspired party. A wonderful evening with friends, music and love. Our house was overflowing but size is no barrier to genuine human connection and celebrating life together. A fabulous evening enjoyed by adults and children alike. It doesn’t need to be the poshest, biggest or most organised event, it just needs to be lovingly put together with friends. #lillyisabellastyle#friends#parties#everydayisanoccasion#creatingourownlives#memoriesforever
