Rough Road Ahead
Sunday, March 09, 2008
Well friends & SP family...one of those really rough roads is up ahead...see, tomorrow, March 10th-is the 3rd anniversary of my fathers passing...as many of you already know....he was my everything... as he was to my mom, my brother and to each of his 6 grandchildren... he helped to raise each grandchild... and helped his own children in more ways than can be counted... the pain is still as rough as it was the day we found him.... though i know he walks with me every step of every day... this year, i am going to try to do what he would do... what he has taught us all to do... that is to smile (even through the tears) laugh (even through the sobs) and reach out to help those that need just need a little help from a friend (even through my hands shaking)
as a challenge to all of you...i ask that in memory of my father... you will do the same. hugs to each of you and thank you... you each have helped me, though you may not realize it, by just being there....laughing with me...crying with me...and encouraging me to take one more step.
