Text From Dad

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

My Dad went back to San Diego a couple days ago. At 3am, I received this unusually emotional text from him:

I love you so much. You're my "baby Leah". I was there when you were born. I cut your umbilical cord. I'll never judge you or disparage you. You can always tell me what you're feeling. Please call or text me anytime. I don't ever want you to feel isolated. You're not.

Wow. That is just EXACTLY what I needed to hear today. *tears*

    I wish my dad was around to say those words... I miss him everyday! Cherish every moment that he is on this earth, to give you encouragement and love. I'm glad you have him to lean on when you aren't feeling so great! Things will get better for you. Pick yourself up and dust yourself off! You matter! Have a great week! emoticon

    Fantastic! I'm so happy for you. Nothin' like knowing Dad loves, understands, and cares about you so deeply. You're very lucky to have a Dad like that, so treasure him.

    I completely understand how your Dad feels about you, and how hopeless he can sometimes feel when he can't protect you from the daggers of the battle of everyday life. It's a "parent" thing, ya know? Keep holding on to this feeling, and make sure you can reach for it the next time he says/does something that ticks you off, willya? Life is short.
