Missing you today (((Daddy))).. Fathers Day.. June 21st

Sunday, June 21, 2009

well here I am... missing you so much (((Daddy)))
I miss all the times you were there for me.. no matter what it was... to give me your strength and love and encouragement to go on.. to help me make the right decisions.. to help me with anything and everything...
What wonderful memories flood my mind... even as a small child... you ALWAYS were there for me... holding me tight when i had a nightmare... holding me close and kissing my tears away when i fell...
teaching me how to fish.. ride a bicycle... ride the Tn walking horses....
teaching me to drive...
taking us on so so many family vacations.... thru the years.. always providing for your family...
me sitting on your lap during Sunday School and you reading the Bible to me...
giving me your wisdom thru the years to survive this world we live in....
your wisdom and knowledge of the 'old ways' to plant the garden as we did every year together....and just 'how' to pick all the vegtables... how to water it so the garden would grow well...
mowing the grass here on the farm... raking the leaves in the fall....
camping for years and trout fishing.. sharing your thoughts and all the memories you shared of how it was when you grew up....
Working 3 jobs to make sure we never did 'without'....
helping so so many people... ones that i never knew existed until they came to pay their respects to you at the funeral home...
So many told me how you had helped them get a place to live.. feed them.. clothed them.. and never ask for anything in return.. not one penny back....
You were such a kind hearted, loving man... deep inside you had a heart of gold...
I thank GOD that I knew this part of you... that others never knew....
What an honor to have called you MY Dad.
I love and miss you more than words can say... I think of you and know that you are still with me here on this earth ... watching over me.. my 'Angel'....
and as the last words u spoke to me...
I KNOW we WILL see each other again.. like you told me.. you will be waiting for me at Heavens Gates....
You now are at peace with NO MORE pain... and for that I am sooo thankful...
so so much pain and suffering you endured.... and what a fighter you were!
68 days in ICU in ALA... then so so many more days of recovery in 4 other hospitals and yes! you even got to come home and take that last camping trip with Moma. ... and even learned to WALK again and function as best as you could...
I admire you so!!!
I will attend church today and give thanks to God that he blessed me with 80 wonderful years with you my best friend.. my confident and best daddy~
Until we meet again~
