Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all Dad's out there!

Hubby and I got up early this morning and took a long walk. While we were walking, I couldn't help but think about my Dad and how much I missed him. As the years have gone by, I have gotten used to not having him here, but I have never gotten over it and I don't believe I ever will. I actually find that I miss him more. Occasionally, I am blessed to have dreams where he is still here that feel so real, only to awake to the sadness he is not and then it feels like I've lost him all over again. I was my Daddy's daughter, there was no question about it. I "got him" and he "got me"...we were 2 peas in a pod. I was and still am so proud to have been his daughter. Happy Father's Day Dad, I love you. Until we meet again...

Ahh, GG, I feel your sentiment. My wonderful Dad has been gone 24 years now. He was a wonderful man and I still miss him so very much.

Hugs,

Hi Peg,

Thanks. Looks like we were both lucky to have amazing Dads, simply by the fact we both still miss them after all these years. We were both blessed. <3

What a wonderful tribute. It's an ache that never goes away. But it is the love that will always keep them close to us.

Blessings for you ~Reenes
