“HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!”
Today is not just another day and if you were still here we would be on the phone. I can hear you now as I run through the conversation in my head. It’s like you never left. I’ll just tell you how things are going…
Daddy…you would be so proud of grandson #5! He did real well in track this season and made it to Regionals! He broke another personal record the other night and as he was speeding toward the finish line his head tilted back ever so slightly …a smile crossed my face and I remembered “Chariots of Fire”.
Daddy…you should see this little weed! Your #1 great-grandson is so special and smart. The other night he was watching grandad drink out of his Yeti cup….the cup went up and back onto the table. He wanted that cup! Then he realized there was one sitting next to him…
He immediately fell in love with the coolness of the metal sides and the smooth lid. “Of course I had to wash the lid before I could finish my drink!” Oh the squeaks and squeals he made as he knawed that cup. You would have loved it!
Daddy…I thought of you today and thought I should call you…but then I remembered you weren’t there. You know how we are doing and laughing along with us. There are no more tears and pain for you and I am glad. We will be alright and we are taking care of mama too!
I love you…and miss you…“HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY!”
“May your cup runneth over with joy, laughter and really fabulous coffee!”
