Today was a big day. I’m glad I got to spend some time outside, even if it meant that I got sidetracked from what I really should have been doing. I needed (wanted) to get away, on a day-trip adventure and I didn’t resist all that much as a distraction presented itself.
Today was my Dad’s birthday and it’s been nearly 43 years that he passed. It’s hard to believe at times and his passing is one thing time has not healed in all the years. Time has made it easier to accept that he will never return and come home from work, that very day he left and died, but time has also shown me that I will miss him for the rest of my days. He was a special man and it means a lot to me to have so many of his traits. A mini version of him that is not all that mini anymore.
Today was also my Mom’s big day in the hospital. My cousin texted me saying that she is doing good but now comes the wait for the results, to hopefully get some answers and see what’s next. She has been on my mind and I feel bad that I’m not there. To hold her hand and just be there other than in spirit. Sometimes that just doesn’t seem enough and you need to be there in person I think. A big “Thank you” to everybody for your kind words and prayers in regards to my Mom.
So both of my parents have been on my mind today. I look like my Mom but my soul and the silliness comes from my Dad and if I look deep inside my heart, I know that we had a special bond that can’t be broken. Even beyond death it remains strong and I know that I will be forever “Daddy’s Girl”.
I love you….❤
And now the owl has shown up and is hooting outside my window. I still have mixed emotions about the owl, but will believe in the positive and that a great honor has been bestowed upon me to be paid a visit.
