My Father Who Art in Heaven

I just want to make a quick personal if you're not into personal, stop reading now.  On this day in 1975, I lost my father.  He had his first heart attack when he was only 37....and died of heart failure just one week prior to his 46th birthday.  It was a pretty gruesome week prior to his passing and the years between 37 and 45 were really hard.  He was very ill and we went everywhere to seek help.  My life in those years consisted of my days in hospitals, clinics and doctor offices...all hoping for a chance to make him better.

I miss him so so much....and I feel his presence each day.

I was a young single girl and it made quite an impression on me.....about taking care of your body and spirit and knowing straight on the fragility of life.  I'm not going to dwell on that right here, right now....I just want to honor my dad today and just tell him...I LOVE YOU DAD...I know you're with me night and day....stay with me because I need you so so much....


  1. Thinking of you on this bittersweet day. May the wonderful memories of your Dad be with you forever and may they comfort you during the hardest of times. When looking down, your dad must be very proud of the woman you have become and the daughters you have raised to become beautiful, strong, independant women. Have a wonderful day, sweetie. xoxo

  2. It doesn't matter how many years go by, you always remember the passing of a loved one. You can see everything perfectly in that day, as if you are watching a reel of film. They seem to be with you always and that makes it a little easier, not much, but a little. I hope that you do something special just for you today! One thing that lets you catch you breath and just breathe! Thinking of you. Jennifer x


I would absolutely LOVE to hear from you....It REALLY makes my day!
