Admiration: A Moment Lasting A Lifetime!

Admiration
Thousands of memories flooded my mind watching this one moment. This is his yearly tradition – to give his two kids balloons on their birthdays. Our son turned 17 a couple of days ago 🙂 I don’t see him stopping this tradition any time soon 🙂 🙂

Today Was a Good Day – Weekly photo challenge

It was a good day when Dad stopped at the store, on the way home from work, to pick up 16 pink balloons for his sweet daughter on her sweet 16th birthday. A good day, indeed!

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Today Was a Good Day.”

Honorific

If you could pick one person to be commemorated on a day dedicated to him/her alone, who would you choose?

My Dad! I would want to meet his soul in my next life, and lives thereafter.  I think of him everyday.  I honor him by emulating his zest for life.

A highly educated man, my Dad chose life’s offerings with great care.  His generosity to others was vast and private.  He loved all people.  He said, “Same God made us all.”

He carried with himself a cuddly bear personality, giving away warm smiles and hearty laughs. Sharing jokes and stories.

My Dad was born with a gentle soul.  I love him a lot.  I hugged him a lot.  His hugs made me feel safe and strong.

I can hear him.  I can hear him clearing his throat and telling me to be patient and to hang in there, that things will work out, as long as I keep working on things, the best way that I can.

It’s been a great privilege and honor to know and love my Dad.  A humble man, and a man of integrity.  I miss him greatly.  I also know that he is with me always, guiding me and protecting me.

My Dad passed on August 26, 2012, on  my wedding anniversary.  I know one thing for sure, Someone Up There is happier because my Dad is there😊.  I love you Daddy!
