I Say That Every Day...

I've been thinking of you a lot today, Dad.

I woke up this morning after having a dream about my wedding day.  We were talking about sports as you walked me down the aisle.  It was kind of a nightmare being that I hate sports - until I remembered how amazing it was that you walked me down the aisle at all.

I've been thinking of you a lot today, Dad.

When the boys were at school, I sat at my computer and got on the phone and was working on "Gavin things" - insurance calls and ordering things for him.  I came upon this quote on the internet that I thought you could have written.  It was, after all, the way you lived your life...

"To be happy, do not add to your possessions - but subtract from your desires."

I've been thinking of you a lot today, Dad.

I talked to Mom about twenty five times.  The house is getting a LOT of attention and a LOT of great feedback and I really think it's going to sell fast.  I know you are watching everything and taking care of Mom, as you always did, from your new location.  You always had a way of making things happen, no matter what.  How you're still doing that from Heaven is anyone's guess - but I am not at all surprised.

I've been thinking of you a lot today, Dad.

As I tucked my sons in bed and whispered my little prayers to Heaven that they stay safe and happy.  I thought of all those times I came upon you on your knees next to your bed - probably saying the same prayers for your children.

I've been thinking of you a lot today, Dad.

I say that every day.
