Ode to dad. My dad always took the time to spend with each and every one of his kids, in a very special and unbiased way. As I sit here reminiscing about our conversations, plenty of jokes come to mind. Followed by internal giggles and sometimes crying spells is what would happen to me when my dad was in an extra comedic mood.
I remember, all too well, the many times and the hours that I spent talking to my dad on the phone; as if he was sitting across the room from me, in a lounge chair, within eyesight.
I would spare no expense to call him, whether state to state or internationally,
In later times, I did take note, that dad got tired a lot quicker, than he used to, and that dad was not participating as much in normal everyday activities and networking anymore with friends or family members. He had been very social in his earlier days, when he was more content and feeling energetic and well rested.
I would try to think of an easier time, before my father retired. Remembering our long drives was so much fun! I enjoyed discovering new places, roads, and restaurants. I recollect sometimes visiting strange or new cities. Neither one of us had ever been to before. The novelty and the excitement, in these events, was like a rush of adrenaline before a marathon race.
Looking at dad's face light-up is one of the things that I miss the most. My dad was a very gregarious and expressive speaker and could be just as easily engaged, because he was also a great listener.
Almost nine years ago, dad went home to be with the GOD;I thank God for the time that dad was my dad! Dad was a gift from Heaven; as far as I'm concerned! "Thank you dad," with love!"
Everyday for me is a day to respect and remember my father: Everyday, in my mind, there are subtle,though constant reminders, of my dad, and of course, especially on Father's Day celebrations.
Father's Day, and my dad will always be like a reminiscent beat in my heart that gives me comfort and strength. "Until I go home to be with GOD, to see you too dad, this is not good-bye, it's see you when God is ready for me. As you know, I am headstrong and full of words and energy!"With that being said, I know that my life purpose has still not yet been met.
Remember your Heavenly Father on Father's Day. Know that you are not alone, there is the Father Abba, in Heaven who truly loves you. "Happy Father's Day to all of the fathers out there! Please show your fathers how truly special they are to you!
