Memories of Love...reposting this today in honor of Valentines Day
I decided to re-post this today in honor of Valentines Day; I am so blessed to have so many people in my life to love and be loved by, Happy Valentines Day!!
Today is my Dad's birthday and this month will mark the fifth year without him, I miss him so much and sometimes can't believe he's gone. The other day my brother brought to my attention the fact that I had referred to him in the present tense "when I look at Daddy" I had said, I didn't even realize I said it that way and afterward it really made me think, I do still carry him with me in so many ways, I really am reminded of him daily and wouldn't want it any other way.
This necklace was inspired by him, he was such a source of love in my life. He truly was the first man I loved, he gave me my first book of love poems, he always wrote sweet encouraging letters and would always draw hearts on the page. He showed me the best example of a loving relationship with the love he exhibited for his life partner and my other dad ,Dan.
Because he was such a master of celebration, I know the best way to honor him today would be just that; to celebrate his life and the love he left in his path.
Happy Birthday, Daddy, I love you.
