Day 7 - Dad

Happy birthday Dad!

I woke with this thought this morning. I wanted to pick up the phone to tell you, but I knew you wouldn't answer.

I thought about my day as I got ready for work. I had a hard conversation coming up today. I thought of you and what your advice would be: you can do anything if you set your mind to it.

I scraped the snow off my car this morning. I thought about you when I smiled and realized how pleased I was to have gotten gas after work yesterday instead of needing to stop this morning. I could let my car run longer and warm up like you told me to AND still stay above a half tank as you said I should always try to do.

I said happy birthday to my principal when I got to school. I thought about you and how you both have big number birthdays - 40 for him and 75 for you.

I thought about you a lot today.

I hope there were lots of friends and loved ones gathered with you around your cake today Dad.

Happy birthday in heaven.

  1. There is really something to that "half tank of gas" advice. I'm glad your dad gave you that talk and you held it in a memory.
