Anniversary

I see what day it is, and I think of him, tall, strong, solid as a tree. Gifted with wisdom, love, curiosity (although not as bad as mine!), and that God-awful sense of humor. The Lord heard his jokes, wanted to know what all the groaning was about, and, 5 years ago, called him to his side. He left us, his seedlings, but we are his, blessed with love, curosity, some wisdom (in varying degrees), and a sense of humor. We carry on, strong in the knowledge of his love for us and our love for each other. Dad, if you’re looking down at us from Heaven, know that we all miss you and love you, and ask the Lord to look after any one of us who travels far from the family, that he or she may return to their loved ones.
