Daddy’s Little Girl

That’s me and my Daddy.  The picture taken 21 years ago when my Daddy lived in Florida, hence the deep tan.  My Daddy died on Easter Sunday.  I was out there in Pennsylvania with him but had left his bedside two hours before he passed.

When I kissed him good night that Easter night, this time I refrained from saying –  see you tomorrow Daddy.

I want to tell you many things about my Daddy but it’s all a bit too fresh now.  Save this, I always knew when I was in his presence that I was loved and adored by my Father.  Quite the opposite was true of my relationship with my Mother, so my Daddy made life sweet for me.  I knew there was a heaven right here on earth just looking in his love filled eyes.

So this is part of the reason why I’ve taken a hiatus.  Sometimes I want to rush back and tell you all the latest new thing I’m working with and some day that will happen and it will be as if I was never gone at all.

Until then, I’ll leave you with these snippets from poems:

“I am the one whose love
overcomes you, already with you
when you think to call my name….”
Jane Kenyon

“May you have the eyes to see
that no visitor arrives without a gift,
and no guest leaves without a blessing.”
John O’Donohue

Bless me, bless you all.
