A Bittersweet Day
Today was lovely, weatherwise, and we had frozen yogurt with 3 of our grandchildren. My hubby helped me plant a beautiful new rose bush in our backyard. And 6 years ago today, my dad passed away. I can't believe that amount of time has zipped by. It seems like yesterday that I held his hand and said goodbye to him. Perhaps one day I'll write about him, but I'm too emotional today. I found this on my sister's FB page--I think it's very sweet, and I don't remember having heard this one before, but my brain is a little fuzzy from a migraine (hadn't had one for a week 'til this morning!)~I'm sorry, I don't know who wrote this, so I can't give credit yet.
"I wish Heaven had a phone so I could hear your voice again . . .
I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and a picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part.
God has you in his arms.. I have you in my heart."
