I was feeling down in the dumps. I should be happier, particularly since my wife and I are relocating this Saturday - much, much closer to the beach. Around 2:00 AM, I awoke with a start and walked around the house. Usually, I do not check my phone but noticed a text message from one of my daughters. It said:
Hey dad, you were on my heart tonight. Just wanted to tell you I love you.I've been thinking a lot about fatherhood since Father's Day is coming up. I have spoken to my dad in the last few days and told him how much I love him and how sorry I was for being a goofy, headstrong teenager. On the other side of that equation, I have thought about the kids God gave me and how I could have done so much more and been a much better dad.
If your dad is still here - do yourself a favor...call him before Father's Day and let him know, "I love you, Dad." I'm sure it will mean the world to him.
I have finished two books of which I am writing reviews and will post them soon.
