What a blessing

Yesterday, I was having a pity party of sorts.  Have you ever had a day where you just didn't feel "right?"
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.


  1. An advanced happy father's day to you!

  2. No matter how exciting the prospect of moving on is I think the old place tugs at one's heart. Its a bittersweet time because at one level you're happy but at another (perhaps not easily recognisable) sad to leave old comforts and communities behind. Could that be what your heart is trying to say. I'll be sure on call on Dad today. Thank you.

  3. Yes, thank you for the well-wishing. I need to call my dad, again. :)
