Missing my daddy today... seems as though the older I get, the closer I get in age to my parents. They always seemed "so old", but now, not so much. Today would have been my dad's 75th birthday. It's hard to believe that he's been gone from this earth for almost 10 years now. There's not a single day that goes by that I don't think about him at least once. I miss those silly little jokes he was always calling to tell me, those hugs and belly laughs I would get from him when I told a silly joke, or just needed a hug. He was always my #1 fan and would tell me time and time again how proud he was of me. I miss that so much and I know he would have been awfully proud of me and the accomplishments I've made since he's been gone ~ but I can feel him watching over me and somehow I know he knows and he's proud.

So I'm dedicating today to him...I think I'll go out and take some pictures, since I somehow know. through my eyes, he can see what I do.

  1. Sweet post and I can echo your sentiments. I lost my Dad 6 years ago this past January. I sure wish I had him for just one more hug and a wink and a sparkle from his eyes!
    You're a tribute to him Kathy and he would be proud.

  2. awe..thank you, Beth ~ you're a sweetheart :)

  3. You're Dad would have been so proud of you and I'm sure he is. I'm lucky to still have my Dad, but Clancy's father just passed on Friday and his stepdad (really his dad) about a year ago. He's feeling a bit rudderless at the moment.
    Hugs from me to you.

  4. brought tears to my eyes Kathy - very nicely written. Mr. James was always so full of fun and laughter - missing him with you. Chris :)

  5. Thanks Jen & Chris ~ I wonder if he saw how much snow we got today!
