Today is the 28th Anniversary of my dad's death.
I can't even believe he's been gone for almost 30 years.
That doesn't stop me from missing him - or thinking about him.
My dad was the best!
Very laid back - a self proclaimed Hippie. Someone everyone loved.
I was "Daddy's Little Girl."
As Easter rolls around every year, my dad comes closer and closer to heart and mind.
I begin to have that familiar pang of heart ache realizing I won't ever see him again on this plane. I reflect upon my childhood with my dad and my adulthood without him.
Many times I was feeling down and longed to hear my dad's voice telling me that he's proud of me & that I can do it! That I'm kind, smart and beautiful & hear him say how much he loves his little girl.
My dad was always my biggest cheerleader. No matter what I was doing - he was sure that I'd be the best at it. Whether I was or not. He was always sure to encourage me and make me feel like I was the best of everything. Whatever I did, he beamed with pride & told not just me - but everyone how wonderful I was. He truly lifted me up and made me feel special and important.
So on this day, Daddy - I tell you that I miss you every single day. You're in my heart, you're in my soul and I love you.
May the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand and keep you.
With all my love,
Your Little Girl (All Grown Up)
