Just a very short note, today. I woke up this morning and thought it was just a beautiful day. How thankful I am to have the things I do, how thankful I am to have a healthy family, a stable job, and really….that I should just celebrate life.
I had to take my daughter to Des Moines for an appointment this morning. I love to go places with her! She makes me feel young! At her appointment she was filling out some forms and I heard her very quietly sigh and let out a small awwww. I looked at her paper and asked what is it, Aut?
She pointed to today’s date 5/19…I felt that little sigh and awww slip out too.
My dad passed away 6 years ago, today. My dad had colon cancer and had pretty good quality of life up until the last couple of months. This I am thankful for. I sure miss him.
As with much of my life, I wasted away a lot of precious years with bad decisions. But thankfully my dad was able to see me pull myself up by my bootstraps and make a better life for me and my kids. I am glad it happened that way. In his last 5 years of life he was able to not worry about us and our safety.
Hug your loved ones a bit tighter today!
