Wednesday's Walk - Dad

It's Wednesday's Walk .........

Today I'm remembering a very special person in my life ..........

My Dad ......

We were the best of friends. I know Mom's and daughter's are close but my Dad and I could talk about anything. So I was going through some pictures I had and I found this one. I was 3 yrs old and it was at Christmas time. My Dad used to sit and hold me and my brother Kevin and read or sing to us in the rocking chair.

Everytime I look at this picture I think about now I could have pictured him holding grandchildren on his lap. Doing those same things he used to do with me. He passed away Aug 28 ,1986 and never got the chance to meet any of his grandkids.

One thing I do know is that on that Great Day when Jesus comes back to take us all to heaven , I will see him again. I know it will be exciting to see him again and to sit on his lap again or see him with all his grandkids.

Dad , I miss you so much not a day goes by that I don't think of you.

Love you always
your daughter
Caroline :)

I know you miss him so much! He would love holding all his grandchildren in his lap. One day he'll get to do that!

I too have lost my father, almost 4 years ago. I miss him but look forward to that day I will see him again in Heaven! Thanks for sharing your sweet memory of your father and how special he was to you.

What a great memory! My favorite pictures of my childhood are Christmas pictures! Isn't it great that while we miss those we love, we can do it with a hope of seeing them again?

That was so sweet Caroline. Your dad sounds like a perfectly wonderful man. I'm so sorry he wasn't able to hold his grandchildren, but he will someday - for ETERNITY! Isn't that wonderful? :)

The picture is great - and you are adorable!

Thanks for sharing. So glad I visited.
