The Living Years

This song came out a couple yrs after my Dad passed away. I wasn't at a bad spot with my Dad but this song has a lot of truth in it. The one part where it says I wasn't there when my Father passed away. It really gets me but I know that I did get to tell my Dad then but he never got the chance to know his grandchildren. So this song sorta hits home to a point.

So Dad this is for you. I love you so much and 24 yrs will pass this Saturday and How I wish I could tell you so much even though I know you already know.

Last evening Jared and Paul were having a disscusion if that's what you call it. I thought of this song and how Jared should talk to his Dad now while he has the chance. Things right now are not good between them. The living years is what matters how we treat one another day to day. I pray that hoping someday Jared will see that his Dad is only looking out for him.

Life is too precious and you never know when is your last minute or second with someone. Every day matters so much.

I've always liked that song. Reminds you to tell the people you love every day how much they mean to you!

You are so right,Caroline!
You never know when it's your time,so you should just love one another!
Hope things get better with your hubby and stepson.

so sorry Caroline that it has been so many years since your dad passed on; I'm also sorry too he didn't have the chance to see your adorable children, but he will one day :)

you are right, life is so precious and so short and we need to treat our loved ones with kindness and respect and love, even though sometimes it is hard to do so. I know whenever I have gotten upset with my son about something, I always call him very soon after to say sorry for any words that might have hurt him as well as to tell him I love him.....just in case....because you never know

I've never heard that song before but you're right. We never know what will happen each day of our lives. I hope soon Jared understands how much his dad loves him and cares about his future. Hugs to you as you remember your dad.
