While I celebrate with my children I’m also aware that this will be my tenth Father’s Day without my own dad. Dad passed away in August 2002, just a few days before his 83rd birthday.
I really do miss dad but it’s not with an overwhelming sadness because I know he’s in a better place and I know I’ll see him again one day.
I still wish he was able to see Emily and James growing up into the wonderful young people that they’re becoming and to get to know Pauline even better.
I wish I could sit down and hear him tell me one of his stories …. again …. and again.
I look forward to a new day when we’ll catch up on everything we’ve missed over the years.
“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” – Revelation 21:4
