One of Those “I’m Missing You Days”


You were my friend, confidant, counselor, consoler, strength and staunches supporter. You were my dad, my Big Daddy.  I realize you’re in a better place. I’m wise enough to know that you aren’t suffering anymore. I am blessed enough to know that you are walking the streets of gold and I have grown in my faith enough to realize that you have passed from labor to reward and will not have to endure what this world and its occupants are destined to endure. Yet, there are days like this…the “I’m missing you days” that I am selfish enough to wish you were still here…still with me.

But I’ll do what I normally do on these, “I’m missing you days.” I’ll feel sad that you’re gone and I’ll thank God for blessing me with the time I had you in my life. I’ll remember all that you brought to my life and I’ll pray I brought you happiness as well. I’ll realize how blessed I am to have had you as a male role model and I’ll remind myself that God does NOT  make mistakes, and just as He knew what He was doing when He chose you to be my daddy…He knew what He was doing when He called you home.

So on this, “I’m missing you day”, to you I say…I love you Big Daddy and if I’m sure of anyone’s love, loyalty and devotion, it would be yours because I truly have no doubt that you loved me unconditionally. Oh, what a feeling!

So until my next “I’m missing you day” I’ll remember how your love made me feel and I’ll draw strength from your legacy. Thank you so much for being the man you were. And tickle, tickle. No one can tickle like you. 🙂
