My relationship with Dad was rocky, but we ended up having a fantastic relationship. I’m very grateful that he’s my father.

“Dad will always be
the first man I ever loved.”

Today is dedicated to love, change and gratitude.

Yeah when I get where I’m going
There’ll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I’ll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I’m going
Don’t cry for me down here

Three years ago today, my Dad was released from his cancer ridden body and the loss has been weighing heavy on my mind all month.

I write about it all the time, but life is short. It is so very short and we don’t have time to waste it fighting, hurting each other and giving into things that destroy us or other people.

If you have messed up or are currently messing up your life…CHANGE before it is too late!

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can’t answer
So much work to do

But when I get where I’m going
And I see my maker’s face
I’ll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace

Yeah when I get where I’m going
There’ll be only happy tears

I’m extremely grateful that I was able to spend so many hours talking to Dad as I drove home each day from work. That time we spent together mended the fences and left a huge garden of beautiful memories for me.

Thank you, Dad, for that priceless gift. I miss you.
