Dear Dad…

Dear Dad,

I’m sitting alone at the kitchen table, staring at my iPad.

Paul Simon’s “The Boy In The Bubble” just came on Pandora.

I can still hear you singing along with the song (typing that made me cry).

Amazing. “Son of a Preacher Man” is playing now.

Are you sending me a sign that you know I’m writing about you (we’d look over to each other, smile, and silently agree that we were done changing channels when we caught Pulp Fiction on TV)?

I hope so.

Actually, I know so.

Thank you.

I couldn’t miss you more.

love/thanks,
gabe

    Beautiful. I can literally feel your pain but I love the way your father let you know he was there. ❤ Hugs, Lori

  2. I can so relate to you knowing your dad is “tapping you on the shoulder” to let you know he’s there… my son does that to me, quite often. You learned how to recognize spirit’s presence, even through the time of mourning at his passing. (Yes, I read your book “Where Is God When Our Loved Ones Get Sick?”.) I’ve not come as far in my grieving process, but am gradually opening my heart and mind to the fact that my son is trying to get my attention, letting me know he wants to help heal my broken heart and to make me understand that he is still with me, and loves me.

  3. I ould never express what reading this meant to me for fear of breaking down, but please know it was truly touching. I feel the sentiments to my depths.

    Blessed Blogging to you,
    xxoo, Lady Juno
