SWEET TEA

10:10

I'm posting this at 10:10 am.

I enjoy the times I glance at the clock and notice the numbers have repeated or are in a sequence of some type.  You know, 11:11,  12:34,  5:55, that sort of thing.  I think it was the movie, "Extremely Close and Incredibly Loud" that talked about this very thing, saying it was good to let this serve as a visual reminder to pause and remember those we love who have passed.

This thought has stayed with me.

It's one of those "little things" that bring me joy as I'm doing life each day.  

Today many of us are enjoying/remembering our Dad, and we need no reminder on this special day.  Here is my Dad as a young man.  This is my favorite photo of him.  He would have turned 92 tomorrow, June 18.  He always said he was gonna live to be 100, and he is, except he is living in Heaven now and enjoying his new body.

What a lovely tribute to your daddy. I miss mine terribly too. He has been gone 10 years this summer. I would love to see his pink face and bright blue eyes again.

Sweet memories spoken aloud keep them alive in our hearts. My Dad would have been 91 this year...
