As you might have read last week, my dad was in the hospital
after falling and breaking his hip socket. Actually it was shattered.
In a blink of an eye a life can change.
It can take away someone you love.
I am so sorry to say that it did.
He had been a feisty man... his entire life.
Yet he had a huge soft spot too!
I have to call it a T.K.O.
(technical knock out, in boxing terms)
Yesterday there was an intense storm in my area.
There was thunder just rolling above for a half an hour and
wind so strong it blew the rain sideways.
There was even hail.
Hail in July!?!
I thought to myself...
awe, my dad made it to Heaven!
I knew he would make a ruckus when he got there!
I also knew these things about him...
he was a dreamer.
he told stories... often and repeatedly. (smile)
he made me laugh.
he loved his mother.
he was a good man.
