It is always soooo tough to find a gift for my Dad. He is 81, has little vision, hard of hearing and has no hobbies. Every year I struggle to come up with something. Yikes! Loved you post.

this post resonated with me more than you could possibly imagine.

My Dad was my entire world. (He passed in 2001). He was ALWAYS my world.

When I was 5 I used to wait at the end of the driveway for his car when he came home from work. I would run behind his car clapping, EVERY DAY, rain or shine.

One day we will talk but I never had the proper nurturing from my mother that most kids have. She never wanted any of us and made that clear on a daily basis.

It was my Dad I cried for when I was ill or had a bad dream.

It was my Dad who escorted me to all of my new schools when we moved.

My biggest thrill was when my Dad would bring home grease pencils and newsprint from the paper for me to draw with (we both shared artistic talent). He would draw me Mickey Mouse (my fave) on a daily basis. I was about 5. I remember being appalled when I would go to a friend's home and I would ask their Dad to draw me Mickey Mouse and they couldn't. My 5 yr old mind was saying "what's up with that???!!!"

My Dad had an amazing and wicked sense of humor. I loved when I would make him laugh.

He taught me to fish, taught me about sports and gave me a lifelong gift of appreciating men and being able to relate to them with ease due to genuinely LIKING men!

I will shut up now because the comment field isn't meant for a dissertation but I wanted to THANK YOU for touching my heart with this wonderful post. You enabled me to have a visit with my Dad's spirit. THANK YOU!
