Today I reflect on the time I had with my Dad who is now in heaven watching over us. I was so very lucky to have a strong and loving man in my life. He taught me things that I didn’t even know I had learned until years later. I was also spoiled and very much loved at the same time. My children have a strong influence with my husband and I am thankful to have him in my life as well. This journey of life would not be the same without him.
I am so very thankful for everything that I have had in this life and everything that is come. The journey has been hard at times, we have faced many difficulties and set backs and disappointments but we are still here by the grace of God. Some of the challenges are hard to accept and can be a daily struggle but I think about my grand children and am so lucky in so many other ways. My family and my chosen family are the most important thing in my life, all the noise that surrounds us is insignificant and I have learned to focus my attention on the blessings.
We got to see our kids minus one who we hope to be reunited with one day, and the grands. I live for the look in my husbands eyes when he sees the grandchildren. It fills my heart with such love and joy. We spent most of the time tag teaming them and following the toddler around the house that is not toddler proof! Watching cartoon movies and planning a trip soon to see more family and celebrate some milestone birthdays.
Today we rest and get ready for the week coming up. Today I remember my dad, celebrate my husband, son in law, brother and all the dads out there doing what they do.
Reflection is part of the journey of life and I love to spend some time doing this, meditating and thanking God for all I have been given. HAPPY FATHER’S DAY to all! Be blessed and enjoy your day!
Until next time
