Craig, I read this the day you posted it; wanted to respond but not sure. Kept coming back to it, and the pain and question is undeniable. That saddens me, and want to offer my prayers... and I hope Daddy offers his voice in guidance.
Thanks for reaching out, lexus. Prayers appreciated.
Craig,Absolutely beautiful. My favorite uncle died 8 years ago this month of pancretic cancer just days before his birthday. I think of him often this time of year.
SB,I appreciate your sharing that. I really do. Family is everything, no?
Hey Craig,We love, love the new version of your "89". hugsW just received a letter from one of our sons and I opened it right after re-reading "89" He opened with a quote from a book he is reading, coincidentally joining in the discussion by reminding us of the truth that returns again and again.Matt is reading "Broken"by William Cope Moyers, who opens with a quote that really touched him. "A disciple asked the Rabbi "why does the Torah tell us to place these words upon your hearts? Why does it not tell us to place these holy words "in" our hearts?"The Rabbi answers, "It is because as we are, our hearts are closed, and we cannot place the holy words in our hearts, so we place them on top of our hearts. And there they stay until, one day, the heart breaks and the words fall in."Your Daddy lives in you and all who are willing to add his story into that place where love is nurtured. We raised a glass for your Dad and a toast to the Tuskegee men of honor. Your Dad has been heard by all whom have taken the time to read your words of love and honor
this was beautiful, craig. Thank you for sharing this with us. And though I am late, I hope that it wasn't too hard for you.
