Today is the day of my Father's birth.
|Poppa with all of his Grandchildren|
The only thing my father ever asked of me was to quit smoking. I figured if I quit on his birthday it would be my gift to him.....and we can't take back a gift we have given. Smart huh? Today is three years and yes I will be counting :-)
I miss him as much today as any day. I am forever grateful God chose him to parent me.Teaching morals, values, and the importance of honesty and work ethic that are forever with me. He loved me unconditionally. I try and live everyday exhibiting behavior and demonstrating love that would make him proud and give him reason to smile.
Looking forward to the day I can run to him and once again receive some Poppa hugs, there is nothing like one of his hugs.........this is what echos from my heart today.....and everyday.
Happy Birthday Poppa!
