Reflections On This Significant Day

Daddysgrave

Today especially…because I lost my precious father, July 29, 2010… on this 5th Anniversary of his death…grieving the loss of his presence and loving guidance, his wisdom and compassion…his voice, his thoughts, and our long talks about everything important in life…my heart is heavy at this very hour…this, the hour of day he left our world. I keep his memory alive, recalling his part in my life, in some way, each and every day. I miss you Daddy and hope you might somehow feel the love and admiration—the profound gratitude for the incredible father you were— I hold you dearly within my heart as I think of you now and forever. I love you Daddy…I still need you, too. I always will…

Mr Holland, mentor   R.I.P.

I gratefully remember Mr. H.K. Holland, my mentor and professional role model, who died July 29, 2004 — May he rest in peace…I miss him and think of him often…appreciating his faith and confidence in me to give me a chance to realize my dream, for always believing in me, encouraging me, even when I wasn’t so sure at times that I would be able to achieve it.

and today I celebrate the special man who has been beside me through nearly two decades of tragedy, loss, disappointments...more than that, he has been the center of my universe, source of strength, comfort, and so very much joy that makes my life  so full..so beautiful...so filled with love. Happy Birthday, my precious LeeRoy...

…and today I celebrate the special man who possesses my very heart — such a wonderful man, who has been beside me through nearly two decades of tragedy, loss, disappointments…more than that, he has been the center of my universe, source of strength, comfort, and so very much of the joy that makes my life so full..so beautiful…so filled with love.
Happy Birthday, my precious LeeRoy…I will love you, always…you are the king of my heart.

I have been blessed beyond measure to have had each of these awesome men in my life…the three most important men, most dear to me, most loved and admired by me, closest in my heart to me…it is mystifying and incredible, too…that they all have this day in common, and I believe it was no accident that makes this so.

  1. Hey CJ. Between my hectic work schedule and stuff, I haven’t seen you around in ages. I do hope you and Mousie are well. Huge hugs to you both. ❤

    • Thank you Suz. We have been on a bit of a hiatus, though we do not know why. CJ thought she was lacking in creativity. It is my guess that she has been mourning the loss of Shadow. I say that because she hasn’t been her old self ever since he died. She will snap out of it soon, I hope. I may be forced to start my own blog if she doesn’t. Lol! Thanks for the nice message. It feels good to know someone has missed us.
      We hope you are doing well and all is going great in your heavenly part of the globe. Hug and kisses from both, XXxxMousiexxXX

  2. I don’t think these things are accidents of timing. Cherish the memories of your father and mentor and give Leeroy a hug. And, toss Mousie a cracker while you’re at it. Your feelings must float on this day (I know I missed it by one but I’m catching up this week).

CJ)
