Each time I visit my daughter's blog, I am reminded of how long it has been since the last time I posted on my own. I can't believe it has been at least 3 months! Where the heck did the time go??
It got away from me because I was involved in wedding festivities for our oldest son. Many, many wonderful parties by many, many wonderful people. Then of course we had the big weekend of rehearsal party and wedding. A time that will be etched in my mind forever. I have always loved the song "What a wonderful world" but after Owens' wedding it is my favorite. My husband danced to it with our daughter Heather when she got married and Owens selected it for us to dance to. I honestly did not want the song to end!
I have also been enjoying some much needed family time. Not by choice, but my work week has been cut down to four days a week. At first I was really sad about that but what was I thinking! I love having Fridays off and getting some extra time to enjoy life with my family. The only time it really bothers me is every other week on pay day...haha Didn't take long for the cut in pay to be felt. However I am blessed to have a job in today's economy.
Wow - it is already almost the middle of June. June also means Father's Day weekend. That is now a bittersweet day for me. I reflect on the many, many fond memories of my daddy and yet 22 years later I miss him more and more. One of the greatest gifts God ever gave me was my daddy. He didn't tell me how to live....he lived it and let me watch. I learned so much from him. He was a big man... simply put a gentle giant. I have tried to never take for granted that my Heavenly Father gave me one of the most amazing earthly fathers. I love the saying that any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a daddy...that pretty much says it all! Morgan Sowell....you were the best of the best. I love you and miss you dearly.
