If I had one more day.
I would make you your coffee just the way you loved it and serve it with our favorite bacon and egg sandwich.
I would gather all ingredients and have you cook your fabulous dishes, but this time I would take notes.
I would open up a bottle of your favorite wine and we would drink it while cooking.
I would sneak you another Godiva chocolate while Lala wasn't watching.
I would take a photo of our hands.
I would record your laugh.
I would ask you more questions about your life growing up.
I would tell you that I was proud to be your daughter.
I would thank you for always being there when I needed you.
I would hold on to you for just a little bit longer.

I didn't realize today is the anniversary of your fathers death. It was a beautiful and poignant short but sweet post. I'm glad now that I chose today to open your daddy's favorite sparkle - the Pierre Jourdan. Thank youReplyDelete
I find it hard to believe it is 10 years since my father's murder. We are opening his wine tonight, and you are opening his sparkle, what a celebration in his honor. Thank you.ReplyDelete
And I would thank him for YOU!ReplyDelete
You could not have written a more perfect tribute.
Thank you Mitch. That means a lot. Hugs to you and Jerry. xoxReplyDelete
Thanks Tim. I am hoping my father helps me win the lottery just as your Dad is helping the Packers! ;~)ReplyDelete

So that's where you got your sense of humor from. It shows.ReplyDelete
As I have only recently met you this is new to me about your father. What a wonderful tribute to someone whose love was brutally, prematurely taken away from you. Have a day of good memories. :)ReplyDelete
What a lovely post, it brought tears to my eyes and of course made me think of those I have lost over the years. Thanks for sharing...ReplyDelete
That was so touching and beautiful. It made me cry! I'm sorry you are missing your Dad. What a wonderful tribute to a lovely man.ReplyDelete
Beautiful, sad, inspiring. You are amazing. I'm glad you have such warm memories of your father but sorry for the time which was prematurely taken away. I'm sure he would be very proud of the woman you are. Hugs to you my Nubian Queen!ReplyDelete
