Such a silly...meaningless thing...and yet it was ours. Our fun continual commentary on the weather. You always asked about our Nashville weather because you said that's what you could look forward to in 1-2 days. It almost always held true.
This morning when I checked our weather I saw that our high temp is predicted to be 85 today! Much warmer than it has been...and very welcomed! I knew immediately that you would love this information as it meant you would have sunny, warmer weather approaching as well. Your high today is predicted to be 68 degrees.
I picked up the phone to call you...and then I remembered.
You died 17 days ago.
I can't call you anymore. Immediately the tears came.
So this is grief.
I miss you, Dad. There is a hole in my heart that was your space and it will never be filled again.

God blessed me by choosing YOU to be my father, my dad, my daddy. I am forever grateful.
I love you and will miss you all the days of my life.
