It's Father's Day. It's my first one without you. There is no card this year. I loved picking them out for you. I would read through each one until I found the one that truthfully expressed my heart. It was important, for words of the heart spoke to you as they do to me. You often mentioned how perfect the cards were. I loved that.
I miss you terribly. I know you are where you were meant to be. I know you are finally fulfilled, completely and totally fulfilled. That comforts me today. I'm trusting that somehow you might see this letter. I've asked God to give you a hug from me today and tell you that I love you.. I asked Him to tell you Happy Father's Day for me..
I wish I could see where you are. I wish I could see heaven. I know it's a beautiful place. I wish I had a snapshot of you there. Sometimes I wonder if you can see me. I think of you all the time. Sometimes it hurts too much to think about you being gone. The finality of it is hard for the mind to grasp. I try to imagine you where you are. It's the only thing that brings me comfort. I heard a teaching on heaven the other day and I thought of you. It was a happy/sad moment. I was sad to be reminded that you weren't with me, but happy at the thought of you waiting there for me.
Sometimes I wish I could have one more conversation. The other night I dreamed I was given another chance to talk to you. I believe God will give you the messages I ask Him to deliver.
When I think of one word to describe you, Daddy, I think of the word, "champion". Mom spoke that over you the day you met Jesus face to face. It fits you perfectly. You are the champion of my heart. I am still your girl.
I always will be......
Happy Father's Day!
I love you,
