Write for your life

This is the fifth post I’ve written this month, and that feels good! That feels like progress. Nothing has been taken away from me… I’ve been given a gift! I’ve been given time.

In Case I Forget...

In case I forget...  Remind me who you are.  You, and your love for me make me everything that I am.

I'm your dad.  I'm your husband... I gave you my all.  I don't mean to forget you.  Even if I don't know your name, or your face... My heart will always remember.
