old country house blog


In a few hours…
My little family of five will board an airplane
and fly to my Fathers’ home, 
the town where I rode bikes and horses and went to high school….
and got married…
…and we will join
All of our family and friends …
Say Goodbye
to My Dad.

I am 100% certain that a HUGE part of the strength I feel, 
…the ability I have to put one foot, right in front of the other…
has come from you…
…my friends,
many…no, most of whom I have never met, 
but whose hearts have lept across the pages and embraced 
held me up…
with your words of encouragement and strength, 
compassion and understanding 
and generous Love.
I will not be posting for a few days.
But I will be back next week..and we can pick up where we left off…
forever changed…
From the bottom of my heart…
Thank You

I am agree with Rochelle that you have been blessed to have a lovely relationship with your father and I am hoping that I have that kind of relationship with my father too.
