Still Daddy's Little Girl

Visions of Dad

Oh how I loved Saturday mornings
and breakfast with my dad
Weekends spent with cousins
pajamas made of his old t shirts
The smell of his old spice aftershave 
The sight of him in his flight suit
The smell of his well oiled boots
Long drives to the airport
to pick him up late into night
Mornings spent playing at the air base
A quiet moment of him
dancing with my mother
An afternoon nap on the couch
His infectious laugh
All memories from my childhood past
I wish we had more time
I wish I had more memories
I wish I still had.....Him

oh...that's beautiful.  He sounds like a great Dad. I wish we could keep our loved ones with us forever.  We do in our memories...I've been writing about folks in my life that are no longer here...but just writing about the way they were in life makes me feel really good....You have a great journal....Sandi

I CAN TELL YOU WERE "DADDY'S GIRL". NOTHING ELSE EVER TAKES THE PLACE OF THAT IN YOUR LIFE, DOES IT? I KNOW ALL TOO WELL ABOUT THAT.
YOU DO SUCH A GOOD JOB ON THIS JOURNAL. ITS NICE TO REMINISCE ABOUT THINGS THAT YOU MAKE AS YOUR SUBJECT FOR THE DAY. ALL OF THEM SEEM TO HIT HOME WITH ME SO MUCH. AS A MATTER OF FACT, YOU INSPIRE ME ON WHAT TO WRITE ABOUT, BUT I DONT WANNA COPY (SO  I DONT). LOL!!
BUT, THAT ISNT A BAD THING. I GET A GOOD FEELING FROM READING YOUR ENTRIES BECAUSE THEY ARE SO CLOSE TO HOW I FEEL ABOUT THINGS, ONLY YOU DO A BETTER JOB AT WRITING ABOUT IT. LOL!!
