Get it, LOL!!!
Sorry I wasn't around yesterday, I had to prep for my colonoscopy & well let's just say that I spent more time in the powder room than I did in any other room in my home last night!
TMI I know but it's necessary...you see, I lost my father to colon cancer. He was only 47 years old, the only one of his grand babies that remembers him is our Nikky. Billy was only a little guy, just three years old. They have missed out on having a Papa, not just any old Papa, but a Papa that would have been there every step of the way with them. Crying (he was sappy LOL) & snapping prom pics, cheering when Nikky was accepted at UMASS, whooping it up at Thanksgiving Day football games, probably would have been here the day our son walked out the door and down the driveway with the USMC Recruiter, standing tall and proud watching his grandson graduate Marine Boot. I know that he would have wrestled Mr. P for the chance at escorting Nikky on her wedding day, she was his first, his baby "Tricky-Nikky", his pride & joy :)
So when the day comes that my two beautiful babies decide to make me a grandparent I want to be there to witness everything, every step, every breath, every tear, every birthday, every ballet recital, every baseball or football game....EVERYTHING.....That's why I get these done ~ like it our not JUST BIT THE BULLET and GET IT DONE!!
After all of these years with my dad being gone I still miss him & think about him every day. There have been so many things that I have wanted and needed to tell him.
I love & miss you dad!
Count my blessings...
