    1. So sweet Bron! Thank you so much! I'm sad occasionally. My dad was always there to pick up the phone and answer with joy, and that is a lost treasure! I do treasure the photo with him gently holding one of my hands. xo

  4. Really beautiful...my Father died when I was three, so I never celebrated Father's Day until I had children. It's nice to see my girls get that time. I do miss my Dad :)) But, I know he's around as is yours :)) xox

    1. Timbarika, I was not aware of the loss of your father at such an early age. And, I am grateful that you are able to celebrate with your girls and their father (your husband). How beautiful! They are the fortunate ones, because your heart and loss brings deeper meaning to the day, in turn, bringing a more sincere celebration! Thank you for sharing! xox

  5. Oh Shelly,
    Somehow I just found this post. I am so very sorry for your loss of your dad. What a lovely photo of the two of you. Obviously he was so proud of you and you delighted in being together. There is something special about feeling so safe in a dad's arms as a little girl. I do, deeply, understand your loss.....
    I lost my own dad to cancer 3 years ago and life is forever changed. We both posted similar tributes to these wonderful dads.
    Thinking of you, my friend, and thanks for sharing this lovely tribute.
    xo, Heather

    1. Heather, it appears that life is continually producing areas of our lives, or feelings we are dealing with, in which we are very connected. I am so sorry for your loss,too. It's actually been since 2004 when my dad past with a long suffering of leukemia. For my siblings and I, it has never subsided in being painful. Even though my dad had his demons to fight, he was an incredible man. We were all very lost when he passed, and finding our way has been difficult. My dad had a way of making holidays, and family get-togethers, full of extra specialness. That light, twinkle, dimmed the day he died. So, with all that being said, I thank you for reaching out to me, and pray that I have been able to touch you the same! xo
