cj Sez: Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there, and to those who can’t be at home with their family because they are serving our country in far-away places, my prayers go up for your safe return.
“On Christmas morning, I woke to the sound of music I remember hearing when I was little. Daddy was in the kitchen, listening to a radio station that played Swedish music. I slipped out of bed and peeked around the door. He began to sing in Swedish while he stirred a pot of oatmeal, then he twirled and danced a schottische around the kitchen. I was overflowing with happiness at the familiar sounds and sights. Watching Daddy dancing alone made me giggle out loud.
Merry Christmas, Daddy!” I responded happily.
I held tight to his neck and laughed while he sang, as we
spun around the kitchen floor. I smelled his spicy aftershave and rested my cheek
against the coarseness of a beard he could never completely shave off.
He's been gone for a lifetime, and I still miss him dearly.
