Written four years ago but still applies today.
Lulu spilled her drink on the way to school today. By instinct I said “no harm done, could have been worse” then I got all sentimental and tearful and could not understand why. Finally figured out it is because I miss my daddy! It is exactly what he would have said. He was the most positive person I ever knew. Always a smile and a kind word for everyone he encountered. I wish I could be more like him. September is rough – both parents birthdays would have been this month 9/1 and 9/11. So many memories keep flooding in.
