From Air Force days
to a forever blind date
Six decades of sharing love
to his lovely soul mate
He misses her now
but has managed along
with support of three daughters
He’s where he belongs
His memory entertains
from WWII days
amazing those who listen
Is 93 his true age?
He’s able to witness
a senior graduation
He’s so proud of our son
His face wears true elation
Then one incident
shakes up our world
The worst of thoughts
in my mind unfurl
But with God’s blessing
and His ideal timing
this story ends happily
Our sun remains shining

So beautiful my friend. I am so happy for you all that your Dad is well and your day went so beautifully. We had a lovely Father’s Day as well, the kids and Grandkidlets were here and fun was had by all.
The weirdest thing happened to me. I did up a Father’s Day post and posted it and it literally disappeared. I can’t even find it in my drafts. Strange~ Things that make you go hmmmmm. 🙂 Oh well. I always think maybe it just wasn’t meant to be. Happy Monday my friend. Hugs, Renee ♥
Thanks, Renee! Glad you had a great celebration, too, but that is strange about your disappearing post…well, maybe it wasn’t meant to be or you could possibly edit it for another day…Happy Wednesday and lots of hugs to you! xo
