I have just finished reading the most.......I don't have words here, folks - the most beautiful post I have ever read on someones blog.
Robin, your entry about your precious Father has changed me......changed how I looked at my own dad. It wasn't always good, but you know what? I will be forever grateful to God for giving me the man He did that was my Father. (he died 9 years ago)
Someday I may just do a post of my own about him.......

I came here to thank you for your comment, and THIS is what I find????

I'm touched...and moved to tears. Maybe because for whatever reason I find myself emotional today. My birthday is this week, and although Daddy couldn't tell me "Happy Birthday" last year, this will be the first I celebrate without him.

I wanna respond some more to you...but my kids are home, there's a million things to do, and parking myself blogging isn't high on the list. Suffice it to say, I had to look for the positive things my dad offered in his parenting. I'll save the details for an email, but I want you to know, IF you look for the good things, they're there.

When Tad (my husband) sent out an email to friends to let them know about Daddy's death, he said, "Let's praise God for the fact [my dad] gave us Robin." Your dad gave us YOU :)!

More soon when I have time to process my thoughts...but thank you, Kristy, for these more-than-kind words. You have altered the course of my day.

What a joy to stumble into your sweet lovefest with Robin. I was touched by her post too. I just spent the weekend moving my father from the townhome he shared with his wife to a retirement home without her. He's still with us, but for how long? Times they are 'a changing. :~)
