Ten Years Ago, I Said “Good-Bye”

Okay, so this should have been posted on May 21 or May 22, but I got busy and never made a post. I apologize for that. Anyway, without further ado here’s my post.

Ten years ago, I said “good-bye” to Daddy. I stood at his casket adorned in the yellow roses we had purchased and a ribbon had just been handed to me by one of the funeral workers. On the blue ribbon in gold glittering letters was the word “Daddy.” I never could, nor probably ever will, be able to call him “Dad.” I had buried my head into my cousin’s wife’s arm and just sobbed. I didn’t want to say “good-bye.” It sort of brought some closure to everything that had transpired over the course of a week, but it also seemed surreal.

Now, 10 years later and nearly Memorial Day in the USA, I am probably finally able to close all this. I will not stop talking or bragging about him, but I think it’s finally time to move on and say “good-bye” or at least “see you when next we meet.”

Well, that’s all for this time. I’ll do my best to write again soon, but I make you no promises. I hope this was well worth the wait!

Love and prayers, as always! ❤


About Christy

I enjoy: my family, my faith life, photography, drawing; writing, working on cars, basketball, football, and baseball. These are just a few of the many things I like...you'll just have to read my blog to know me better to know more of them. Other things you may not catch on that I enjoy are: cats, angels, ballroom dancing, Christian music, camping (being one with nature and all of God's creations), traveling, cherry and apple blossoms, and the colors blue (in all shades), white, black, dark purple, and SOME shades of pink. (Rainbows are cool, too. And I'm NOT a lesbian! Although, I'm friends with some gays and lesbians as well as a few transgenders.) I am Roman Catholic. I graduated from Johnson County Community College, where I majored in Animation in hopes of fulfilling my dreams of being a computer generated animation movie maker. I also have a degree in Corporate Communication from Avila University. I'm currently employed at Nestle Toll House/Haagen-Dazs (at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park), I own my own business -- C & S Productions, L.L.C. (check it out at http://www.csproductionsllc.com), and am single. My favorite time of year is Winter and the Christmas season! It's just so...well, I can't put it into words. ^_^ Lastly, I am 36 years young!
