Two months ago today we all lost you. We were forced to say goodbye to an incredible man who was compassionate, hardworking, loyal and kind. I lost my father, first protector, first knight in shining armor, and as an adult someone who became one of my best friends. I honored today by working hard around the house... Moving rocks and putting in a new patio in the backyard... Then relaxing in pool... Exactly what I thought you'd do. In my several trips to "Lowell's" as you'd call it... Lowe's to the rest of us... I thought about you and smiled as I thought of you laughing at me covered in sweat and lifting 12" pavers by myself... I can hear you telling me to work smarter... Not harder and flirt with the lawn and garden boys to get them to do my lifting for me. Which would work except you always told me there wasn't any thing these boys could do that I can't.... And I have to prove it!
I keep thinking about your quest to better yourself and your dictionary project. You'd find a new word each week know the definition and use it in a sentence until you knew it. I'd say a word that u didn't know and you'd make me define it and use it in a sentence.. The next day, I'd hear you say it... Lol! God, I love you.
There's a hole in my heart no one can fill but you and you're always on my mind!
Loving you with all my heart,
Your baby girl
