I have to say I don’t look forward to Father’s Day because it makes me miss my own Daddy so much. He went to his Forever Home with Jesus in 2008.
I miss him like crazy!
I was such a big ole Daddy’s Girl!
Come to think of it- I am still a big ole Daddy’s Girl!
My daddy was so funny and creative and boy he was a storyteller. I could listen to his stories all day long. We were so very close and spoke on the phone daily if not multiple times a day.
My daddy was a music lover. All types of music he loved. That is where I got my love for all music too. He was also a musician, he played a mean cornet – similar to the trumpet. He played in a band like the Blues Brothers before the popular movie was even around.
One of his all time favorite songs was Simon & Garfunkel’s – Bridge Over Troubled Water.
He would play it and sing along.
I loved to jam out with him to this song!
I have a hard time hearing it now without crying since it was played at his funeral and just makes me miss him too much.
I did not know that in this song the duo is singing about a father guiding his offspring through the opening steps of life, explaining that any obstacles they face will be dealt with together.
So today- in honor of All Father’s.
Past, Present & Future; this is a perfect Father’s Day Song.
Actually it’s a perfect any day song when you look at it from our Heavenly Father’s perspective to us.
I love at 3:20 in the video-
Sail On Silver Girl!
I always think of my daddy-well now both my daddy’s in Heaven, singing this over me.
Happy Father’s Day!
