I hugged my father TIGHT!!! Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…
Do NOT ask me “WHY,” folks. I do NOT know “WHY”. I do NOT even REALLY care “WHY,” but… “I HAD A DREAM,” folks. And my heart is smiling real, Real, REAL big. Right Here. RIGHT NOW!!! 🙂 Thank-You, Jesus.
I “think” I saw my brother, Bob (from behind)… hugging our father. And then my father looked at me from across the room with a big, Big, BIG toothless grin-missing just 1 of his front 2 teeth. (almost as if he were chuckling in his famous manner, “Hehehe”…) I was so, So, SO surprised to see my father there…at what I presumed to be a home I remember occupying in Fayette, OH. On George St. Yep, I was sure dumbfound. Ya see, my father, EVEN in the awareness of my dream, had already passed away. Nope, he should NOT have been there. SOOOooo…In my state of confusion (Jilligan)… (Pppsssttt…Yep, I even get my“SELF” LOST and confused in my own dreams) :/
I ran, COMPLETELY shocked and dumbfound, from the middle of the living room, around and behind a couch to hug him. And we held each other tightly for what seemed like forever. UNTIL…I awoke. Abruptly and well aware that I “GET” to go to work today. WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!
Hhhmmm…During our rather long and tight hug I, somehow, imagine that my father maintained that big-ole’ toothless grin…and I feel CERTAIN that he was chuckling ALL the way, hey!!! 🙂 “Hehehe…” (Pppsssttt…to the tune of “Jingle Bells”) :/
I LOVE YOU, DAD. ALWAYS & FOREVER…
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
P.H.P., folks. People Helping People…to survive “LIFE”.
Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!
ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.
