Wisdom from my Pa

My Pa always had these wonderful little pearls of wisdom. Today I remembered this one. I think of him everyday so this day to celebrate Fathers is just another day for me. Till we meet again Pa, but till then I’ll meet you in my heart ❤️ 

Also I have a page where I’ve shared about him. https://tellmeaboutit.co/my-dad-dan-pa/

He’s gone fishin’

I’m going fishin’ there is nothing you can do
I’m going fishin’ in a day or two
Micki you can try to please them
Ain’t nothing you can do
but…
Maybe you should join me
Cause I’m going fishin’
I’ll be waiting for you

P.S. Thinking about my Pa.

You are ever gentle on my mind

I know you’re waiting

on the back roads

by the rivers

of my memories

ever smiling

ever gentle

on my mind

Anything but Ephemera

anythingbutephemera

Your words I pour over them
I think of how you felt with pen
in hand as tears dropped
On these pages I now pour
This ones for you wherever you are
Your words are anything but Ephemera
They are pressed between the pages of my heart
I miss you Pa

 

Happy Birthday Pa

I’ve been working on restoring this photo of my Pa.
I love this photo of him. I thought since today is his birthday, Jan. 2,
it is a perfect day to share!

My Pa Dan, 1936

Happy Birthday in heaven Pa.

My Auntie sent me this photo below.
The image is not as clear but back then there weren’t a lot of photos
so I cherish these that I have!

Hard to tell if I did a good job here or not but at least I got rid of the cracked spots.

Papa will I perish?

papawillIperish

Papa will I perish?
because if feels like it and I can’t bare the fire…

“Micki let me tell you something,
I can sure tell you

what NOT to do!
Yes the fire will burn you, Yes it will hurt,
Yes there will be days you think you can’t take it
But don’t run, or jump because soon relief will come
See Micki life [that fire], it burns the fake right out of you
It refines you like the finest gold
if you stay and surrender to your greatest fear
it is in that surrender…my blue eyed Micki…you will feel the closest to God. “

Good I remember when you burned Papa I remember it so well. 
I sure miss you! 

Chantilly Grace

Chantillygrace - 1 (1)

My Pa said,  “She had Chantilly Grace,” and I always wondered too myself…wasn’t that lace?
Oh but he said, “It’s so much finer than that, she has the kind of grace that when she left the room she took my heart with her.” Oh I said, “Pa I want that kind of grace one day,”  and he said. “You’ve already got it, the day I first held you in my arms, I knew my heart would break a thousand times watching you go, now straighten up an act like it.” I smile just thinking of that day! I still don’t know what he meant but he always made it sound so pretty and I loved that about him.
