Dear Dad - A Letter, One Year Later


  1. Oh Kaitlin,
    If this didn't make me well up - what would?

    Wow! What a beautiful letter.
    I can so relate on many counts. The paragraph where you wonder if he was holding out on any advice still yet to be shared. ohh, that got me... because I wonder the same thing about my own dad.
    I was over at my mom's today and looking long at a family photo - mostly of my dad - he is missing now in presence but EVERYWHERE in all (nine)of us kids...

    Some days the question of WHY? begs hard to be answered... I hate that I (still) don't "get it"... but one day...I will.

    ((HUGS)) to you and your family today - especially today.

  2. What a beautiful way to pour out your feelings. I haven't had to deal with this yet but your letter made me teary, thinking on the day that is coming. What do people who don't know the Lord do? How do they handle the grief without the Hope? I pray for you a beautiful, wrapped in His arms, full of His presence sort of day..

    Blessings, Debbie

  3. This is such a sweet letter, Kaitlin. It's wonderful that you can look back and have no regrets. How important to cherish the time we have with loved ones...

  4. Special letter to your Dad. From knowing him just a bit, I see where he has left you a lovely legacy in the woman you've become. Even though Joe never met him, he and the girls will benefit greatly from what Frank left in you.

  5. That is beautiful. As the years continue on, you will start realizing how much of your dad is carried over to your personality and that as mysterious as it is to us now, he really is still with you, just hidden by God and carrying on. Even Jesus cried when Lazarus died, and He knew he was going to raise him!


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! ♥
