One Thousand Gifts (continued)

"As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him" (Psalm 103:13).

It's hard to believe that it has been 9 years already since we had to say good-bye to our dear dad.  I am so thankful for the many years that I had the privilege of calling him my dad.  I am also so thankful for the many fond memories of him and the love that he constantly showed to his children.  He never held back showing his affection to us, and to our mom, and he always said how proud he was of all of us.  I look forward to the day that we will be reunited and I know that he'll be waiting, as he always was, for a kiss on his chubby cheeks!

Continuing to give thanks...
