My Daddy’s Angel

Guardian Angel

Cascading your love and light

Send out your legions to

bring peace and joy

everywhere

Today was My Daddy’s birthday, and he would have been 78.  It felt strange not to be able to call him and gush birthday greetings, telling him all the reasons I love him. While I was so very grateful for all our chats and for the chance to get to know him and feel closer, I can’t help but to have wanted more time with him.  Last year, I sent this angel to him to guard over him while he was at the nursing home, guardian angels being our thing.  I sent her two  day mail so he would have some holiday cheer for the Christmas season, but no one even took her out of the box for two weeks.  Disappointment couldn’t even be a strong enough word for how it felt when he had to remain in a sterile white room with no holiday cheer.  Finally, my brother found it and set her up on his table ; but alas, not in all her magnificence.  Now she graces our tree with her elegance and protection.

This year, since I couldn’t be with him, I sat under the guardian glow of our angel, reminiscing on our fond memories of this past year, writing small clips down so as not to forget them…and calling on the legions to bring Peace and Joy to our world for this New Year 2016.  In loving memory, rest in peace my daddy, and keep watching over me.

Love you so much, Ree

  1. Your post was very touching. Yesterday (Dec 28) was my dad’s birthday and, even though he died in a car accident almost 60 years ago, he still is often in my thoughts. In addition, my 13-day-old grandson died in my arms three years ago. The following Christmas I bought a baby angel ornament for our tree in remembrance of Benjamin. It has been a meaningful memento for him just as your guardian angel is a memento of your dad’s presence in your life. Blessed Christmas to you.

    • It’s so difficult to lose family, especially around the holidays. December 28th, we lost another member of our family as well. Hugs to you. I’m so glad my post found its way to you and that we could chat about how much these people mean to us, even after all these years. Thank you for sharing, and may the New Year bring you peace and joy. ~ Marie
