Today is a day for remembering loved ones who have passed away.
Remembering the joyful times, the positive times what made these souls special.
Today I will be remembering.
As I cook and knit and read and craft, I will be thinking of those special ones.
Dad, Mary, Grandma Beulah, Grandmother Clara, Uncle Kenny, and even Chutney and Lancer and Tinker.
A memory, a dream. After my Dad died I had a dream of him.
We were in an airport, it was quite warm but Dad was wearing my favorite Marlboro man jacket, My feet hurt, I was in old tennis shoes(blue chucks), I was searching, frantic, afraid I'd miss my flight. I saw my Dad and I ran to him to give him a hug and he hugged me back and I could smell his special Dad smell. He said to me, "it's okay, I'm alright." He told me goodbye and I got on my plane.
I rarely fly.
I don't wear chucks anymore.
I could smell him.
I could feel his hug and the leather of the jacket.
It was so very Real.
If you want to see how others are honoring their family go to Dia de Bloglandia to start your adventure.
The card above is my representation of a candy skull.
I really wanted to join in on the festivities of Dia de Bloglandia but couldn't get a post ready in time.
Take time today to remember.
