Remember when …
you’d buckle my church shoes for me?
you’d reach your hand to the back seat for low fives when I made a funny?
we made blueberry pancakes?
we played Scattergories? Watched Star Wars?
we sang Oh Come All Ye Faithful in the car in opera voices?
…and didn’t care that it was mid-March?
you shaved your mustache for the Y2K and I thought you looked like an alien?
you’d make me a turkey and cheese sandwich every single day for lunch?
you won the Chile cook-off that one year? You were such an underdog.
Remember how …
cold my hands felt in yours?
good mom’s cooking was?
terrible I was at driving your truck?
you taught me to ski?
… and all those state capitals?
… or is it capitols?
… and the difference between ROM and RAM
When my dad died one year ago, I looked to this day as a dark and distant threat. Now that it’s here, I’ve got a heavy heart and heavier tears, but I’m grateful for all our memories.
