This was Christmas two years ago. Dad was feeling good during that time. He was so proud of cooking this cobbler with his cast iron. This how I see him – smiling, that twinkle in his eyes and a hint of ornery to his spirit. Recently, Mom let us go through Dad’s things. I wantedContinue reading “Just One More”
The days hit hard and heavy, and the memories come on strong. God took you before I was ready, as if I could ever prepare for you being gone. Under your protection, I could always tell the truth.
