Letter to my Dad

Hey, Blossoms! Today I am going to open up about a subject that gets me every time. 

To be honest, the closest people to me know how much this subject hits that spot in my heart.

I wanted to write a letter to my Dad because today marks 14 years of his passing.

If you read my Birthday Post (here), you would know I turned 24 this year.

Yes, I lost my father when I was just 10 years old.

 

Dear Daddy,
I want to first start off by saying that what ever you went through in your life that made you become an Angel to all of us I forgive you. There are times when I walk past your photo I stop to say “why? why did you go? why did you leave us? couldn’t you have fought harder?” but I had to realize you are in a much better place. I know that where I am in my life today is because you helped guide me there, you became my guardian angel. I know growing up I longed to just to say “Daddy” and have you respond, but no voice was ever there. I remember when Uncle John asked me if I was jealous of Alysha I said yes because she has her mom and father with her at all times. I just wanted that. I craved that. Heck, I still do. I am so afraid of marriage because I do not want to lose your last name. I do not want that disconnection to stop me from being called a MOORE. Daddy, I asked Auntie that for my next birthday she turned all the tapes from my childhood into DVDs so I can hear your voice again, so I can watch you when I need a good laugh. I promise you, you are missed daily! Because of you, we are all who we are today, thank you.
Love Peanut!

    Dear Alyssa,
    I am truly so sorry that you lost your father and at such a very young age. I know he is looking down at you and so proud of the amazing young woman you are. You are so strong and so beautiful inside and out.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your loss even after all these years. The loss of a loved one never goes away but to live in a way that honours them is a good way to pay tribute.

    Girl I know the struggles that come along with loosing your dad! My dad passed almost 17 years ago and I still to this day miss him every day. It’s been so hard going through life and him missing out on my college graduation, getting married and most of my kids. But, you’re right, they’re always with us and guiding us along the way.
