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.
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.
