Is He Really Here With Us?

My father used to spend every morning in Mickey D's at the local Wally World drinking coffee, eating breakfast and talking to his old cronies. One lady will soon be 91. She and Dad were very close.

A few weeks ago I took a day off work for personal reasons. I went into Wally World to buy things needed for our house remodeling and saw this sweet 90 year old lady sitting in her usual spot. I went over to her and gave her a big hug. I sat down in the chair next to her, and my fathers spirit must have been right there, because it filled me from the very bottom of my rump to the top of my head, pushing tears out along the way.

"We really miss your Dad, Billie. We talk about him every day."

"I know, and he is here with you every day."

"I know that." She said.

We finished up a bit of small talk and I excused myself and went on to gather up my purchases. I held back the tears as I ventured through the store, although, some leaked out.

I had not cried over my fathers death for awhile. Now and then I hear a song and I get teary eyed.

I believe that when I cry the most is when he is closest to me. The days he spends in our home our whole family is usually teary eyed and missing him.

I love you and I miss you, Dad.

mzhunyhole, I know you do. You have so much love to give and no matter how long they are gone, we still miss them very much.

womenlooking4fun, I have always believed that those who have passed on stay with us, but sometimes people look at me like I have lost my mind. But it's not what they think, but what I feel that matters. *hugs*
