Tim Babb’s March Blog Madness: Day 22
I don’t really have anything wacky to share this time. Today would have been my dad’s 76th birthday. (He passed away in 2007). I am, of course, sad that he’s gone but I do realize that I’m lucky.
I’m lucky that I didn’t have one of those estranged relationships with my dad. We had great times. He is partly the reason (or partly to blame) for my sense of humor. I know he went to his final resting place knowing that I loved him and I know he loved me. He was always a part of my life. He got to meet my wife before he died.
But on days like today, I can’t help but be a little sad that I can’t call him up or drop by and say hello. So I’m posting this blog about him. I don’t know if it accomplishes anything (Do they have internet access in heaven? If not, is it TRULY heaven?). I just know it makes me feel good in an odd way to miss my dad. Okay…eyes are watering…gotta get back to telling jokes about Disneyland or something.
…oh by the way…If you still can, go call your dad…and your mom.
