HELD HANDS

 

I AM NOT A TOUCHY FEELY KIND OF A PERSON BUT REALLY I AM.

IT WAS SOMETHING ABOUT YOU HOLDING MY HAND SUNDAY BEFORE LAST AND NOW I KNOW.

YOU KNOW I DIDN’T KNOW MY BUDDY WENT TO JOIN THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE.

NOW, I AM HERE THINKING JUST WHAT COULD I PEN TO STRENGTHEN YOU, TO ELEVATE YOU, TO ENCOURAGE YOU AND TO LET YOU KNOW THAT WE ARE HERE WITH AND FOR YOU DURING THIS HARD TIME.

WELL, I WAS LEAD HERE.

YOU THANKED YOUR DADDY IN THE BEST WAY YOU KNEW HOW.

YOU SERVED HIM.

YOU CATERED TO HIM.

YOU CHAUFFERED HIM.

YOU HELD HIM RESPONSIBLE AND ACCOUNTABLE.

YOU UNCONDITIONALLY LOVED HIM.

BUT ABOVE ALL, YOU SHARED HIM WITH US.

HERE THNKING ABOUT THE MAN WHO COOKED AND WHAT IT ALL ENTAIL TO BE A GOURMET CHEF AND CHIEF CULINARIAN SUCH AS HE AND ALL I CAN SAY IS; AS A HUNTER HE FIRST CHOSE TO GO HUNTING AND ONCE HE MADE THAT DECISION; HE GATHERED NEEDED ITEMS TO MAKE HIS TRIP WORTH HIS WHILE AND WAS SURE TO BRING SOMETHING BACK BUT THAT ISN’T IT. HE GOT IN THE KITCHEN AND HE SHOOK, HE SPRINKLED, HE BAKED, HE BRAISED, HE BBQ’D, HE SAUTEED, HE MARINATED AND HE KNEADED AND HE DID IT ALL WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN MIND ALONG WITH MUCH LOVE.

YOU DID AN EXCEPTIONAL JOB IN RAISING HIM AFTER RETIREMENT. YOU THOUGHT YOU WERE CLOSING ONE DOOR AND GOD HAD YOU TO KICK DOWN ANOTHER DOOR AND THAT WAS TO BE YOUR DAD’S LOVING, COMPASSIONATE AND DEVOTED CAREGIVER UNTIL HE SAID, I NEED MY REAL REST AND THAT IS WITH MY BOO AND I CAN HEAR HER AS LOUD AS EVER SAYING WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG!!!
