I Wish I Didn’t Have To Wish

I Wish I Didn’t Have To Wish


It’s days like today I wish I was a believer. I wish I could take comfort that a place like heaven did exist. Most of all I wish I didn’t have to wish at all. My father would still be here and I wouldn’t have to miss him. I would have had someone cheering along side me when the Giants won the world series. So many more good memories would have been made to ease the pain of the bad ones.

Unfortunately, that’s not how life works. All I have left is memories of the past. I’m hoping that they never fade. That twenty years from now I can take comfort in hearing his laughter when reminiscing on the good times.

I miss my dad like crazy.

Best Birthday Present Ever

This morning my son woke me up to trek me that my birthday was Saturday. Not realizing that today WAS Saturday. When my wife asked him what he got me for my birthday he shrugged his shoulders and said,  “I love my dad forever.”

In that moment I realized two things, I could never appreciate anything more than his love and that no matter what I do in this world I’ve already done something significant with myself in just being a father.

Even though I’m going to work on my birthday, this is already the best birthday ever! Hope everyone has a great day!
