God who cares for those I love~

It was a hard Sunday at our house today for my Dad~ He was invited for lunch, came an hour late, didn't eat, kind of out of sorts, and dosed on and off sitting in the porch as we watched the Ryder Cup on this gorgeous Minnesota afternoon. Dad commented on the hummers being gone and the glorious colors of the trees outside. Foremost on his mind was ordering Cooper his 2nd birthday gift. Then asked if he could lay down and rest for a while. I tucked him in on the couch in the living room and he slept for a good hour~ We sat a bit longer and when it looked like he was ready to head home, I asked if we could drive him and he said "I think that would be a good idea." Off we went, my sweetie and Dad in one car and myself in another.  Good time for "boy talk".  I sense that my sweet Dad has slowed down and that his days are hard on him, his body is tired.  He talks of working on getting his "energy back up" and remains as ever positive and optimistic~  I know that our journey together is going to end, there will be no more days together~ and despite knowing this, as Dad would say is "the ongoing process of life" I am not ready.  But, when you are sweet Papa, I will find a way to be too, and Mom will be there waiting for you. I love you Daddy~  Pooh
