No Reply from Heaven

  I received a response yesterday to my post “Tears in the Closet”.   My friend reminded me of the “extreme separation”, which are the words...

Dear Dad,

Thursday, June 30, 2011
I have been wanting to have all of the kids write down their favorite memories with their dad, things that they loved about him, or things that they miss about him.  I have not found the right timing yet, but Mia just did it on her own and brought me to sobbing tears.  She started a blog of her own this week and sent me a text this morning that I should read her blog she posted last night.  She is in Michigan helping my sisters pack my parents for their move back to Mississippi.  She warned me in the text that I may cry.  I was in Target when I received the text, but went ahead and clicked the link to get a quick glance of the topic about which she wrote.  After reading the title, "Dear Dad,", I immediately closed the screen and fought the tears.  I just sat down alone in my bedroom and read it.  What a sweetheart.  It felt so good to look through a window into her heart and read her thoughts about missing her Dad.  The tears poured as I read all of her sweet recollections of her Dad.  I love you, Mia and I miss all of those things about your Dad too.  You were our first baby and we were, and I am, so proud of you, and , as your Dad would say, proud of what God is doing in you and through you.  www.miabarranco.tumblr.com

I just read Mia's post and it is so precious. What wonderful children you and Michael have raised with God's blessings. I was truly blessed by her post and wish I could give her a big hug. I know you and her Dad are very, very proud.
