My adorable Dad passed away last weekend. As happens so many times in my everyday life, I am so very grateful to be guided by my intuition. That morning was no different. During my morning meditations, I heard repeatedly “call your Dad, call your Dad”.
After meditation time, I called and spoke to my step-mom and she said that Dad wasn’t feeling well. He had been suffering with a bad headache since the prior day. We chatted for about 30-minutes and then she held the phone aside and asked if Dad wanted to talk to me. He said something in the background that I couldn’t make out but she said that he wasn’t up to chatting. We talked for awhile longer and I told her that I would call him back on Father’s Day. Before she hung up, I asked her to tell him I loved him. She paused for a moment and said “Tiffany wants to tell you she loves you.” Again, I couldn’t make out his response but he did get the message.
Less than 12 hours later he had passed.
As I reflect back on that day and that conversation, I am so very blessed that I was able to let my Dad know I loved him. Anytime I spoke with him, we always ended our conversation with our “I love you’s” and even though I didn’t get the chance to whisper it directly in his ear that day, I am calm in my knowing that he knew he was loved by me. And I felt the same from him.
As I sit here today on Father’s Day 2015 I am looking at the card that was addressed and stamped and ready to send to him this last week. I’m glad that I was waiting until Monday to mail it because now I have a special memory to tuck away in my drawer that I will pull out each Father’s Day to remind me of the joy he brought to my life.
Thank you for choosing to be my Dad and for blessing this Earth with your presence for 93 years.
