It has been a month. And in that month, there hasn't been an hour passed that I haven't thought of you. There have been so many times where I have the urge to go grab my cell phone to tell you something! I then smile and realize you already know. I sometimes wake up out of a deep slumber and think you're there. Maybe you are? It is the craziest, coolest thing. I like to think that you are there, anyway. I have many dreams with you in them. I can't really remember them, but I wake up knowing we had a good time together while I was asleep :)
Yesterday, I was driving in the early evening and looked up at the sky. Tears started streaming down my face. I can't explain it. I was just overcome with the beauty of it. I swear since you've been gone, the sunsets, weather, and winds have been more beautiful, stronger, and severe. I just know it's your big presence up there! I went from a few tears to a big smile thinking about you.
You are all around me all the time, I can feel it. I have always felt closest to God while in nature. Seeing the beauty of it. Now, not only do I feel close to God when I see these beautiful skies, I feel close to you. And I love that.
This has always been one of my favorite Zac Brown Band songs, and now it holds even more meaning. I would say, dear dad, you definitely enjoyed the ride.
This is for you! Enjoy :)
