Flying to Daddy



Sunday, August 14th, 2011, 9:01 PM

It’s approaching late evening on this Sunday night. My stomach is extremely queasy as I try to mentally prepare myself for what I’m about to see/face. I take a peek out the window to my right and catch a glimpse of the tops of white, billowy clouds that only those at ‘home’ can see from below. For a brief moment, I feel lucky and blessed to capture such an incredible view.

As I travel home to see my father for the very last time, thoughts tumble and swirl through my weary mind. My tummy rumbles and I shiver in my seat, as I long for the solitude of my cozy little apartment and a hot cuppa to soothe one aching heart and soul. I want to climb into my big, lofty bed piled high with blankets, cover up my head and sleep until it feels safe to step out into the world once again.

  4. That was nice that two people have helped to finance your trip. Having a support system is so helpful in situations like this.

    Good luck to you girl. This is an important journey for you though of course not an easy one. Hope you have a trip that's safe and as pleasant as possible.

  11. I have been in the same place...seeking the solace and comfort of sleep and the forgetfulness it brings....calm to the mind, rest to the body.
    You are stronger and braver than you can ever know my friend.
    You have everything you need inside of you.....

    Much love~~♥
