I have a show and tell Zoom PLC mtg today with our brand new principal! Yikes. I won’t say what I first offer showing them, but there’s this book.
One day after my parents returned from one of their endless exotic vacations, my dad said, “I read this book on vacation. I really liked it. You should read it,” and handed me his book. At the time, I thought it was super cool, and I was excited to read it, so put it TBR bookcase. My dad is gone now.
I thought about the book soon after his death and searched for it one weekend. Tore my place up. I went through every corner of my house desperate to find the only book my dad gave me. It was gone.
I was heartbroken but vowed to buy a another copy and read it one day. My dad has been gone 10 years this Christmas Eve. I’ve since moved and one random day on my bookshelf is my dad’s book.
When I mention loss in my posts, it is always about my dad. He is my only true loss.
