Dec. 7, 2013 – A Walk To Remember

Although today was my day off and I finally got to enjoy our wintry weather, I have worked very hard.

I have worked hard to make sure this day is exactly right. Perfect, if you will.

See, today is one of those days that you never forget. The moment the clock strikes midnight, it settles over your mind. This presence doesn’t just linger around, but it gets comfortable. It fluffs up the pillows, shakes out the covers, and leans back to witness every part of the next twenty-four hours. And although, I want to fast forward the day, because there are other days, I would rather remember…

I just can’t.

I find myself not running away or speeding through it, but settling down too. Fluffing my pillows, kicking my feet up, and just enjoying my time with it.

So, I can remember.

And remember well, as I celebrate my wonderful treasures, and uplift them with great honor.

I thought of a million ways to get this right, but in the end. I made a video.

I hope you enjoy my day, and my walk. I hope you see the beauty in how it is lived and presented.

My Dad died while I was blogging and it means the world to me that this blog holds what was in my heart that day (and continues to). I don’t ever want to forget them and I am so grateful to WordPress for this means to journal and share – the good stuff and the tough stuff.

God Bless you all for watching.

We are having a bit of winter here in Texas…..more on that later.

  1. That is a beautiful tribute to your dad. The snow freezing signs of Autumn just looks magical. My thoughts and prayers to your dad. I bet he is smiling in heaven knowing you created this wonderful post for him.

  2. Angelia, before I left a comment here, I went back and read your post in 2009 about your father. What a beautiful post. It brought tears to my eyes. And I know how you feel because November marked a year since my mother passed away and like you, it was in my mind and heart all day.

    What a beautiful video clip! And yes, I thoroughly enjoyed your walk. Lovely photographs!

    And it’s ironic because it just started snowing here in Philadelphia as I was leaving this comment, so I will be heading out soon to take a walk as well.

    Enjoy your day, my friend!

  5. It is so amazing to see the beautiful work you do! You can’t see how far you have come or how skilled you are now. For me,looking from the outside, you impress me every time I visit your blog. Peggy and I talk of you often. Her time with you in Dallas will always be very special. Our home is your home. Visit anytime. Dwight
