I just wanted to share with you something very special.

My dad passed away many months ago. I miss him so much it hurts. He was an amazing person, filled with love and happiness, always sharing it with everyone. And in his passing, he’s still doing great things…as you know.

I just wanted to share with you that I have his swing in my yard, on a hill, overlooking a lake with an amazing view of the beautiful sky. On each side of the swing we planted some small gardenia bushes, my favorite.

Well, today my dad came home and today my gardenia bloomed it’s very first flower!! One on each bush!!! He’s home!! He’s really home!! You are special to me and my dad. I wanted to share this with you. Thank you.
