A True Blessing

Good morning Caleb, 

Today is going to be a good day, I can just feel it in my blood.  I have energy, my body feels good and I am ready to get up and take this day on.  There is a lot of work that has to be done around so as soon as I finish this letter to you, I am going to get busy.  I think that the first thing I am going to do is mow the yard.  Gotta get that finished before the day gets hot.  I will go from there.  Did you sleep well last night?  To me it just felt good to sleep in a little bit.  This heat has sure wore me down.  By the time the week is up, I am so tired I have no energy for anything else.  But today is different.  I feel alive!  I am ready to do this.  I do not get many moments like this so I am going to take advantage of it.

I would like to take the time to talk with you about God bubby.  Is that ok with you?….I just need to express to someone how much I love Him.  So I figured the best person I could talk to is my little angel.  I have come to realize many things since you passed.  God has opened my eyes to those things.  I now have a deeper love for you mother.  I respect her to the max.  We have weathered many tough times together.  When those times do come.  I grab the reigns and lead the way through the fire.  When all the smoke is cleared she is standing right there beside me.  I truly see her as a blessing from God.  For many years I tried to find a copilot in life’s journey.  I never could find anybody to fit that bill.  Until I met your mother.  That seat beside me in life was made for her.  Thank you God.

One thing I can say about God.  He has always been there for me when I needed him.  Especially during the darkest times of my life.  There were times that I strayed away from him and tried to venture out on my own.  I will tell you there were times that were really scary.  God has always been there waiting for me with arms wide open.  It makes him so happy when I come back home.  I am not leaving this time.  I need God.  I have been told by so many people in my life that I need to be the leader of my family.  I thought I was being a leader, turns out I was leading my family in the wrong direction.  When you went with God, I turned around on the spot.  I am really glad that I did that.  Things do not seem so dark anymore.  I can only imagine what you see right now.  All I have to say about that is, wow!  It must be amazing.  

 Before I end this letter to you bubby, I want to share with you a poem.  I got it from that little handout that you get from the funeral home.  You know the one where it tells you who died, when they were born, when they died.  Do you know what I am talking about now.  Sorry for the rough explanation.  Anyhow here it is:

A Baby’s Secret

I’m just a little person;  And I didn’t quite make it there;  I went straight to be with Jesus And I’m waiting for you there.

Don’t you fret about me, Mommy,  I’m of all God’s lambs most blest;  I’d have loved to stayed there with you, But Our Shepard know’s what’s best.

Many dwelling here where I live Waited years to enter in;  Struggled through a world of sorrow And their lives were marred with sin.

So sweet Mommy don’t you sorrow, Chase the gloom and wipe the tears;  I went straight to Jesus’s bosom May your heartache disappear.

Daddy gave me something for you, it’s our secret Mommy dear; Pressed it tight against my forehead, Whispered in my tiny ear.

I’ll be waiting for you Mommy-You and Daddy, all the rest.  I’ll be with you then forever And I’ll give you Daddy’s Kiss.

     Well that is it for today.  I am going to go ahead and get this day going.  I will talk to you later on my little angel.  We all love you and miss you.

I love you like a fat kid loves cake, 

Daddy

Crossing Paths

Good morning Caleb, 

This journey is starting to become one of a very interesting nature.  What started out as simple letters to you son, is heading in a direction that will offer a bit of peace to just about any body who stops here.  That is exactly what I intended to happen with this whole thing.  I find it really comforting inside to know that what we have going here is actually helping someone.  Cause bubby you know just as well as I do this whole thing is very painful.  It is important that we take such a powerful energy and do something positive with it.  If not, the outcome would be very bad.  Losing you was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to endure.  That is why I have dedicated each and every day to Jesus, you and my family.  If we all have a positive energy flowing, surrounded by God’s wonderful love we can keep the devil away at such a very vulnerable time in our lives.  Such a positive energy has the capabilities of spreading like a wildfire.  Maybe, just maybe not only will we help someone cope with loss.  We could even lead them to Jesus.  That would be awesome.  

Now let us just switch gears here.  Last night God’s wonderful power came to work for our family.  You see I believe that in life God causes us to cross paths with people who will enable us to be closer to Him.  It happened!  I spoke with two very dear people last night.  I could tell that it was meant to be.  You know at first, it was just out of plain love so that I could offer my readers who were hurting, something so valuable.  By the end of the phone conversation I loved and respected this family like my very own.  I feel so much closer to God now than I have ever before.  I love you Lord!!  you are my savior.

 I have made a decision to go out here and have the best possible day that I can, in the name of Jesus.  So with that I am going to go ahead and end this letter so that I can get ready for work.  Have an awesome day in heaven todayand I am sure that I will see you somewhere.  I always do.  You are everywhere bubby.

I love you like a fat kid loves cake, 

Daddy

A Fair Trade

Good morning Caleb, 

 

Yes I know, I have not been very good at getting a letter to you every day.  These past couple of days have been rough on me son.  There is some positive news though.  I believe that after talking to God, he has healed me.  One thing good has come out my pain.  We have managed to really touch a person’s heart through these letters.  My sadness equaled her happiness.  That sounds like a fair trade to me, after all that is the main reason that I am writing these letters to you.  I will continue to write these letters to you bubby.  You are very alive in my life.  I know that you are setting right here beside me while I am writing.

 

I have some very wonderful news.  There is a lady that takes the clothing of our passed loved ones and makes memory bears out of them.  She liked a post on my site a few days ago.  So I followed her link to see where it led me.  I thought to myself, “that would be great to offer to my readers.”  I contacted her yesterday and she agreed to author a page for my blog.  I am so thankful for this.  It is just another way that the Lord is working to help me make the very most out of these letters and this site.  I believe that in the future bubby this site is going to be the place to go when anyone has a souls that is hurting.  That is my dream.  With the love of Jesus I will accomplish this.

 

Well it is that time again.  Work.  So I must go and get ready now.  I will most definitely be thinking of you today.  Have an awesome day in Heaven today, or if you wish feel free to come hang out with me today.  I will not mind at all.

 

I love you like a fat kid loves cake, 

Daddy

Stuck In A Rut

 

Good morning Caleb, 

You sure do like to play peek-a-boo don’t you?  That was your favorite thing to do at bedtime.  I would drape the covers down over you. They would completely cover you up.  I would take turns uncovering your face and feet.  “peeeeekaaaaaaaboo!”  You loved it.  Every once in a while I would throw an occasional tickle in there.  We played the game for a few minutes.  Then it was time for you to hit the sack.  Apparently you like to play this game in spirit as well because now you play it with me.  

The last couple of days have been really rough on me.  It is almost time for bubby to go back home.  I am going to really miss him, then I will be without both of my boys.  It is going to be a really sad day for daddy when the time finally comes for him to leave.  It seems as if this is all I can think about.  Once again I going to have to muster up the strength to experience loss.  It will be ok though.  I am quite sure that I will be able to pull through it alright.  After all I will still have mommy and sissy.

I must be in a rut because I have been really uptight these past couple of days.  Bubby will you and God please help me to pull out of this.  I remember when you first passed people always talked about how there were going to be some really tough times.  This must be one of them, because I cannot seem to shake my blues away.  I don’t know.  I miss you bubby.  Well I need to get up and go to work, which by the way is a place I cannot stand.

I love you like a fat kid loves cake, 

Daddy

A Butterfly in the Wind

Good morning Caleb, 

Where is my little angel?”  “There he is!”  That reminds me of waking you in the morning.  A thought that is really vivid in my head right now is one memory that I will treasure forever.  I come to wake you one morning.  I set down beside your bed on the floor.  I was really quiet so that I did not wake you.  In a really soft voice I said, “there’s my big boy.”  You rolled over and looked at me, the biggest smile came over your face.  Then you said to me, “get up here daddy.”  So I climbed into the bed with you, covered up and cuddled with you.  I remember your little head resting on my chest.  It was one of our most intimate moments as father and son.  It did not take long before we were wrestling around and playing.  I asked you if you were ready to get up and you said yes.  Then we started our day together.  If I remember right mommy was at work that day so it was just me and you.  What an awesome memory that is.  

     Words cannot express how big of an impact you had and still have on people’s lives.  Here is an example.  We were looking to make a purchase last night and the gentleman that was helping us saw you picture on the necklace that I wear.  He asked about you.  I saw this as an opportunity to talk about you, so I did.  By the time it was over I just about had the man in tears.  I felt kinda bad, but just by the expression on his face I changed his life.  Turns out he has young children at home.  I pray that my story had such an impact on him that it drew him closer to God and his family.  Now that I think about it.  I pray that this blog has that same impact on other people.  I know that God will send all of the right people here.  So that I can help them as well.

     I think that we are going to take bubby swimming today.  Sissy is gone for the weekend, so it is just mommy, bubby and I.  He is all excited about it, because it is just not an ordinary swimming pool.  It is a water park!  With lots of slides and other fun stuff for families to do together.  Will you please watch over us today as we are out there playing in the water?  I would greatly appreciate it.  If you decide that you going to come with us, make sure that you put on your swimming trunks or mommy will have a fit.

Just out of curiosity.  At work yesterday I was riding on my lift and butterfly flew up beside me.  It matched my speed and then landed on my leg.  It was only there for a second before it flew off.  Did you have anything to do with that?  Was that you?  Just asking.  You were the first person I thought about when that happened.  Well  I am going to close this letter for now,  I hope that you have an awesome day in heaven.  Alright we need to get up and continue our journey together.  “Ready?”….”Let’s go.”

I love you like a fat kid loves cake

Daddy

In Need of Inspiration

Good morning Caleb, 

Can you believe that the week has went by so fast.  It is already that great day that we wait for all week-long.  I apologize for not writing to you yesterday.  I decided that I was going to get a little extra sleep before I went to work.  Anyhow the most important thing is I am here now and so are you.  Speaking of which, I saw you last night in the dining room with us.  It was only for a very brief second but you were there.  Every time this happens I love you more and more.

     I need some inspiration.  We are planning a big event for you.  I have decided that on May 3, of every year we will have a balloon release for you at the local park here in town.  Thing is, I need to get the word out so that people can attend that day.  I can just imagine it right now.  There will be some food there for people to snack on while the kids play.  We will all spend an afternoon in the park, then at a certain time we will release the balloons.  But if you have any ideas for us son just let us know.  That day is going to be all about you.

I need to go ahead and end this letter for the day son.  I need to get ready for the rest of the day.  Have an awesome day in heaven.
