Since the passing of my father, I have received an out-pouring of love shown by my family, friends, previous employers and to my surprise, some of my subscribers and followers. Your prayers, kind words of encouragement, your beautiful cards and flowers have touched my heart in more ways than one. I know that my family is also appreciative.
Losing someone you love dearly is so hard, but for me, my belief in the Resurrection and the belief that my father is “sleeping” brings me comfort. Gone are the aches, the pains and the daily struggle of him trying to live from one day to the next. My father lies sleeping and he’s in no more pain! I have my memories and of course, his one of a kind voice in my head to keep me going. As long as I have my memory, no one can take that away from me!
As I continue to push myself harder to make The Chronicles of Neffie a household name, I will never forget what my father told me. He said, “With this one, you got something special. Some good will come of it if you keep pushing yourself. You’ll see.” As I typed that, I could feel the tears in my eyes well up because I am now seeing what my father had already said would happen months before he passed.
To all of you who called, sent a card, flowers or a text to express your condolences, I would like to tell you thank you. You have no idea how your thoughts of concern touched my heart. I long for the day when I can tell my father, my twin and one of my closest friends all about it and how he was right about my first novel series The Chronicles of Neffie.
Until next time, stay safe everyone and be sure to always tell those you love how much you really love and appreciate them.
