Wordless Wednesday - This Sunset is for you Dad

This sunset is for you Dad. I know your spirit surrounds this beautiful place and maybe you even had a hand in painting the sky tonight. This was one of your favorite places. You are in my thoughts and in my heart.

Thank you Karen. You have a wonderful heart.

John, Wonderful photo in honor of your father.  The power of love comes through in nature as it sounds like you have felt your dad's presence in this scene you share with us.   Having special places to go after a loved one parts is such a good way to remember them.

I often feel my dad's presence when hiking in the woods.  My mother, while walking on a beach.

Godspeed.

Gloria
