I'm Having My Best Day Yet


 

Feelings Friday #16 - I'm Having My Best Day Yet 

Two weeks ago, along with my six siblings and my mom, I held my fathers hand as, after 85 years of enjoying every drop of fun from life that God intended, he passed away. 

This week's Feelings Friday is born out of the FULLY ALIVE way my dad lived his life. 

This is my dad, exactly one year ago, fixing a 40-foot long flagpole at age 84, pausing his concrete mixing just long enough to pretend to be beating me into digging with a stick. I’m telling you, he could find the fun in anything.



Though my father died on August 5th, his mischievous spirit and the gratitude he embodied lives on.

I hope you take his favorite six little words and infuse a little Leo Sr. into your life as well. 

I overheard my mom on the phone saying to a friend, “Heaven’s gettin’ good”, the other day, and I have to tell you, I wholeheartedly agree.
