Our dinner table

While the girls were setting the table last night I was distracted trying to get our dinner out of the pan in one piece, so didn't help them like I usually do. When we sat down I noticed one extra setting. I commented on this and F told me, "It's for daddy so he can have dinner with us tonight."

Miss F has an amazing ability to sense when I'm missing her dad, and an even more amazing ability to remind me that he is still here. He's here in spirit, watching and listening and laughing with us - But more importantly, he's here in his girls. And he always will be.

oops I didn't mean it was funny but rather they do things that surprise us when we least expect it.

That was so moving. I feel bad to say I hadn't read your side bar before this, and had no idea at all.
You're right, he does live in them.

Often when my little one feels for her dad, I explain that the way to keep people who have died alive is to tend to that place they have in our hearts.

It is wonderful that you can all do that together.
