My dad is leaving, actually as I type this from my car (thanks iPhone) we are on our way to South Carolina to take him to his sister’s house… He is starting anew and won’t be going back to California which I don’t blame him.
I am praying that he finds a job quickly that way he can save up for his own place and he’ll be free to come and go when he wants. I think he’s tasted what he can have and I have a peace that I didn’t have when he first got here that he won’t go back to his old life; Praise God!
As much anxiety as I had about him coming I am going to miss him. I actually learned a lot about him during his visit. I got to ask him what it was like for him growing up in Mississippi and that was eye opening! I learned more about my grandmother and grandfather and I even got to learn some of his secret recipe’s!
I had the great opportunity to spend some quality time with him that I rarely had growing up. And I don’t know when I will see him again but I do know that I’ve had a wonderful time making memories with my daddy!
To everyone who had the opportunity to meet him and spend time with him thank you for showing him true southern hospitality and making him feel welcome. He really has enjoyed his time here in Clarksville and him and Bill have become inseparable. So thank you and just know that if he met you he’ll never forget you! Literally! He has an amazing mind to remember names and faces!
As we leave his goal is to get a job and then go to truck driving school so please keep him and his aspirations in your prayers thanks so much, and thanks for praying me through this time in my life!
