This week was a hard one. My father-in-law passed away a year ago Wednesday. We finished the day eating supper around our table and talking about him. Then, for dessert, we had a Milky Way Simply Caramel – one of his favorite candy bars.
So, today, I’m going somber for Flashback Friday. The post I’m sharing is one I wrote where I reflected on his memorial and just part of the lessons I learned from him. I hope you’ll take the time to check it out. Here’s a glimpse:
At the memorial, he wanted an open mic. The morning of the service my wife asked me if I was going to share. Honestly, I had not considered sharing before that point. I thought about it, but really did not know what to say if I were to share.
The people who did share did an incredible job highlighting who he was as a man, father, brother, uncle, and friend. I could not have added anything to the service to make it better.
But after the open mic, it hit me. And since I blog and have a captive audience (you), I hope you will indulge me this morning.
