One Thousand Gifts . . .

I left him yesterday after touching his unshaven face, cupping it in my hands and kissing the lips that belong to me as much as my own do.

I drove my children away on Father's Day with cards of love on the kitchen counter.

A six day trip without my heart . . .

because I leave it behind whenever I go without him.

My list continues . . .

his unshaven face

his wink

his prayers with Max at night

his ticklefest with Izzy

diet teas in the fridge

peanut butter and crackers

the ring he has never taken off

skin on skin

cell phones

forgiveness

I'm eight hours away with fifteen minutes on the computer.

Maybe that's a good thing - the computer time - because with more time my 1000 gifts could all be about the man I love.

Happy Daddy's Day, my love, I miss you.

My heart - he'll take good care of it.

My list, #101-110.

Hope your trip is wonderful!!!
