Just a couple hours ago I found myself suddenly desperate to find something that Dad had written. I needed to find something, anything that would have his writing on it. After a bit of searching I was able to find a handful of random cards in which he had written something. But the one thing that I wanted the most were the little cards with the bear and bees on them.
You see, years ago my Dad would randomly leave me one of those little cards with a note on the inside and/or the outside. Most of the time it was just a simple I Love You but once in awhile he'd draw some kind of picture. Back then I thought it was sweet but goofy. Now? Oh how very precious they are to me.
When I saw this card, the tears immediately began to fall. "I love you more." That is a special phrase that my Dad always used with me. Any time I told him that I loved him (and even when I didn't) he would always tell me that he loves me more. How greatly I miss hearing him say those 4 special words.
These little notes from my Daddy have now become priceless to me and I will cherish them for as long as I live.
