IF THIS OLD HAT COULD TALK –Today was a huge day for me on my journey. Today an old BarH employee kindly gave me my dad’s old cowboy hat. Any of you that knew my relationship with my dad… knows that this meant the WORLD to me. He said that he got his hands on it before “they” threw it away with a lot of his other belongings from his house just six months after he died (wow, broke my heart).
But please believe me, I’m not bitter and I don’t hold any grudges. Quite the opposite, I am grateful beyond measure. I am a believer that God will fight my battles and he will bring the darkness into light. My boys and I had so many memories with my dad that will forever be in our hearts but to have something to touch that was so important to him is beyond words. Thanks to each of you that have reached out to me this last month. You have answered so many of my questions, which is so important in my healing. It’s the not knowing or understanding that hurts the most. There are some that have not, and that’s okay. I am so grateful for my friends and family that have been there this past year for me and my boys.
God has provided me a peace in my heart and I know this is why HE is bringing so many things to light in my life. If only this hat could talk… although I probably don’t need to know what it saw or heard. I will wear it with pride and think about the good times with my dad. Life is good and it’s only getting better …. EXODUS 14:14
