Things I miss

Just sitting here at work this afternoon and staring at a picture of my parents.  I realized I missed a lot of things with them being gone;

1) my mom’s cooking

2) hugging my father

3) hugging my mother

4) seeing the two of them walking together through a store

5) playing euchre and pinochle with them (I was never very good at either)

6) watching dad do his crossword puzzles

There’s a lot more I could say, but those are the things that jump out at me right now.  Oh, my weekly calls to mom, getting to tell her and dad all the cool things that are happening in life.  Would loved to be able to hear their voice when I told them Danielle and I were going to adopt.
