Oct 18th will be a day I will never forget. It’s the birthday of my father, Michael Butler Sr. He would have been 63 years old on today. It’s funny because I always thought my dad would live forever. I never thought I would ever have to be without him. I figured he’d be at Maddy’s high school and college graduation, her wedding, and become a great grandfather one day.
I sit thinking about how I don’t have him and get upset thinking of all the things I want to tell him and can’t. I want to hear him tell me how the Cowboys are going to the Super Bowl or have him hold the flash light while supervising me fixing a faucet. My father was supposed to be with me forever and never leave.
Then I realize that he’s still here with me and he will live forever. I have all these memories of him smiling, fussing at me, and all the lessons he taught me. There hasn’t been a day since he passed that I haven’t remembered one of his many sayings. Lord knows he had hundreds lol.
So, here’s to my super hero! It’s your day Poppa Bear! In honor of your day, I have to share some silly pics of you. It’s only right lol.
Life is for Living,
