My father and I spent many years apart from each other. As a child, I knew I loved him very much. Enough to let him go and live the life he wished to live. I always knew I was his daughter and we held a spiritual bond with each other. As an adult I created a life of my own. Late in his life we were able to reconnect and spend time with each other. We savored each day as a blessing. Knowing that each day is all we had to make up for a lifetime, there are no regrets. Only time to know he loved me and I loved him too.
