  • Missing my dad

    My dad's been gone for almost five years now, but naming my son after him has made me miss him a lot more lately. The other night I was trying to imagine what his reaction would have been if I introduced his grandson to him, with his name.

    I'm just missing my dad today.

    Losing someone, especially a relative is hard. Especially when there are big events you feel they should be there for.

      Yeah. Birthdays, holidays... are especially rough. Especially the first couple.


      Zymologist: I'm sure he would have been pleased and proud. But don't worry in due time you'll be able to tell him all about it.

            I have no major regrets with my dad--we were on good terms when he passed away and had a very solid relationship. Still, there are a bunch of things that I just miss doing with him.

            I wish I could play chess with him (and lose), I wish I could talk to him about politics and theology, I wish he could meet my wife and kids, I wish I could watch a Boise State football game with him....

            Edit: I wish I could hear him preach again, too.

              Now you get to pass those things on to your son - things you and your father enjoyed together as well as the opportunity to tell your son about his granddad.
