If you don’t want to know the answer, don’t ask the question

its easier to say your sorry if you didn’ technically know it was wrong

(again, something he taught me as an ADULT not a kid!)

What they don’t know ….won’t hurt YOU

(not something he shared until I was a GROWN UP!)

your kids are always your kids no matter how old they get

this amazing man always loved me, even when I lost my grandmothers watch

even when I bought a house IN the village when he told me not to …lol

when I became a parent instead of becoming my friend, he was still my dad. When the world treated me like a whole new person, he still made me feel safe and like the same girl I had always been.

I have been sniffing at this box on and off for the past four hours.
It smells like my dad.
A few months before he died he felt the need to show me this and another watch in his Armour.  The one in this box was a 20th anniversary present from The Carl Co. to my father.. the other box contained another watch my mother gave my father in the 60’s or 70’s. It contains the watch that he wore everyday till my mom died in 1982.
A few months ago I mentioned to my stepmother the watches, I told her I am not trying to take his things from you but I would really like to have the watch my mom gave him. She came over tonight to give Will his birthday present and had these with her. I was more interested in the watch my mom had given him and barely looked at the watch in this little black box. After she left I pulled this box back out and held it close to my face to see the engraving and thats when I smelled it. My fathers cologne mixed with  his laundry detergent mixed with who knows what.. its the smell of home and comfort and love. Oh.. how I have missed that smell. Its perfect timing.. with all the changes in my life that I would normally talk to him about swirling around me this is a comforting reminder of him.
