Happy Father’s Day Daddy - My Angel

I hope the Daddy’s and single Mommies had a wonderful Father’s Day. Hubby had a wonderful Father’s Day. Buggy, daddy loved the necklace you gave him. It was a dog tag with your photo on it. You guys had so much fun playing in the yard chasing Chantal, playing ball and hitting some golf balls and of course digging in the dirt. 

For me, Father’s Day is always a difficult time.  I lost my daddy 8 years ago and it hasn’t gotten any easier.  Everyone says it gets better. I disagree. I think about him all.the.time. At 63, he was way too young to go. There was still so much for him to experience and see. I guess Mami and God needed him more. A part of me feels cheated. He got to see my nephews, hold them, play with them and smother them with kisses. Buggy, I’m sorry you are not able to see Abuelo here on earth but I’m pretty sure you have seen him many times. Your silly personality reminds me of him. Abuelo was always so much fun to be with, always laughing and joking. Everyone loved him.  It makes me happy when you see his pictures and you give him hugs and kisses and I know that he loves every single one of them.

I found this poem online about pennies from heaven and loved it. It seems when I’m having a tough time, that is when I find my pennies. They may be from my parents, grandparents or my doggies and for me I find comfort in finding my pennies and know that someone up there is thinking of me and telling me that everything is going to be O.K.

I hope when you are feeling sad you find your pennies.


I found a penny today
Just laying on the ground,
But it's not just a penny
This little coin I've found.
Found pennies come from heaven
That's what my Grandpa told me,
He said Angels toss them down
Oh, how I loved that story.
He said when an Angel misses you
They toss a penny down,
Sometimes just to cheer you up
To make a smile out of your frown
So don't pass by that penny
When you're feeling blue,
It may be a penny from heaven
That an Angel's tossed to you



Te Amo,



  1. Awww - great poem. I'm lucky that I still have my dad to spend time with. Sometimes I take that for granted and I shouldn't. I just feel like my parents will be around forever - I'm in denial I guess.

  2. big hug! I am sure ur daddy is smiling big knowing you will forever keep his memory alive!

  3. Hugs, and big hugs, and even bigger hugs. I have a very very very hard time with death and dying when it comes to loved ones - I can't wrap my head around it. It doesnt make sense. I lost my Grandpa, and father figure 4 years ago on the morning of my 23rd birthday. I think of him often, wonder if I'm making him proud, wondering if he's watching over me. Sometimes I'll talk to him, hoping he's listening,, and there are some times I feel him around me and my daughter. The pain is still there, still present, but I'm dealing with it all somehow..it's important to output your emotions and glad you were able to share this with all of us :)

  4. Sending you many hugs back. I lost my mother two weeks before my 23rd birthday. I can't believe it will be 20 years and its even tougher now that I have a daughter of my own. Yes they are definitely around us - I truly believe that and you bet your butt you are making him proud! Keep talking to him, he is listening!

  5. Thank you so much! he was such an amazing person!

  6. Yes you are very lucky. I think everyone thinks their parents will be around forever. No one wants to think of them not being around. Take lots of photos together, videos, and just make those memories, no matter how little they may be. Life is just so short.
