Happy Father's Day To The Dads In Heaven

It is still your day.

Happy Father's Day To The Dads In Heaven
Nicole Leighty

To my Dad in heaven:

Thank you. Thank you for everything you did for me. Thank you for being a great father, and a great friend.

Words cannot express the love I have for you. Words cannot express the appreciation I have for you. Even though you aren't here this father's day, I will still be celebrating you, and I always will.

You were there for it all. You were there for me through my ups, and my downs. Most importantly, you have never said "No" to any of my dreams.

The most important part of our relationship, was that you have always made me feel important. No matter how busy you were, you always found time to call me, and just chat. With all of the stressors in your life, you never took any anger or frustration out on me. You always put a smile on your face, and asked me how everything was going.

Just because you aren't physically here this father's day does not mean you are any less important in my life. Not a day goes by that I wish I could pick up the phone just to hear your voice. I have been in so many situations that I always say to myself "Damn, my Dad would have been great for this."

Obviously you were taken way too soon, and everyday I am reminded of that. Even though it is heartbreaking to be reminded of that, I know that you are with me every where I go. A few weeks ago, I was driving to D.C, and the entire drive I was following the same exact car that you drove. I mean how crazy is that? It is signs like that, that let me know you are still with me.

You have always looked out for me, and you have continued that even after your passing. As much as I disliked you sometimes for the decisions you made while you were looking out for me, I have come to realize how important they were. While you were still with us it was a simple "no" but now your no's have gotten way bigger.

Right after you passed away I was going to stay with a friend, and I was going to be driving right through a terrible storm. So instead of just saying no, I fully believe that my car battery died because you were looking out for me. You were crazy about car stuff, so this just makes sense. I know a lot of people probably don't believe in this kind stuff, but if you knew my dad this was all him.

You will always be my dad. You will always be my best friend, and my first true love. You are my father.

So dad please keep looking out for me. Please be my voice of reason in my hardest times, and please bring me joy in my darkest hours.

You deserve to still be walking this earth, and hugging your family. As angry as I am for you to be gone, God knew that you were a great father, and is still allowing you to be that great dad that he knows we need you to be.

Sunday was father's day, and even though I didn't get to see you to celebrate, I said my prayers, and I know you have heard them. I will patiently wait for my next sign from you. You will always be in my heart.

Happy Father's Day Dad. I love you, and I miss you.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,

After packing two oversized suitcases and two carryons with all the boho chic clothes I thought I needed to travel across the country for my dream internship, I quickly realized that although I may look like I belong out in the entertainment capital of the world there was a lot more to it than Free People dresses and fanny packs.

Dear Los Angeles...With Love,
September: Los Angeles

Ever since I was younger I dreamed of moving out to California. There was something so amusing about being in the hub of it all that bursts with passion and artistry wherever you look. After a trip to LA when I was a sophomore in high school for dance, I fell even more in love with this utopia of a city and from that moment on, Los Angeles was that light at the end of the tunnel.
