That was one of my most favorite moments of that morning. I think dad would have loved the whole thing. I am so grateful that we were all together for that time. It made it so special.

This was an awesome post.

This post made me cry. In a good way.


What a nice moment to share with your mom and sisters. I'm glad you could laugh and imagine him watching over you finding joy in you as well. I think it very very possible! :)


God works in mysterious ways in how we grieve and manage our emotions during this special time. It is wonderful that you were not along to experience it but with family to remember your dad only as family can. Blessings to you.
I now know what I want to do my day 7 word challenge (Cherish) on; my dad. Thanks for sharing.


I laughed hysterically as I read this.. But when you recalled the memory of being with your father at this restaurant, it made me stop and wonder at what I will be looking back on when I face this loss and what will make me feel at peace.


I think this is beautiful. Your capturing a treasured moment with such eloquence is a touching tribute to your father and his family.


Thanks for sharing this. I love it.


gosh, Amy. I just love reading what you write, and I plan to file this away for a day in the (hopefully) distant future when I might need it even more.

That morning was just as your dad would have wanted it to be. What a wonderful memory each of you have of bonding together over giggles and pancakes.

Yes, life must move on. Though life isn't always sweet, we must face it with a positive vibe. Life is too short to spend on sorrows. Challenges are given to us to make us strong.
I'm glad you've found something positive in your father's death. I'm sure he wanted you all to be happy.
