Tears from Heaven

The gloomy sky and falling rain match my mood and tears.
My son will graduate highschool tomorrow.
Yes, it's a joyous occasion - but someone is missing.
The raindrops are my Fathers tears to match my own.

Son suggested getting pizza & chicken wings afterwards.
After all, it's Thursday and son used to stay at Nana & Grampa's every Thursday and they'd get pizza & wings.

How fitting and perfect.
He should be here to see this.

I went through the same thing a couple of weeks ago when Em graduated. I couldn't help but feel like my MIL was watching over us though and giving her first graduating granddaughter a big thumbs up! It's important to honor your dad during these milestones and pizza and wings sounds like a real good tribute! Congrats to your son!

Well~ my goodness. Please give my best to the graduate :)

Maybe your Dad wasn't there in form, but I'm sure he was there in spirit. You carry a piece of him with you~
