I called my mom today and asked to talk to my dad on the phone. I’ve never talked to him on the phone a lot, the only time he’d ever call me was when my mom was out of town and he was lonely. He doesn’t like the phone very much. I told him all about what’s happening tomorrow and asked my mom to show him the website. His voice sounded happy and that made me happy.
I don’t know why I’m nervous. I know I shouldn’t be. I know in my heart that this is what I’m supposed to be spending my time on. I’ve gotten so much joy from sitting at the computer building this website and meeting with Kim to file non-profit status and setting up a real, live professional bank account (we’re legit, folks). It has done my heart so much good to reflect on him and on his life and to go back in time to a life that was a lot simpler. I’ve absolutely LOVED hearing the stories from so many people about how their lives were impacted by him. I cannot put into words how that’s affected me. So, thank-you from the bottom of my heart.
If you’re interested in helping out by volunteering some time to help us get this thing off the ground, please, please feel free to reach out to me. I’d absolutely love to hear from you.
So, with a happy heart and more pride than I know what to do with, here we go.
