Missing Dad

I have to admit that I am somewhat down this morning.  I have been waiting for a job to call me back  to tell me that they want to hire me.  Almost no job does a background check\drug test if they do not plan on hiring you, yet here I wait.

I got an email from a friend to tell me her father passed away in his sleep this morning early.  That little bit of news made me remember a picture I saw recently.  And that picture reminded me of my Dad.  It has taken me nearly six years to miss him.  He was a cruel man, but time lessens all that and I wish I could tell him of my accomplishments and hope he would be proud of me.

This is the picture that reminded me of my Dad:


My father was a farmer and it was not unusual to see him walking across the fields.
