My Jessie Journal:: Ring…ring…ring… Hello?
“Hi Daddy, it’s Jessie.”
Is everything ok?
“Everything is great daddy. You need to stop worrying about me. I’m in Heaven, having fun with all of my new friends, still swimming, baking and most of all no cancer.”
That is so great to hear Jess. I know you safe…I just miss you.
“I miss you to daddy, but remember it’s just a wink.”
Yeah, I know…some days it just feels way longer than a wink down here.
“How is mommy, Shaya and JT?”
They are doing good. The rollercoaster called “grief” never really stops…it slows down and speeds up unannounced. Then it takes sharp turn and big drops that leaves your stomach feeling queasy.
“Please let them know I love them and miss them.”
I sure will Jess. Why did you call?
“I just wanted to hear your voice daddy.”
That is so nice Jess. I was thinking the same thing this morning….how great it would be to hear your voice. There are specific sounds that I will never forget…one being your voice. So when I get to hear it again it helps me retune my memory to the exact sound. That is why I watch your CBS videos so much…to hear you talk.
“I’m glad you have those videos daddy. I don’t have videos so that is why I wanted to call.”
Jess, you know you can call me anytime. I’m always here for you and always love hearing your voice.
“Thanks daddy…please tell Shaya I love her “sister talk” blog and I have made sure that Devin and Carter are doing great here with me.”
I sure will Jess.
“Bye daddy. I’m glad I got to hear your voice today. Love you!”
I love you to Sweet Pea. It was great hearing your voice too!
