Daddy surprised me on my 10th birthday with a beautiful horse and I named her Lucky. She is so sweet and we bonded immediately. After many riding lessons we became inseparable and I knew one day we would be exploring the country together.

My 15th birthday is tomorrow and I asked daddy if we could take Lucky out for a ride, he said yes.

Buzz buzz. I shut off my alarm.

“Dad! Come to my room!”

I heard Daddy’s footsteps and as I looked up to see him all I saw was pitch black.

“What’s wrong Rosie?”

“I don’t know dad. I’m scare. When I looked at my alarm my vision became blurry. Now all I see is black and a bit of light.”

We rushed to the emergency room and the doctor told us I have become partially sighted.

When we arrived home I told Daddy to take a photo of Lucky. I have that photo on my nightstand so I can see her up close and imagine our adventures together.

A Moment

gazebo

As I sit here and think, I feel very grateful for everything I have in my life. I am blessed with a family, a job, and most importantly my life. Whenever I had a bad day I used to take a walk with my dad and sit on this bench, we would talk for hours. It brought some comfort being sheltered in this gazebo and having my dad next to me always made things better. But now that he’s gone this special place means so much more. I make sure to stop by every day because I know he’s always here waiting to comfort me as we sit and enjoy the view. So today I want you to know my daughter, your grandpa will always be here waiting for you when you come into this world.
