Going back in time

Today's prompt for I must confess is if you could go back to one single moment in my life what would it be. Truth is I can't pick one single moment, but I do know I would go back to a time when dad was still alive. A time before everything turned upside down.

No particular day stands out, but I would spend the day with him. I'd love to say I'd ask him all the questions I want answered, but if I went back to when he was alive I'd be younger than 10 and wouldn't even understand the questions I want to ask.

I'd just like to be able to spend the day with him. 

Any day. 

A whole day. 

A whole glorious day. 

I'd wake up early and we'd have french toast for breakfast. 

We'd ride to the quarry and go fishing at deep water bend. 

We'd walk to the corner shop and buy lollies. 

Then we'd go to the park and play for as long as possible until just before the sun was going down. 

We'd have welsh rabbits for dinner.

 I'd stay up as late as possible hoping that if I never went to sleep the day would never be able to end....

~ If I could cheat and take my smartphone with me to capture the entire day and bring it back with me to now that'd be great too.

  1. What a sweet and lovely post! I lost my dad last year and though I am so much older than 10, I would like to have one more day with him too!

  2. Oh Toni this post made me cry, I can feel your longing in every word. I'm sorry that you didn't get more time with your dad.

  3. I'm so sad that you were so young when you lost your dad. Life can be so unfair. I'm sure he would be so proud of who you have grown up to be and your lovely family. :-) xo

  4. What a beautiful, heartfelt post xxx

  5. What a gorgeous post. I struggled to pick a single moment this week.

  6. Oh that is very sweet Toni, such heartache to lose your dad so young. Makes me realise even more how lucky I am to still have mine x

  7. This is a gorgeous post. If only we could go back to our loved ones, to show them what we have made of ourselves.

  8. Sweet post Toni. If only heaven had visiting hours...I'd go and spend the day with my sister! xo

  9. Sounds like a glorious day with your Dad. I cannot imagine the day when mine is no longer here. Much love to you xx

  10. I feel your Dad would like this too. Beautifully expressed Toni ♥

  11. That's a huge thing to have to go through as a child. It's funny how it's the mundane everyday moments that we treasure the most with our loved ones.
