Inner Thoughts

Out of the 365 days in a year, 3 days stand out more for me. These days; your birthday, every Good Friday and the day death took you away. These days are a reminder of someone who means the world to me and it reawakens the ache of your loss. Daddy it’s been almost 15 years and I still miss you loads.
I know you will be wondering what Good Friday has to do with this 😊. With you around, no matter how hard things were, every Good Friday was different for us and every one who knew us.
I remember how much time and effort we all put into the only meal of the day ‘frejon’ (Spelling might not be correct though).
Made from beans, coconut milk and sugar with palm oil stew made with freshly ground pepper /tomatoes and fried fish ( as Catholics we are not expected to eat fish on Good Friday), I tell you, it takes a whole day to prepare.
But the smile on every face when it’s time to eat and every family given makes the stress worth it.
It’s another Good Friday daddy and it’s in the middle of the night and all I keep thinking is if you were around this Good Friday, we would have made more frejon’ than usual in celebration of the outcome of this elections. You were a man of integrity in your lifetime and it lives after you and for that though a Democrat, you were a man who stood for justice and equity.
Miss you loads
