I couldn't go to bed without sending my Dad an e-mail to tell him that I loved him with all my heart. I had to make sure that he knew that he has been the most amazing father and coach to me in this thing called life.
I had just talked to him this evening, to wish him strength and calm as he heads into surgery the following day. I so badly wanted to blurt out everything that I had in my heart, but I knew if I did that I would release the emotions that would come along with this, and in that moment I needed to be strong for my Dad. I chose instead to put on my big girl panties and use the power of 'choosing higher thoughts' method to shift his energy into a lighter place, creating some space between his current state of mind and fear..
