My Daddy


After learning that my father had been hospitalized with blocked arteries, I realized how fortunate I am to have him in my life.  It’s not that I haven’t realized it before, it’s just when you suddenly get news like that, you take inventory…at least I do.  I’ve had too much experience with losing loved ones in the past and know that there is no guarantee for tomorrow.  My dad is fine and will likely be home today, but I want to express how important he is to me on this Fortunate Friday.  Sharing this with you makes me accountable to never forget this.  I love you, Daddy.

I guess the point here is simple:  Don’t ever take anyone or any relationship for granted.  Tell them you love them; tell them you care; tell them they are important to your life.  Make an effort to share your life with them.  Believe that God knew what he was doing when putting you together.  Be grateful every day for the relationships that you have.  Write a note or an email; pick up the phone.  You’ll be glad you did.  What or whom are you thankful for today?  Be well-be beautiful.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

  1. There is a picture of me and my father when I’m about 3 that I love. He is squatting down behind me and I’m standing between his legs and in the circle of his arms. I remember feeling so safe there. I cannot imagine losing him, though I know I will some day.
