My dad certainly left us so many blessings...
Blessings that he worked hard for...
That he cherished deeply...
Blessings that can’t be quantified financially
Our mission is to guard, nourish & preserve his hard work & efforts throughout the years
It was a pleasure to welcome our suppliers @comunidadpipore again in Lebanon 🙏🏻 #marketvisit#yerbamate#yerba#dadslegacy#ripdad#blessedandgrateful
16 years... the older I get, the fuller and clearer my view of Dad gets. Getting insight to the man he was, who at the age of 50 migrated from Brazil to California to begin his long awaited DREAM of intense seminary studies. I can’t imagine! With his wife and 4 kids (17, 15, 11, and 7), experiencing a new country, new job, new language, new academic challenges, new expectations, new pressures. But clinging to and believing the SAME GOD of yesterday, today and always. A DREAM fulfilled. Short lived. But forever a legacy. Of faith. Of God’s faithfulness. Miss you, Dad!❤️🙌 You remind me that it’s never too late to pursue those dreams... to find PURPOSE, and to TRUST in Him for the outcomes. #DadsLegacy#cancersucksbutgodisgood
Family...we're like the Golden Girls. Been through it all & stick together up until the very end.😃 Blessings even if we dont always see them or appreciate them. Dad always said "Oh how I love my girls, each one Unique in there own different way. But @ the end of the day you are my flesh & blood & your sisters & most of all family & when I'm dead & gone you will still have eachother!" 🦅
I never thought it would be so soon that those words would ring so true & boy how we all miss you!!😢 That being said go make an effort to call, stop by, or let someone know just what they mean to you. Because you never know. Time goes faster than you think. Dont blink! Love you girls & our FAMILY! 👩👩👧👧 #dadslegacy#daddysgirl#family#sisterhood#sisterlylove#goldengirls#lovemytribe#simplelife
For those of you that have known me for awhile know I lost my father just a month before my oldest daughter was born (his first grandchild). On the peak of the 12th anniversary of his death this August, the plant that I’ve had for many years finally bloomed! My brothers and I all have the same plant and their have had blooms before. I’m thrilled that mine too has finally bloomed. Very much similar to my own life...a late bloomer finding my passion in life & having alignment in my soul & purpose transforming the lives of others. #itsnevertoolate#latebloomer#nofilter#dadslegacy#followyourheart
“Every time I lay aside my desire to minister to another, I am living out the results of Christ’s death on the cross.” —Bob Bixby, my dad
Just found this on a scrap piece of paper in an old NT going through a drawer of things at my mom’s. Dad’s handwriting. #mydaddymemories#dadslegacy
Donated to the Cancer Council today, $700!! For any of my new followers that may not know the reason why I donate ALL profit to @cancercouncil In January 2015 my mum was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer & then in August 2015 my dad was diagnosed with leukaemia and passed in March 2016. I started sewing as a therapy, a way to process my grief and within that grief I started making unique handmade items to raise money for Cancer Council. It was my way I felt I could help in a situation I couldn't change, in total I have now individually raised $14,200 from my items. I would not have been able to do that without the incredible support that so many of you ladies have shown and continued to show over the past few years. I've been back at work full time for sometime now so sewing has been slow but I've been able to do more natural dyeing which has been a great time to be able to reflect and relax. I am a daughter, a wife, a mum of two small girls who works full time and loves to create in my spare time to raise money for cancer Council in the hope that one day Cancer no longer exists. Thank you so much for helping me support others. Fashion for a cause. ✨
Some thoughts after helping my 9 year old make a PowerPoint last night for his “How To” project due today. ———————————————————————— 1.) I never realized the hilarity and insanity that ensues when I attempt to do something technical I haven’t done in awhile until my son pointed it out (and laughed at me). Some of my behaviors include talking to myself, yelling at the computer, asking the computer questions and answering them sarcastically in strange voices, uttering cuss words under my breath but quickly changing them (aka Shiitake mushrooms and fudge brownies), and triumphantly cheering and happy dancing because I actually figured it out! 🍄 ———————————————————————- 2.) My brainiac son chose to teach his class how to play chess. For real? I’m pretty sure the best I could do at age 9 was how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (and I’d probably still garble that up)!! 🤓 —————————————————————— 3.) Why did his teacher assign this project for the second to last week of school? Seriously. I stopped reading school emails weeks ago. At this point I don’t even care if he loses points for sloppiness or lengthiness or tardiness (hence we were working on it the night before it was due). Just think how much better this project would have been if it had been assigned at the beginning of the trimester! 📓 ———————————————————————- 4.) I can’t wait to see how we did! 💯 ———————————————————————- 5.) I still have no clue how to play chess!🤷♀️ ——————————————————————— P.S. Those chess pieces in the box belonged to my dad who taught my son how to play chess when he was in kindergarten. ❤️💔
My Saturday night read. Without a doubt one of my favorite artists. Now that my dad is gone I can't have conversations with him about his art, which he mostly stopped after 1976. I know that he liked Dali as well and I definitely see some influence there. I'm not sure why I'm posting this but I believe it's meant to be shared. I think my Dad sent me a message the other night when he knew I was having a hard time. The next pictures are not even close to being some of my favorites but certainly provide a bit of a glimpse into the diversity of his sketches and water colors. I believe the portrait of the woman is of someone he had an affair with that ultimately ended my parents marriage. The last picture being a self portrait. Shout out to my Dad who not only passed down his love of art but also his creative abilities that I see in all the members of my family. #Dali#Fortheloveofart#Dadslegacy
Spring garden planting day is finally here. Giving King Richard leeks a try this year along with dad’s favorite, the Detroit Dark Red beets. So grateful to grow up with a true vegetable gardener. Each year my time in my own garden takes me back to those memories of childhood. #garden#seedlings#planting#seeds#dadslegacy#thebeetgoeson#ilovemylife
Francis Hussey you should be very proud of this! I'm proud of you for sticking with it and believing in it as a project. Can't wait to see it when you come up next week.
Dad looked forward to finishing his work more than anything else and as his life here was coming to an end, He was busy finishing his work. It was a sunny and beautiful day, Dad loved this kind of weather and so did I. Though the steps to the street corner were each a challenge, he was anxious to get outside and feel the sun shine on the back of his neck. [ 896 more words ] #dadslegacy#makingmoments#livefully
