Secret Subject Swap - December 2014

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week, 12 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 


Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:

Your “Secret Subject” is:
If you could change one event that took place in 2014, what would it be?

It was submitted by: The Momisodes

If you've been following along this year, then you know exactly what kind of year I've had.

There's been some good stuff:
 -we moved back to VA
 -we joined 2 great homeschooling groups
 -we've had lots of fun

There's been a lot of bad stuff, too:
 -we moved, AGAIN... the 4th time in just over 1 1/2 years
 -we've had some car trouble
 -I've had some health issues, including an unexpected surgery

But there's one thing that I wish I could change. Just one. I will take all the bad that I've been through this year and multiply it by 100 if I could change just one thing..... I wish I still had my Dad

I miss him so much every single day. Most days I can deal and just keep myself very busy but then there are days where I just can't.... 

I know that it will get easier with time but I wish I didn't have to go through it at all. I wish he was still here. 

I've had 2 dreams about him since he passed away in August. The first was just about 2 wks ago. In my dream I was told he was dead but I didn't believe it. The whole time I searched for him all over the place. 
In the 2nd, which was just a couple of days ago, I get the call that he died but when I get to TN I find out that it was a mistake. He was at the hospital but OK.

I miss my Daddy.


  1. sobs... I am so sorry for your loss. He seemed like a good man and had a heart of gold.

    1. Thank you so much, Karen. You are absolutely correct. He was wonderful.

  2. I wish I had something poetic or beautiful to say to help take away the pain but I don't sweet friend and I am sorry. This makes me wish he was here too. You can feel your love for him in this post. I know you wish he was here still but no need to search like in your dreams because he lives on in your heart. Remember the good times and memories made.

    Love and peace to you Stacy 💕

    1. Thank you so much, Jenn!!
      You're right. He will always be in my heart and in my memories.

  3. This post breaks my heart. If I could bring him back for you I would.

  4. Stacy, I am so sorry.. Nothing I could say , could help this pain your going through. It is so hard.. I lost my daddy
    too.. it has been 10 long years, and I still want him back.. Even though we know , they are in a better place ,walking
    with our Lord, and enjoying Heaven.
    My heart and prayers are with you.. Hugs my friend.

  5. Oh, Stacy, this is so hard, and I wish I could do or say anything to make it better… What did your Daddy do or say to you when you were sad? Hug you? Make a joke?

    1. He would always make a joke or do something silly to take my mind off of whatever was bothering me.

  6. Oh Stacy.....your pain so raw.....((((hugs)))))

  7. I understand Stacy. I have moved 3 times in the last year and am moving again in a week. My 25 year marriage ended and I too lost my daddy. BIG HUGS to you honey.

  8. Daddies are supposed to be invincible, and it's incredibly difficult when their little girls find out they aren't... Sending hugs your way...

  9. I know nothing I can say will help. Just know my thoughts, prayers, positive vibes, and a billion virtual hugs are with you. Beautiful post.

  10. I wish your wish was true. I'm so sorry. Thinking of you and your family. Hugs..all the hugs. What an amazing tribute to such a special man.

      This time of year has a way of making it even harder.
