Last dance June 18 2017
My father loved to dance. Outside of church, anytime music started, he grabbed my mother and started dancing. A dance floor wasn’t necessary – just my mother.
His dances of choice were jitterbug and foxtrot. While my mother claimed not to be able to jitterbug, they were a very handsome pair dancing a foxtrot.
“Dance like no one is watching,
Love like you’ve never been hurt,
Sing like no one is listening,
Live like heaven on earth.”
could have been written about my parents.
Although that advice prompts us to dance like no one is watching, my father danced with eyes only for my mother.
I was fortunate enough to witness him dancing many times, and although it has been almost five years since his last dance, I can picture them still.
