A Visit (SOL19 #30)


I drove up the driveway and saw the blue bag sitting on the stoop. My Old Navy shipment had arrived just in time for spring break! I grabbed my work bag, got out of the car, and made my way toward my package. 
As I approached, I smiled, and bent down to pick up the bag. Just as I lifted the bag something flew into my face. I swatted it away. A moth.
Unbelievable. 
I’ve written about moths before. Since the day we buried my father, moths have come to visit me and I truly believe those ugly, flying insects are him coming to say hello. Though strange, I feel a sense of calm whenever I have a moth visitor because it reminds me of my Dad.
I haven’t seen a moth in a LONG time, but it did make sense that the moth would come when I ordered something I probably didn’t need from Old Navy. He always hated when we would buy something purely because we wanted it. Hence, my most recent encounter with the moth dive-bombing me in the face. 
Hi, Dad. Miss you, too.

  1. Wow. I love that your dad comes to you in the form of a moth. Mine visits as a red cardinal, but since we don't really have them in California, it's usually in a painting, on a bumper sticker, on a dishtowel...once your eyes are open to it, they present themselves! I found it amusing to think he was there to give you a hard time about your frivolous purchases! :) My dad would totally do the same.
