Letter to Savannah 7/28/18

My Little Savannah,

This may be the last letter I write to from this house. It is Saturday night, and I have one or two nights more before I officially move. Have no fear, I will have a nice place for us by the time you get to visit me again. Your Daddy is working toward us having a nice time whenever we are together, and soon you will have a room all your own that we can decorate together. I look forward to us being able to draw and paint and work on letters and maybe even getting you to sing.
I think of you all the time, even though I have been working many hours, and packing the rest of the time. All the while it makes me sad, because I liked the house your Mommy and I had together so much. Even though we were only there for about five months, I have a lot of nice memories of us playing together there. Daddy’s bedroom opened to the living room and one of the bathrooms, and that bathroom also opened to the kitchen. I would chase you around the circle it made. You would laugh so hard, and I’d suddenly switch direction and catch you before spinning you around. Then the chase would start again. You would say ‘Daddy run!’ and that was my cue that the game was on… I loved playing with you at that house. One day soon, I will have a house at least as nice as that one.
I hope you have a fun weekend, and get to go somewhere to play. I hope your mommy took you to Sky Zone with the card I gave her. I was trying to be nice to you so you could have a good time with her, just like when I gave you an Easter basket this year. I still don’t know if you got it, but I hope you did, even though your Mommy had me arrested for it. I’ll explain that one day, probably when you are older and have discovered these letters, because you will be old enough to understand then, and you deserve to know the truth. I don’t lie, and I won’t lie to you, little one. I never lied to your Mommy either, because that is the kind of person I am. There are reasons for that, good ones, and I am happy that I was raised to believe in things like truth, and integrity, and being a good person. I’m going to do my best to pass those qualities on to you, because I believe that we as people should all strive to be the best person we can be. Because we are human, there are times where we fail, and I am no exception, but it is important that we try as best we can.
I miss you very much every day, and I am eager to see you again. I am not sure what we will do together next weekend, but I will make sure you have a great time. It makes me the happiest when you laugh and smile, and it always has. You are my angel, and I regret that your mommy wouldn’t let me give you a brother or sister. I think you would have loved them very much.
I will see you soon, little one.

Thinking of you always,

Love, Daddy
