Today is a very special day! It’s my daddy’s birthday!
Honestly, I never realized it until I was engaged that I was a daddy’s girl. I’m sorry to say, but I feel like I took for granted the relationship we had when I was in my teens/very early 20’s. My dad was a hard worker, and wasn’t always there for every track meet or cheerleading competition… but it was all for the benefit of his family. We wouldn’t be where we are now if it wasn’t for him. I can’t thank him enough and be prouder that I get to call him Dad.
I moved from my home in Northern California to finish my education in Southern California 8 years ago. I only saw him a handful of times a year. Now that we live back in the same city, I get to see him everyday and I couldn’t love it any more. I love seeing him as a grandfather (Devyn calls him Opa) – he is most definitely still young at heart!
