I just wanted to take a minute or two to post a Happy Father's Day to my dad. I was fortunate enough to have a great dad growing up and am blessed that he is still in my life. I was such a Daddy's Girl growing up too. I love following him around everywhere he went. He was, and still is, there for me anytime I need him. I have lots of great memories of him and I together but there are a few special times that really stand out. On Saturdays I loved going to the dump with him. After dropping off the trash we would stop at a convenience store for a soda and candy bar. I remember following behind him planting seeds in the garden. He would dig a little hole and tell me how many seeds to drop in and I would carefully count out the seeds to make sure I had the right number . He coached my softball teams in elementary school and sold refreshments with the other band boosters when I was in high school. He has listened to me cry when I hurt and cheered me on when I doubted myself. He taught me to drive a car, how to shoot a gun and most of all he taught me right from wrong. He showed me what a great man is so I knew what to look for in a husband. I am a lucky girl, I have a great father.
I caught this picture of my dad and my niece a few months ago. I love this picture.
