Pictured below is my sweet Daddy …
it has been nearly 5 years now since his passing
and I still miss him every single day.
He taught me so much in life and I am grateful to have had his unconditional love.
He lived big and loved bigger.
Never for a moment did I doubt his love for me. He believed in me like no one else ever has.
He told me I could do anything I set my mind to, and I never wanted to disappoint him.
I loved to see him happy. I tried to make him proud most days growing up, but when I disappointed him, it hurt me so much to see that look of disappointment on his face and that image kept me from making many mistakes along the way.
This man gave it all to all he loved - always the first to give the shirt off his back for others. He would gladly do without himself to help someone else, that is the just the kind of love he had in his heart.
He was my hero … my best friend … my encourager … my advisor … he had such wisdom and discernment …. he was my daddy and he was such a good daddy and I was so blessed to have had him …
Happy Father’s Day
