Today would have been my dad’s 61st birthday. It seems unbelievable that he has been gone for 14 years. I have been thinking about him a lot in the last couple of weeks. They say that you learn a lot about love and marriage from watching your parents and I am no exception to that. I always said I grew up in the Leave It To Beaver house. My parents met in high school, married young, had kids and were married until death did them part. A fairytale by todays standards.
It is my hope that somewhere God has a man like that all picked out for me.
I miss him every day. Oh how my life is different than it was 14 years ago. And I wonder what he would think of the woman I have become in that time.
Happy Birthday Daddy.
