Happy Father's Day to my daddy! He is an amazing individual who has always stepped up to the plate and been an amazing rock for our family. He has taught me everything I know about huntin', fishin', playing softball, and trying to be a listener for others. (He's way better at all of those than I am).
I know all I know about the woods, the outdoors, the weather, and the land because of him. He has been patient with me while he has told me countless times, "Shh! You have to be quiet", or "be still.!" He has untangled my fishin' line from soo many trees, and reassembled it once I broke it off in the water. He has picked up the tee when I knocked it over with the bat, and he has coached me throughout my years, on and off the field.
There's really no way around avoiding the fact that i AM my daddy's girl. That's not to say that I don't love my mother to death. She, too, has taught me things about the kitchen, house etiquette, and loving people unconditionally. She is one of the strongest women I know as well, and I can't help but think about her on this day. Although, her daddy did visit me in a dream last night, and all I remember is telling him that I loved him. He was in a yellow polo shirt, and we were at church. He hugged me tight, and I woke up.
I know that each of you who read this have a father in your life, and I can only hope that they've brought as much joy to you as mine has. I'm so thankful for my family each and every day. No matter where you go, how long you stay, or how mad you get, they'll always be there for you - always.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY! I LOVE YOU!
