I am definitely a daddy’s girl.
Let me tell you something about my dad. The Lord sure knew what he was doing when he put me in my family. I can be stubborn and hard-headed and determined despite other’s annoyance. I have given my parents more than enough to worry about in my short 20 years. And I tend to dream big (which usually includes a hefty amount of finances). I am NOT an easy child by any stretch of the imagination. But if a daughter has ever experienced love from her father, it would be me.
My dad has loved me when I surely didn’t deserve it. He has encouraged me after I snapped at him. He has shown me new things, taken me to other countries and continents, encouraged passions in me for people and life and the Lord, and has stuck by me without hesitation when I have hit rock bottom. He has never doubted the Lord’s hand in my life, and a trusting father who trusts in the Father is the greatest gift a daughter can receive. Today on Father’s Day (and every day) I am so thankful for my dad.
If you are reading this, Dad, I still mean what I wrote in the gift we gave you on your 40th birthday. “When I grow up, I want to be just like you. Except for being a girl.” You are an example to me day in and day out. I love you and Happy Father’s Day.
I hope you all had a chance to celebrate your fathers today. Here’s how I celebrated my dad today:
I baked Peach- Pecan Streusel Muffins the night before so he could wake up with some love and deliciousness:
We went to Wahoo’s Fish Tacos for lunch with my brother and his fiance. (That’s where the top picture is from.)
We took him golfing. He rocked it:
(And I took some pictures of my own on the course.)
Then we went to my dad’s cousin’s for a great dinner and time with family.
It was a great day to celebrate my dad. I hope he felt so loved. Thank God for fathers!
