Who's Your Daddy
Alright, I know this is not all dads! But it is a cute picture capturing the innocence of life. Every father's day I struggle with getting my father something unique and special. What do you get someone that has helped you out so much in life and your family. A dad that has given you an easier path, given you advice that sometimes you didn't always want to hear. My father has had his struggles with alcoholism. I think of all my younger years growing up in a house of egg shells and turmoil. I often let the past go and focus on the presence. My father has been sober for over 20 years and Im grateful to know the man he is now. It is quite a accomplishment to succeed in overcoming such an awful addiction. Im happy his granddaughters get to see what I missed growing up. A thoughtful, caring, smart grandfather that loves them. I see the way he looks at his granddaughters and that makes me appreciate my father for who he has become. I tell him all the time how much I appreciate him. I think fathers day should not be celebrated on just one day, but everyday.
