Father's Day.

This is a tough one for me to write. Not because I don't love my father, because I did. It's the remembering that he's gone and dealing with it, that hurts. Really, really, bad. One and a half years later and the outward has healed, but the little girl inside still misses her Daddy. But I am so grateful for the time that I did have with him and I am so appreciative of the man that he was and the example that he set. As my sister wrote in her funeral tribute to him - "I had a Father." And not just biologically, either. Not many can say that with conviction, so I want to honor his memory today and say "Rest in Peace, Dad". I cannot wait to see you and sit in your lap again.

And for my husband who is a wonderful Father to our two little boys, I say good job Daddy! We love you.
