Happy Father's Day to all the fathers, grandfathers, and those that play the role of a father in someone's life!
I have many wonderful examples of fathers in my life:
- My father-in-law: who has done so much for his sons and welcomed me to the family as if I'd always been a part of the family. Who fights for what he believes in and loves his family more than anything!
- My Pappy: My mother's father. He taught me that I could do anything. He taught me how to garden and was always there when I needed him, if he wasn't traveling or out having fun. My Pappy taught me that life was only worth it if you actually lived while you were alive--the day he went into the hospital for the last time, he was supposed to be on his was to Atlantic City with his AARP group!
- My Dad: who has loved me since the day I was born. I know this because I had major health issues due to birth defects and my Dad left my Mom in one hospital to go with me as they transferred me to another hospital. He loves to pick on me, but always has my best interest at heart. I am, and always will be a Daddy's Girl! Today I called my dad to see if he wanted to go to a classic car show, something we love to do together, but the U.S. Open was on, so he chose to stay home. I know that he would do anything for me and has supported me, eventually, on all my decisions even if he didn't understand them.
- My cousins, uncles, and brother-in-law: they all love their children more than life itself and would protect them at any cost! They also know how to have fun with their kids and I love that about my family.
