Well… At least it\’s not blogger…..

Happy father’s day!

I rememeber the day she was born…. I broke down and cried… I was so happy… I created this beautiful little girl… so tiny… so helpless… so dependent on me for everything… I had to step up… had to become something… I was no longer able to live off of life at the convience store.

Anyway- The first year… I got a “real” job plus went to school full time… I was out of the house from around 5am and wouldn’t get home till after 11pm Monday thru thurs… No school on Friday so actually got to pretend I was human- and the weekends I had off… I knew my little girl deserved more than what I used to be… that I had to step up and be the best daddy I could….

She’s pretty spoiled… to the point that even she thinks she has too many toys. (That’s mostly not my fault)… But she has a great head on her shoulders… She knows what is right… she knows God is there for her thru anything…

I thought the divorce would screw her up… she bounces back and forth every week between my house and her mom’s… She knows the rules are different in both places, and she knows what she can and can’t get away with… she handles it better than I ever thought she could… She knows she is loved…

My baby girl is 7 years old already… It freaks me out… I still see the little baby that depended on me for everything, and this big girl who can do everything for herself pops up….

I want to be the best daddy that I can- And I thank God for the chance…
I love my little Angel… Happy Father’s Day. Thank you God for giving me this opportunity… It changed my life… It made me a better person…

I would not trade a moment of it for the world!

  10. There’s an old saying, I think, that goes “Man who wear heart on sleeve deserve Happy Father Day.” Or it could be something I just made up.
