The day we celebrate dads and stepdads. Not everyone has the luxury of having their biological father raise them. This is why stepdads and stepmoms are important too.
I was blessed to have my dad in my life. I grew up a daddy’s girl. Wherever my dad was….I was right there! If he was out working on his ’66 Ford Mustang (which I LOVED) or working a side job…I wanted to be by his side. To me my daddy hung the moon. There’s a saying that says daddy’s are their sons first hero and their daughters first love. This was definitely true for me.
I wish that every child could experience having a good daddy. It is heartbreaking to hear stories of those who never knew their dad or their dad walked out on their family.
My dad was young when I was born. I was blessed to have two parents who loved me dearly. Even though my dad was young he stood up and took care of us. He could have easily decided he wanted to be a typical teenager.
Now as an adult I have turned into my dad
….which is very scary haha. My family will say, “Calm down now Roger!”
We both have very strong personalities, are opinionated, and like to be right. Having us in the same room for too long is torture for other people. We’ve had our moments but I wouldn’t trade my daddy for anything in this world.
Sadly my dad lives three hours away so I don’t get to see him as often as I’d like. This year we changed that! We planned our family vacation around Father’s Day.
No matter if you and your dad (or stepdad) get along or not….he’s the only one you have. Love him…tell him you appreciate him. Dad’s make sacrifices in their lives for their kids. We don’t always know what they do for us.
Happy Father’s Day Dad!
