Happy Father's Day

I was just cruising blogland and read a post my friend Diana wrote about her dad; this prompted me to write one as well. I don't have any photos handy but want to share about the man who meant so much to me.
Dad was 45 when I was born; he often said that I was the light in his life.  My sister and brother were in their teens and I was his little princess.  From a very early age, he was my hero, my Prince and my heart was his.  I remember him teaching me how to skip and ride my bike.  I well remember the times he took me to the babysitters and I would cling to his leg, sobbing and not wanting to be left.  He spoiled me rotten and soothed my tears.  I never wanted to disappoint him but when I hit high school, I well remember having major differences-we were taught alot of socialism in the public school I attended and dad could not tolerate most of it.  He would always write me little notes each day, telling me to have a good day and how much he loved me.  I know those times when I got angry with him hurt him, but he always wrote notes to try to smoothe things over.  He saw me married and happy; with two little girls that adored him.  A strong Irish Catholic with an incredible sense of humor and he loved to tell stories. 
Oh how I miss him but I rest knowing he is in heaven and I will see him again.  He would love seeing his granddaughters and also his great grandchildren.  I was blessed beyond measure by my dad.
Happy Father's Day Da.
Love, your baby girl.


  1. Awww...What a sweet post. I can tell you were a Daddy's girl. My friend, Tete, who knows me quite well always says that my Dad will be the one to come to greet me and usher me into the kingdom. I hope she is right- xo Diana

  2. You write about a beautiful relationship with a loving dad, and I was blessed to have the same nurturing dad. Yes, we live in hope to be reunited in heaven one day. May the circle be unbroken, by and by Lord, by and by.

  3. Sounds like your dad was a pretty great guy!

    Your friends,

    Murphy and Stanley

  4. Oh what a sweet tribute. Your father sounds like a special papa. My mother's dad was in his forties when she was born and so I think that you little princesses had it pretty good with your adoring dads.

  5. What a sweet tribute to your dad. Thanks for sharing that.

  6. What a sweet tribute, and what a blessed girl.
