My Dad My Dad

My Dad

 I wrote this four years ago and nothing has changed about how I feel about my Dad, nor will it...........
My Dad! I can hardly think of him without getting big tears in my eyes. He is no longer with us, he died at a very young age (47). The tears I shed are sometimes for sadness, but other times for joy.

He was a man among men as far as I was concerned. We were raised to pretty much think he could walk on water. 
I actually thought I was going to marry him until I turned 10yrs old, and I found out that was not done.
On my actual wedding day after he walked me down the aisle he sat down, and took out his hanky and boo-hooed, my Mom had to console him.

 I wish the pictures were in color, he had the most amazing sparkly blue eyes.
I remember how hard my Dad worked and what a wonderful provider he was for his family.What I remember above all was how much he loved his family. 
Daddy spoke with his eyes, they could laugh without making a sound. He had the most beautiful twinkly blue eyes.
I would love to watch my Dad look at my Mom, and her look back at him. Not a word was spoken, but you knew without a doubt  they loved each other. 
That gives a child so much security to see how their parents love each other and boy did my parents love each other.
My Dad made me feel loved, and protected. I knew Daddy would fix it if anything would go wrong. I knew I was beautiful in his eyes.
 He put a penny in my shoe and helped me with my garter. I remember when my oldest son had his daughter (who is the most precious little girl alive) I watched as he leaned over the isolette, and he bowed his head. 
I asked him later was he praying, and he told me , ?I am a blessed man, I was thanking God!" I knew then and there that he was going to love his little girl just like my Dad loved me.
I told my son that day.....  
"You know you will be her first mirror. She will see herself through your eyes." 
Now how did I know that" Because I saw myself through my Dads eyes. I knew I was worth loving because he showed me unconditional love. 
So when it came time to choose a husband I knew without a doubt that I had  met the right one. 
We have been married over forty three years now. I fell in love with him when I was only sixteen yrs old so I have loved him for 47 years.
So you see because my Dad loved me like no one else could, and took such wonderful care of me, I have learned to expect the best in a man. 
In my opinion I got the best in the man that I have been married to for 43 years.
I guess in my heart I will always be Daddy?s little girl, I kind of like that. 
Even though he is no longer here to give me hugs he is with me in spirit, and his love will be with me forever. That is what I call a wonderful example of a Dad!!
 "Enjoy the Process" Of:Telling the Dad's in your lif...
