My Father’s Love

My view right now as I write to you all...I am at peace...

My view right now as I write to you all…I am at peace…

 

Today, I am writing as I overlook the lake from my sister’s balcony in Midway, Georgia.. This Father’s Day, I decided to leave all the stress behind and take a trip with my father (to see my sister,who lives in a quiet condominium on the water). There is always something calming about my father’s presence. He seems to put every one around him at ease (and I do envy that naturally outgoing nature of his. I am fortunate to always have been close to my father. Ever since I could remember, I anticipated my dates with my Father. I still remember getting dressed up so he could take me to the “round Holiday Inn” in Charleston, when I was but 2 or 3. So, I guess today I am thankful I always had a father, who made me feel warm and safe and loved and valued. There were many times I disappointed him and went my own way, but I am thankful he let me make my own mistakes so I could learn. And when I fell after making those mistakes, he was always there to pick me back up again and tell me to try again. My father always has taught me to keep on going even when the going gets rough. I am thankful that his consistent pushing brought me to where I am now. The pushing and prodding wasn’t always appreciated at the time, but it has brought me forward to the place I need to be. I could say so much more, but guess I can sum up with the thought that I am proud I will always be Daddy’s little girl…
