I wonder if people who have dad's like this can ever REALLY know how blessed they are. You certainly are. I can't even wrap my brain around what it would feel like for my dad to comment on my hair, much less acknowledge my existence and notice me! Yes, you are very fortunate.

I'm ashamed to say that it took me entirely too long to know the blessing I have in my dad. But I do know now and thank God for him everyday.


P.S. I've learned how to share my mom, so I'm willing to learn to share my dad too! :)

Joanne - today is my Dad's birthday - he would have been 72. He has been with God for 14 years. He has been on my mind all day and I just had time to look in my email and I see your posting And it is a posting about your Dad. It was a special reminder to me of how wonderful a father's love is. Thank you. Kim


This is just like something my dad would do and say. He is always telling my sister and I (she's 46 and I'm 48) that we are the most beautiful women he knows, along with our mom. It doesn't matter how fat, skinny, preggers, broken out we might be/look, he always says it at just the right time. And you know what...he truly believes it!

Love you, girl.



Awww. I wonder if Dad likes my hair?? Probably not so much right now because I'm desperate for a cut right now. :)

What a BLESSED woman you are!!
