Happy Birthday Daddy

Filed under: Family, My Life, Self Pity — happychick @ 6.38p08

Tomorrow would have been my Dad’s 43rd Birthday. It’s just going to be a short post. Talking about it again and again is a waste of my breath, and will only end up with me losing valuble bodily fluids. 🙂

He was a good man. Like all humans, he made mistakes. Some of them bloody whoppers. But he was a good father. And a kind man. He passed on a few of his good traits to me and my brother, and, as expected, a few of his bad (can anyone spell TEMPER?) But he was everything to me. And he was everything I could have ever asked for in a father. The fact that he will not be there to walk me down the aisle, to be the grand-dad of my kids, will haunt me forever. But one cannot expect life to be fair- it almost always isn’t.

So to my Daddy- Happy Birthday. Rest In Peace, and may the Lord look over you.

  1. A co-worker told me the other day that he has stopped grieving for his dad….that he is just grateful that he had one.

    I haven’t got to that place yet. I still miss mine terribly and probally always will.

    And may the Lord look over you too chick.

  2. Oh honey, he’ll be there when you walk down the aisle. He’ll be there when you are raising your children. He’ll be there as long as you want him to be there. You will pass things down from him to your children. Because you loved him, and still do, you’ll take him everywhere with you. To bad more people couldn’t have been the kind of father he was to have left behind such an everlasting positive loving impression. One that will pass down generations, over and over again. You are one lucky chick, present tense cause you still are, and he was one lucky papa.

  3. For making this blog (well, mostly for how you made it and what you put in it), I forgive you for your imperfection. I’m sorry that your dad died.
