"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Because Her Father Loved Her
I didn't have time to do a post this
and I wanted to make sure
and give a tribute to my hubby,
the wonderful father to
These special words were on a
card he received from our daughter yesterday
and it describes Him so well.
Because her father listened to her,
she knew she had something to say.
Because he believed in her,
she believed in herself.
Because he said she could do anything,
of the good stuff in my life
started with you.
Well, as you might well imagine,
I found him all choked up and teary eyed
right after he read those words that
honored him so.
When our daughters were 4 years old
he began taking each one of them out
to breakfast every other Saturday,
on what became known
and looked forward to
as the Daddy/Daughter Dates.
We have two daughters, so
they each went on a special date
with him once a month.
Our daughters are now 28 and 30 years
old and they still talk about these
special times they spent
with their dad.
I would have given anything as a young
girl to have had a father that would have wanted to spend time with me, so my hubby blessed me too when he poured into our daughters this way.
