Daddy , A Daughter's First Love

This past Father's Day, I gladly celebrated it with my bonus daughter and niece as we doted on and lavished Mr. Awesome with lots of appreciation for his role in our lives and to let him know how much we love him.  Although we celebrated him on this day, I could not help but to reminisce of my own father who passed away over eight years ago.  I wished very much that I could call him and tell him that I am very thankful that he was in my life and that he never left my brother or I to wonder where he was or if he was coming home.  The older that I get and the more people that I meet in life who suffer from wounds that stem from an absent father,  I realize how blessed I was to have him as a dad.  He was not perfect and neither was our life, but I stand thankful for always being able to say that I had an active father in my life.

     As they say, a dad is his daughter's first love.  He is the one who gives her a standard of what a man, father, and husband should look like.…

Family Vacation!!

This year, we decided to take a family vacation to visit Mickey and Minnie Mouse in Orlando.  I hadn't been since I was a senior in high school, so this trip was a treat.  We went with some great friends and between the adults and the children, we had a blast.  One of the things that made this pricey trip become priceless was the look on the children's faces when we arrived (although the older ones found out before the trip) .  Take a glimpse at some of the things that we did.
