My Dad is flying in to see us this weekend. I picked him as "Someone You Should Know" because if you could meet him you'd like him! He's also done alot of things for me in my life and this Blog is way too small to mention them all.
First of all he took a very big chance with me! You see I was a foster child and they thought they were getting a younger girl. When I showed up I was 14 and a Freshman in High school. YIKES!
I really didn't have a good impression of what a Dad should be. I can honestly say that he turned that around for me. Thought the world of me and held up some standards of living for me that I'd never been exposed to before. Besides that he was a hard worker, cared about his family, and took us places, I knew that he loved me. I have so many fond memories of having ketchup squirted all over me, hot water turned off while I was showering and tickle fests, just to name a few! All things I needed! When I was ready to be married he walked me down the aisle. It was through his love and caring for me that made it easy to accept my Heavenly Father.
He's been through alot of medical stuff the last few years and it is so good to see him finally feeling better!
So he's coming today and I get to pick him up! Mom is staying behind - SCRAPBOOKING she's taken over the whole living room with a table and supplies! I seriously thought about just switching places with him and spending the weekend scrapbooking - but then I'd miss seeing Him too!
One day we are going to scrapbook for days on end Mom even if I have to ship all my stuff to your house before I get there!
