my Pop


I told you this month was busy 
(and it is.)
I didn't tell you that a lot of big 
(and not really good) 
things are going on this month.

Tonight, at 10:04 PM my Dad called to say good night.
I was discouraged about a few things, and I cried.
Before I knew what was happening,
my Mom was on the phone.
She said my Dad had just left.
He came over to see us.
At 10:24 he came in the house.
(It takes me about 40 minutes to get to their farm.)
He came in and he told us how much he loved us.
He gave us some hugs.
He made everything better.

I know I have told you before and
I know I will say it again,
but I really have the very best Dad in the whole world.
I hope you have one too.
Here's to happier Tuesdays.

Big, big hugs to you, B. I'm sorry to hear that things are a bit tough right now. Hang in there.

SO glad you have your dad is YOUR dad. What a blessing.

That is so special of him. I hope you're doing okay. My father made the choice in the last year to not be involved at all in my or my sister's lives and I am so happy when I see that other people have that special connection!

How precious of your dad Becky to just show up. To be there. Makes me wish I lived close to my folks. Praying for you. Hope whatever it is will be alright.

That is the perfect story! What a precious daddy you have!

She Writes Here Now said...

I can't begin imagine what my life would have been with a dad who loved me. How many mistakes that I may not have made with a strong man who really cared about my well being is hard to comprehend. I am so glad to hear stories like yours. I am so very glad your dad knows how to be a daddy. It gives us all hope that can't even be expressed.

I am sorry things aren't going well :(. Take deep comfort in your family. You are blessed.

Jade @ Tasting Grace said...

Ohh how sweet!! I'm sorry you were having a tough time, but what a fabulous daddy you have. I'm a daddy's girl too...and I think there's nothing more precious in this world than a solid father-daughter love.

Skeller said...

I pray today is a better day. And God bless your Dad - he's the best. (next to my dad, that is! grin).

Christina said...

I'm so sorry about the tough times, but that is such a precious story about your dad. Hope these next days are better.
