1000 Word Thursday



I love this picture. It's not a current picture, it's from our wedding in 2007, but it's one of my favorites from our whole wedding. This is me and my step-dad dancing during the father daughter dance. I know "step" relationships can be tense and stressed in some families. But I truly believe this man is an angel. After Dad died, I really didn't know what my sisters and I were going to do. We were so young and I just felt so empty. Then Mom met David...aka Daveo, Meatball, the Silver Fox...etc.. and our lives have never been the same. He's been everything a father is supposed to be and more. Most people don't see the side of him that us kids get to see. But he's funny, caring, loving, smart, and dedicated to whatever is in his heart. Over the course of the last 10 years, he's been there for me in more ways than I could ever count. He's helped me pick up the pieces several times when life has shattered around me. Never asking for anything in return...We danced to "Unsung Hero". It couldn't have been more perfect. So for the simple reason that I don't feel like I ever get a chance to give him the credit he deserves....here's my 1000 Word Thursday picture. Sorry for the long caption!

I see his funny side ever so often...after we've all banished our drinks from his room:) As for his caring side, how can you not see it? He'll come check on my kids b/c he has their older sibling and they've said something about them. Amazing! What a great story...picture!
