Father’s Day is this weekend, party people! So naturally I wanted to take this opportunity to wish my sweet dad, Mike, a Happy Father’s Day. He’s too hip to be square! And check out this picture, courtesy of my Auntie Cindy:
What a hoot! (My dad is on the right.) I can’t decide if I hear banjos playing when I look at this “old school” picture or Lynyrd Skynyrd’s, “Free Bird.” (Or “Goin’ Courtin'” from Seven Brides For Seven Brothers!) It’s a great photo. And you know what? My dad is a great dad! I have learned so much from
him over the years and fully respect his goodness, his selflessness, and his fun-loving, kind-hearted nature. Here’s a list of a few (of many) things I have learned from my dad:
10.) Something extraordinary happens when a grown woman hugs and kisses her beloved dad. Her little girl self–tucked away deep down inside–resurfaces. She reminds her woman self of all the “My Little Ponies” her dad brought her upon returning from out-of-town business trips. The little
girl reminds the woman of the hours spent at the kitchen table working on math problems and biology assignments; of quality time spent together, lessons learned, and conversations shared.
Much Love and Peace~
Mama Leisha and Ruthie
