My Daddy’s 76th Birthday is TODAY!

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about my family….I guess I realizing more and more how quickly time flies by…And…I chose when I went away from home to Arizona for college that I needed to find out who I was and where my place was in the world without any audience or influences…I was very easily led when I was younger and I knew as much as I loved ALL of my family that I wouldn’t be able to grow unless I was completely alone in a place where I knew no one…

This doesn’t mean my folks weren’t there for me they were and are…but for some reason years get in between us because I get so busy and do not fly anymore….And, my mom and her husband live in Charleston SC and my Dad and his wife live in San Diego CA…so they are not exactly close by….

Anyway, where I am going with this is….TIME FLIES!

It’s my Daddy’s 76th Birthday!  I need to see all of you more !!!! I promise to make a greater  effort to do so!

My Dad….He is the reason I have my own business…He has always made me feel SPECIAL SIGNIFICANT SMART BEAUTIFUL and MOST OF ALL like I am capable of doing ANYTHING I can dream up! He is a dreamer-my FAVORITE dreamer in all the world! But not just a dreamer he is A DOER! He has taught me how to gracefully handle failure and ALWAYS turn in into something else! That’s why failing doesn’t scare me and why expressing myself and what’s in my heart has always felt so right to me…Because I have ALWAYS known he would love me anyway NO MATTER WHAT! How many people can you REALLY say this about and MEAN IT!  I am the luckiest woman and little girl in the WORLD because of my Daddy! I love you Daddy with all of my heart !!! I wish I were with you today to CELEBRATE with you and eat some Rocky Road ice cream! Thank you for the life I have “because you loved me”!
