March 15th was my dad's 54th Birthday. Can you believe that I talked to him yesterday but compeletly forgot to actually tell him Happy Birthday? We had a party for him on Sunday so it's not like I completely forgot him!
This is a picture of me and my dad dancing at my wedding. We danced to the song "Cinderella" by Steven Curttis Chapman. My cousin learned the song in a week and played it on his guitar. That made it even more special.
I only cried twice at my wedding-when my dad walked me down the aisle and when we had our daddy-daughter dance. My dad and I are so much alike that we often get on each other's nerves. But I am still a daddy's girl and it was such an emotional time for both of us.
My dad has taught me some very valuable things throughout my life. He taught me how to be a hard worker, not to be a quitter, to save my money when I can, to love my family and be the best person I can be. I am so proud to call this man my dad. His name is Jody (my grandma named him after the little boy from the move The Yearling...it was just a few years later that Jody became more common as a girls name!) and I love him with all my heart. Happy Birthday Dad-thank you for giving me life and loving me always!
