A day to celebrate our Father's! I got to take my dad to dinner & give him a few gifts that put a smile on his face. I always love spending time with my parents. I do feel blessed I have both my parents still here with me. Ricky misses his dad more than ever on Father's Day. He's been gone 17 years now. I can't imagine my life without either one of my parents. A life lesson I can put off learning about. I had to remind the girls in jr. high youth though that its always good to remember that our Heavenly Father is always to be celebrated - not just on Father's Day - and because He is our Father - what does that make us? Oh yeah - a PRINCESS, since our Father is the King of Kings! How can that not make us smile!
Ricky got to spend time with Lindsay who came over and made his favorite - no bake oatmeal cookies. I can see the traces of him in her all the time - especially when me and her got talking and I said, "Whats that sound" and she took off running to the oven forgetting she had butter on melting - (it was boiling) - yes, I saw Ricky and his ADD in that moment. There is a little bit of him in all 3 girls. Alaina and Julie gave their dad a ring on the phone since they're both out of towner's and it made his day to hear from all 3 of his babies. He had the best Fathers Day though because he got to see "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" last night with Lindsay. A super hero movie - nothing can make a day better for him!
So I hope all the dads out there felt honored and enjoyed their day. I know I love and appreciate my dad for everything he's done for me - always making me feel like his baby girl no matter what age I am. Always treating me like the Princess!
