Henry

tumblr_mzwtuzrQbX1rfgmbqo5_1280 I’d like to take this time to say a few words about my dad Henry.  He hasn’t always been the ‘dad’ that I wanted but he has ALWAYS been there.  I’m his oldest child and only daughter so we have a special connection.

tumblr_m5ri4wfW501r6j6o7Regardless of sex/gender, I feel like a father plays a very important role in a child’s life.  They aren’t always the nurturer, but they are an important part of the foundation that our  youth develop from.  Like my mom, my dad played a great role in how I turned out as a woman.  I feel like I realize now, as an adult, how much more we have connected as I have grown.

My Dad and Mom and kid brothers…

I need to be more open and involved in my dad’s life.  I also should not wait for hallmark to remind me when I should show him my total appreciation.  It’s too bad that father’s day and mother’s day make recognizing our parents into a once a year thing.  Oh well, it is what it is, but no matter what, I’m grateful for his life and I’m blessed to be his daughter.

Peace
