As a young girl, I sure loved my dad. I always laugh because I know I was the son he never had. I think that is why I am such a sports fanatic. I was the one who would read the sports page and talk to my dad about it. He was a huge Giants fan, and yes, that has rubbed off on me ; )
When my mom and dad died, I was blessed to go the home of a great man and his wife. He taught me so much. I will never forget him pulling me aside when I was a young adult and telling me that I "talked like a truck driver". (And he was right) I appreciated him being willing to try and help me improve. (I had to use this picture because that is little Miss Heidi--who will be going in for surgery tomorrow and she is in my heart and my prayers today. I will be very relieved to hear when she is out of surgery tomorrow)
And, of course, I have this fabulous man who married me. WOW, AM I LUCKY. He is incredible. I am grateful my children have his amazing example--and so do I. Now I have to add that I know he was taught by a fabulous dad.
