Goodbye Daddy…

As some may have known from following my Twitter, my father has been fighting for a long time. This past week, he really had to start fighting and lost his battle this morning. I’m not really sure how to explain my “emotions” this morning but it is overwhelming.

My mom and grandparents raised me for most of my life (I was a foster child as well) so I never really knew my father. My first time actually talking to him was on my 18th birthday. I tried to reach out, not knowing what would come of it. He had alot of pain I think from not being around and I can only hope he knows that I do not hold any harsh feelings against him.

Dad, we might never had had the “Father daughter” moments that many had but that’s fine. Blood is thicker than water Daddy. We might not have had my 22 years together but I’m still glad we got those few moments. I’m not mad at you Dad. Please know that. I know you would have been here if you could. I know now that you are not hurting and I am so thankful that you don’t have to struggle now. Watch over me, Kelsie, and Aubrey.

I Love You Daddy.
