Letter 28…

To Someone that Changed My Life… The man that gave me life… my Daddy.

I was 4. I was posin’ and I still pose at 4aaahhh... 35ish! My daddy was 21.

Thank You Daddy for teaching me to be fearless.
For teaching me to keep my mouth shut at the all the right times and not making a scene.
For teaching me to be ON TIME... and way too early to any and all commitments.
For teaching me that if I do something, do it right.
For teaching me that if I say I'm going to do something, that I do it.
For sheltering me from my mother.
For being the best parent this kid had.
For making me the person that I am despite what that woman did to me.

And I miss him so much.

A lovely tribute from a loving daughter who lost her daddy too soon.
