An ode to the Fathers

Happy Father's day!!! 

Today is a day that I remember the father that have and the dad that stepped into my life years ago that God needed back. 

This is my father. I love him very much. He was there to walk me down the aisle. He wasn't always super involved with my life, but over the past 6 years he has been. I'm so thankful that that, we continue to build a relationship every day. 

This man is known as my Godfather. He is not actually my godfather, but God sure did bring him in my life when I needed him the most. I met him when I was 14 years old. My life before him was rocky, unstable and lacked serious direction. He came in and turned my life around in ways I wouldn't understand until much later in my life. He taught me to make sure that I stayed aware of the things going on around me. That I couldn't always control what happened around me, but I could control the way I reacted. In the Fall of 2006, God needed him back. I was 18. His earthly presence was in my life for four years, but those years mattered the most. I never felt more love in my entire life than in those years. I still feel him everyday. I love him and I know he watches over me. I promise to write more about him. He will always be my dad. 

This is my ode to the fathers. 


What are you doing for father's day?!

Do you have someone who stepped in as a dad when they didn't have to?
