My Daddy's 1st anniversary in heaven....

Thursday, September 18, 2008

Today last year was the worst day of my life...I got a phone call telling me my dad had died. What a huge hole in my heart I have had ever since. I miss him so much. Please everyone keep me in your prayers as this has been such a tough time for me since I was daddy's lil girl.


Dad, you're my hero.....in so many ways
And I am so grateful to you
I have such a respect for the man that you are,
And the kind-hearted things that you do.

You have a heart "as big as an ocean"
A "soft side" you don't often show,
All of your life you worked for your family,
You taught me and helped me to grow.

You were the man I knew I could lean on,
Who fostered a strong sense of pride,
The father who gave me his love and affection,
And always remained by my side.

All of my life, Dad, I will be thankful,
That I had a father...so true...
I never had to search for a hero,
The hero in my life was you.

This poem and my weight loss is dedicated to my wonderful dad who died from heart disease one yr ago today...I love and miss you daddy.... emoticon

    I can't image your pain. My dad is my hero and my rock. He has always been there, even when the decisions I've made hurt him. I tell him I love him every chance I get because I know that life is short.

    Hey, I just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I also was daddy's girl and my dad passed away a little over a year ago (July 2007). I know exactly what you mean when you say that this last year was the worst of your life... I am in the exact same boat. Hopefully it will get a little easier for both of us with time.

    I can barely read your blog w/out tearing up myself! I am a daddy's girl myself, and living 1500 miles aways from him is hard enough, I'm so inspired by you that you got through this entire year!! If you need to talk just let me know!! God Bless!
