For my Dad

Happy late Father's Day Daddy!! I'm never on time, even when I was born, I was a couple weeks late.. So this is totally acceptable (:

Doing my 10 page research paper I learned a LOT about how much parental involvement effects children, not only through my research of articles and books, but even from personal experience. I don't know where I'd be without my Dad. He was my best friend growing up, I looked up to him in everything he did, and he was my hero. We never had a whole lot growing up, but I didn't even notice it. Maybe it was because I'm the youngest and was happy with having nothing but my life-size Barney, but I remember how much fun I had with my Dad, how he tried so hard to do my hair in the mornings, and yanno what? He did a DANG good job! He spent his work days working his butt off to provide the best for his kids, even if it was doing a job that he hated. I don't remember much from my childhood, and I'm not sure why, but the things I do remember I'll keep with me forever. The sacrifice and love my Dad gave for me and my siblings was unlike anything I've ever seen, and I will always appreciate it more than I'll ever be able to show. I've never seen anything but the best in my Dad, and I wish he could see himself like I do. He deserves so much more than he lets himself believe.

Daddy, I love you so much! I wish we lived in the same state so I could see more of you, but thank goodness for technology, right? Don't worry about me growing up and starting my own family.. I'll always be your little girl (:
