papa




i got a text message from this guy {my dad} today. he usually texts me every day, but this one was different. one i want to remember. forever.


"the absolute best part of your life is almost here. savor and enjoy every moment you have with the boy. the day will come all too quickly when he will be off to college or a mission and finally gone from your house for good. i wish i had a time machine to go back to 1981 so i could be with and raise my beautiful girls all over again. i would love that. i love my wog."


i have read and re-read this several times throughout the day.  if this doesn't make a 7 month pregnant lady bawl, i don't know what will.


gosh, i love him.

Man... I'm not pregnant and that's not even my dad and I shed a tear. I love your dad too, he is great, and this is surely great advice.

FINALLY! Someone who encouraging this whole thing! If I had a dime for every person who gave me that "Oh you are so in for the biggest shock of your life, good luck sucker" look. And those are the people who don't just say it out loud. Loved this!!

That is so sweet!! I love your Dad! I still remember driving home from volleyball with your Dad and both of us in the front seat of his little Miata! What a great Dad you have.

This made me cry. You have such a wonderful dad. I'm sure your kids are going to feel how much you adore them the same way your dad shows you his love and adoration.
