My Daddy...Happy Father's Day

Hello, Friends!

Happy Father's Day! I hope that you've spent time with your loved ones today. 

I wanted to share a little with you about the man that I call "Daddy". 

My Daddy's name is James. Most people call him Jimmy. I was always daddy's little girl. He was my first love, the man who tried to teach me how to drive, and the man that gave me away at my wedding.

First, I love my daddy. We have been through a lot together. We've had our ups and downs like everyone else. 

Times got really rough for us when I was a senior in high school. My daddy was told that he'd only have a year at the most to live. His brain was the size and age of a 60 year old. He was only in his early 40's. He is still living today! This took a toll on him. He began to take depression medication. That's when everything went down hill. I don't want to share the things that we went through. They are too painful. Long story short, he moved back in with his momma (my grandma). He stopped drinking, stopped taking his depression medication, and became a better person.

I am so thankful that he is still alive. I am thankful that God helped get him out of the funk he was in. 

He is a wonderful father. He is an even better grandfather. We are lucky to have him in our life.

Happy Father's Day, Daddy. I love you!
