Today is a special day! My Daddy turned the big 5-0!
I’ve spent the past few days sad because I couldn’t be home to see him today. We did Skype together this morning, so I did get to see his face. But that’s not the same as being there. Days like this make me miss Georgia.
I figured cooking would help cheer me up some, so I headed to the kitchen to make something that reminded me of my Dad. I opened the refrigerator and instantly knew what it would be.
When I lived at home, my Dad would eat dinner, and 30 minutes later, he would be rummaging through the kitchen looking for something else to eat. Nothing is safe when my Dad goes for his after dinner snack, but Peanut Butter and Jelly was always a common choice. He’s talked me into many post dinner PB&J’s sandwiches over the years. Last year, I actually sent him Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies for his birthday.
Growing up I’ve always been a Daddy’s girl. I think it’s because we have similar personalities. We’re both laid back. I’d say I’m the most laid back/passive person in my family.
I’m lucky to have a dad that has always been there. He worked hard, so we could have a great life. He did an amazing job taking care of her when she was sick. He loves my mom. He lived with three woman and didn’t go crazy.
I know everyone says this, but I have the greatest Daddy in the world! I’m not sure what I did to deserve two amazing parents.
Happy Birthday Daddy. I love you and miss you!
