A father is forever. No matter how old I get in my heart I will always be a daddy's girl. My dad will always be the one who filled my world with dreams of fantastic potential... he is the one who has captured my heart and all others (guys) have been measured by seance the day I realized I could not marry my dad. You have a spirit and a character all your own. You are a doer and a achiever of what you believe in. I'm so proud to be your daughter.
You are one of life's greatest gifts to me and I love you so very much.

I've had a day! Here is how I spent half of it. Yes those are staples in my head! Go it in the top of the head by my hatch-back! I'm OK just a little embarrassed. But what a story I have to tell!

This I Believe

Recently I was "pressured" into submitting a essay to the NPR program, "This I Believe". Wonder of wonders it was accepted and this pass week shared with the audience of the before named radio show. So I thought I would share it with those of you who are not NPR junkies.
"Beliefs are choices. No one has the rights over your personal beliefs. Your beliefs are in peril only when you don’t know what they are.
Understanding others beliefs comes from purposeful thought and enlightened discussions.
We live today in a world where most public dialogue is propelled by a dwindling number of multinational media corporations. By bypassing these overtly liberal gatekeepers we as a society can find common ground by communicating directly with one another.
Our beliefs rise from our common grass root heritage in a place where people listen to each other, one at a time.
I believe in listening. I hope that this one word could be a testament to me and my life. I listened to the beliefs of others.
Take a moment today and just consider the beliefs of others. These other beliefs may confirm your own or even challenge them. In listening there is also the possibility that your mind may be opened to something new and wonderful. When you are done listening, think about this… what do I believe?"

Because I Believe

My thoughts today are many and varied. The words of a song say them more clearly.

"I hear the mighty thunder as it echoes through the sky

I watch the moon and stars shinning in the night

All of gods creations great and small

Testify that he is over all

His wondrous truth burns in my soul

And with all my heart I want him to know

I will walk the road less traveled

I will rise when others fall

And I will be a witness of his truth

I will answer when he calls me

With a life that is pure and clean

And I'll prepare to stand before him

Because I believe... I believe... I believe..."

I do believe.. I remember all the promises he has made to me. But most of all I remember all the promises I made to him. I will remain true to his as he has always remained true to me.
