An Uptown Girl and her Father
You see how the girl in this picture looks like she genuinely happy to be spun around the dance floor by the best dad in the world? It’s because she is.
Daddy, thank you for making the best out of everything we ever had and for the countless singing and dancing sessions held in our living room.
Thank you for being so very serious and so very silly at the same time. I am grateful for your expectations and the high standards you held my siblings and me to. I am even more grateful that you have given me your support while I have taken those lessons and applied them to a non-traditional, unpredictable, and frenetic career path. All because you truly believe that I can do this.
Thank you for making our family vacations what they were and for making the stocking the best part of Christmas.
I think I can speak for Flaggie, Deiter, Cary Lances and Judy Goosan when I say, thank you to you and Mommy for opening your home up to all of our friends, new and old and for opening your arms and your hearts to the partners we all chose.
And thank you for that moment on my wedding day before you walked me down the aisle. I looked up at you before we headed out and said, “Thank you.” You just squeezed my hand, looked down at me and said, “No, thank you."
Thank you for making me feel nothing short of special and every bit an Uptown Girl.
I love you with all my heart.
PS- Thank you for storing that dresser in the garage for me for just a little while longer. ; )
