I have to say, that I am pretty lucky in the father department. Not only do I have my Daddy, but I have a pretty awesome step-dad too. In the past 10 years Brian and my mom have been married, Brian has been there for me in ways I never expected. I am not his biological daughter; he didn't even meet me officially until after he and my mom were married! He has no obligation to support me and my goals, yet he stepped up to play the father role in my life when my Dad checked out. I can't tell you how much I appreciate Brian's generosity and guidance, and I couldn't ask for a better man for my mom. I Love you, Brian.
Normally, Father's Day is reserved for that special guy you call Dad. But, for a long time, I only had my mom. She played both roles. My brothers and I (especially me during my teenage years) gave her hell, but she never left, she never gave up, and she always made me feel loved. She gave us the best life possible on a single mom salary, and with dads that came and went as they pleased. She was, and still is, our rock. She is home. I Love you, Mommy.
Happy Father's Day!
