I remember being a high school kid or so, and my mama saying she worried we wouldn't find a man as good as our daddy to marry. So far, she's been right. My dad is larger than life because he's one in a million.
Valentine's Day is one of those ways I can prove he's amazing. Valentine's Day as a single girl can downright suck. But for me, my dad has always been my Valentine, so I'm never left out from the hoopla. I always have a very thoughtful, sincere, handpicked Valentine and a heart of chocolate candy. Always. And at 35, I still have a special Valentine's Day card and candy waiting for me at my parents' house.
This year's card was perfect - one of those cards that brings tears to your eyes. I know how he searches and searches for the JUST RIGHT card for each of us (mom, Katie and me) and he's always right on the money. It's definitely something he takes his time with and puts so much thought and consideration into - and you can always tell.
So until I can find a guy that can sum me up in a Valentine, I guess I'll just remain single. :)
Happy Valentine's Day - to all of you out there! :) And thanks to the best Daddy in the world - MINE!
