I never was one of those girls who needed a boyfriend to make me feel worthy or beautiful. I truthfully didn't date many guys before Chris..I think that's because of you. With all humbleness, you never made me feel less than you world. I am the apple of your eye, which I might have used to my advantage a time or two.. I have been blessed beyond measure to have you as my father and now of my dearest best friends. I look up to you with unwavering admiration. You provided a childhood filled with endless possibilites. I know with hard work I can make anything happen in this life. I owe that to you. When the possibility of marriage came up with Chris, my thoughts immediately flashed back to my childhood & you, the kind of father and man you are. You had shoes that not just any person could fill, it would take someone special. Chris was the first guy I thought had a chance. As time went on, I knew he would be a wonderful father, provider, & husband .. I saw a glimpse of you dad. You gave me a beautiful childhood something that has shaped my adult life, something I hope to provide to my own little people some day. You dad, have shaped me. To know you are proud of me is a feeling that goes beyond words. Thank you for talking sense into me when I need most but also embracing my wildest dreams. You will always have my heart, no matter what I do or where I go, you will be with me.
