Last Tuesday, I wrote about my “one word of the day” that I’m recording in my writer’s notebook. Today, as I thought about the word that best described my day, I immediately chose “Remembering.” Today would have been my Dad’s 83rd birthday and I’ve thought about him throughout the day and all of the birthdays that we spent together. While it’s been sixteen years since his passing, it still feels like it was just last week. He was such an incredible dad and every time someone used #girldad in the wake of Kobe Bryant’s death, I always thought of my Dad. He loved being a #girldad and I always knew how much he loved being my father and how much he loved me. Happy Birthday, Daddy!
