I Love My Dad...
When my mom passed away I hardly even two years old, so I don't remember anything about her. At the same time my dad had just graduated with his law degree from Harvard. It has only been me and my dad for years, and I respect him greatly. He had to juggle being a young lawyer as well as being a new single parent/father all at once, but never once did he make it unbalanced. We always spent time together, and we still do. I'm sixteen now. I'll proudly claim I am a daddy's girl. People tend to think it is odd when I say it is just me and my dad, most people think you need a mother, but my dad always made sure my mom was well incorporated in my life. We always visit her grave on mother's day and bring lilies since they were her favorite flowers. My dad keeps pictures of the years passing as we visit her grave watching as we age, and her grave stone stay the same. My dad never or maybe rarely dates, sometimes casually. Sometimes it makes me feel bad to think about him and if he ever feels alone, but when ever I try to speak of it he always gives me the same joke answer ---"I don't think I could deal with another woman in my life. It is hard enough to deal with you already"--- he really has to be one of the greatest dads in the world. I don't think I could have had a more perfect life then.
Now my life; although, took a horrible turn a little more than a week ago when I was raped, I won't waste time telling you the whole story (If you want to hear it, I posted it in another group, you can read it). It has really changed both our lives as we are starting to deal with what is going to be a long trial. I can feel how much the whole situation pains him when he thinks about it, and I never want him to blame any of it on himself, I don't want him to think he wasn't there for me, because it is the complete opposite, he has always been there for me. I want him to think that I am doing okay, even if I am not.
He is truly a amazing dad, and I love him. We will work through this hard time together.
I'll always love my dad.
