Wordless | The Accident

9 years ago today I almost lost my dad. Almost. And I can remember every single detail of that day. Like those that experience tragedy often do.

If you haven't had a chance to read his amazing story, please do. It's worth your time, I promise.

So today, 9 whole years later, I am thankful to have him in our lives. To have had him walk me down the aisle and dance with me at my wedding. To have him as an amazing father and grandfather to my children. To have him celebrate all the holidays and births, good times and bad. I am so thankful.

You're my hero dad and I love you more than you will ever know.



And I promise you a real post soon. Things are a bit crazy right now, but there are so many things I want/need to blog about....so? Soon, okay? =)

I have read your previous posts about your dad and I can't help but read them again. You are so blessed to have such an amazing father in your life. I don't have a father in my life so reading stories like this makes me so glad for my hubby. Thanks for sharing {again!}
