10 years ago today…..

My daddy lost his battle with cancer. It was a long, hard fight, and he never gave up. Eventually, it just became too much for his body to handle, and God called him home.

I was 19, had just had a baby, and my daddy was the most important man in my life. Losing him was the hardest thing I have ever faced.

I still miss him every single day. As my kids get bigger, it gets harder, wishing that he were here to see all of their accomplishments. I know he’d be so proud of them.

Today, Ashley and I got baptized. What a sweet way to remember this day. We were baptized together… in a local creek, mind you, but it was one of the most awesome experiences of my life.

You can see the pictures of the baptism here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=37088&l=aae08&id=652316746

And, yes, I did end up looking like Shamu, but I think God will bless me for the fact that this city girl put her body into a dirty old creek! 🙂

Thanks for looking!

    I think when you loose someone who is so important and influential in your life you never really get over it. You just cope with it. You said it gets harder as your kids get older. I know how that feels. We lost my mother in law to cancer when I was pregnant with my youngest son and my oldest was only 5. It is heartbreaking for me to think of all the things that have happened that she was not here for. I feel for you. ((hugs))
