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.

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!
