May 23rd – additional post
This one’s for you, Daddy. I love you.
After I posted the Thursday’s child posting this morning, I received a text from my dad, saying I’m still the perfect daughter.
My dad didn’t agree with how I handled the mess that was Tuesday. He told me that if I had turned left instead of right, I wouldn’t have had the repercussions, but what was done, was done.
I understand his view, although I could not have done it his way. (I did not expect the repercussions, yet from years of learning diplomacy, begun from my father, I was able to keep my equanimity when confronted with them.)
My father understands that we come from different perspectives. His main concern was that I not suffer repercussions, as he worries about me. I love my dad.
He wouldn’t change who I am. He takes my author cards, my booklists, and promotes them to everyone he can think of. He is one of my biggest fans. He lets me know how proud he is of me all the time. I am so blessed he is part of my life.
