The Daddy’s

I am blessed to have an amazing Daddy.  My Daddy was an orphan and because of that family was so important to him.  He worked hard, sometimes two jobs,  to provide for my mom and I.  He helped out around the house by doing most of the cooking and other chores. Richard Thomas O'Leary, Shanna Marie O'Leary, undated He made sure to tell me that he loved me often.  He would also tell me that he was proud of me.  At his wake there were people there that I didn’t know but they knew about me.  They knew that I had graduated from college, had lived in Asia and was married and living in Seattle because my Daddy was always talking about me.  He just wanted to share with everyone what I was doing because he was so proud.  He also told me I was beautiful on a regular basis.  I’m glad he told me these three things often because even though he’s not here anymore I know that they are still true. 

Thanks Daddy, for being an example of what a dad should be.  I love and miss you lots!

I’m thankful I had a great example of what an amazing daddy is.  Not only do I have an amazing daddy, I live with one.  daddy snuggleMy husband is an amazing daddy.  He’s like my dad in so many ways and this is one of them.  He loves his daughter so much.  He works hard to provide for us.  He loves spending time with her.  Whenever I need some “me” time he is more than willing to keep the kiddo (and he doesn’t babysit…he parents!)  He’ll take her with him to an AA meeting, to go shopping at Home Depot and anywhere else he needs/wants to go.  She loves it when daddy comes home and lights up when he walking in the door.  Munchkin loves to get daddy snuggles too.  She’s a daddy’s girl.

Happy Father’s Day Baby.  We love you lots!
