Time for the next Very Important Person in my life...my Daddy.
I had a terrible night last night and day today, so I decided to drive home, because it always makes me feel better. No matter what is going on in my life, my Dad always knows how to make me feel better. For instance, he knows when not to bring up what is REALLY bothering me, because he knows I don't want to talk about it. Instead, he tries to find ways to get my mind off things and make me laugh. When I got home today he had dinner waiting on me, and was constantly asking me questions about school and reminding me I am ALMOST officially in medical school. That's just what I needed. Not the same old same old "What's wrong with you, what happened?" etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm so thankful for everyone who has checked up on me over the past 24 hours. You all mean more to me than you could ever imagine and I love you all!!
A lot of people don't know how to take my Dad, because he is strong-willed...he has a temper...and he's not afraid to stand up for what he believes is right. He tells you what he thinks and doesn't try to sugar coat it. But anyone that TRULY knows him knows that my Dad would bend over backwards and do ANYTHING for the people who are important to him. He has devoted COUNTLESS hours of his time unselfishly to our family, school, work, friends, among other things. He is also one of the most generous people I know. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it...and everyone that truly knows him loves him for who he is.
I believe whole-heartedly that I would not be where I am today if it weren't for my Dad. He has always pushed me to do my absolute best, in sports, school, and life, because he knows what I am capable of. My parents were a little strict during high school, but looking back now I know that they only did it for my own good. It's amazing as you get older, you realize nearly everything your parents told you was right. Because when push comes to shove, they only have your best interest at heart.
People say that sometimes the only person a girl can trust with her heart is her Daddy...and if that's true then I think mine is in very safe keeping. <3
