I was so proud of this dad today! I am so hopeful that our country and the world will come together and unite in peaceful ways. I am so proud to be an American today. I love this picture of President Obama as he embraces his sweet daughter. This day was bittersweet for me, as my dad loved President Obama and really wanted him to win the election, but didn't think it would happen. As I watched the inauguration with my students today, I found myself longing for my daddy and wanted him to experience in this monumental occassion.
Tomorrow, my sweet dad would have been 62 years old. I miss him so much every single day. I hope and pray that he knows how proud he made me to have him as my dad. Happy Birthday Daddy! I love you!!!
