I have pretty much the best dad in the whole world. Of course, I think almost every daughter probably thinks that about her father, but mine is The Best. Really. He's always there when I need him. Like today for example:
I took Kade to get his 2 month pictures at Wal-Mart. He posed exactly how we wanted him to and looked angelicly at the camera--until the last pose. He was hungry and he was through! I had a bottle with me, but was trying to get him to wait. I sat down as the photographer started to edit and enhance some of the pictures and I tried to jiggle Kade, while getting his bottle together. By now, he was mad! I started to wonder: "How am I going to look at and choose these pictures while feeding this cranky baby?!" My phone had rung a couple of times and when I glanced at it, it was my dad--Kade's poppa. 'I'll call him back later', I thought.
Well, not two mintes later, who walks into the portrait studio but poppa! Was I glad to see him! My dad not only comforted Kade and fed him the rest of his bottle, he helped me pick out the pictures AND paid for the pictures when the network wouldn't process my check and I had forgotten my check card at home. He was a lifesaver!
Could I have made it through the whole ordeal without him? Sure! I would have dealt with Kade, picked out pictures, and gotten cash to pay for them. But, did my dad make it a heck of a lot easier? Yeah!
It's sort of like our heavenly Father. Can we physically make it through this life without Him? Sure we can! Many people do. But does He make it a heck of a lot easier? Yeah! When we think we're at the end of our rope, all we have to do is look up and there He is!
Dads are awesome. And I have the two best dads in the world.
I love You, daddy.
