Salute to All Father's....




Wishing every father a Happy Father's Day!  For all of you that know me closely know I had the honour of being raised by a step father. He took my sis and I in and loved us as his own at the age of 2 & 4.  He never introduced us as step daughters - we were "his girls" AND always told everyone from the time we were tots to the day he passed away we were the "prettiest girls" anywhere as we still sat on his knee. He was an amazing man, hard worker, taught me true life lessons, how to ride a horse, taught me how to two step, most importantly how to buy a good pair of cowboy boots, how to appreciate the small things in life, and how to make the most of every good and bad situation. He is the one who gave me my first car, bought my cheer leading uniforms, prom dresses and more prom dresses when times were hard for the gas industry, gave me away at my wedding, was there at the birth of my first born, gave me advice on raising children, taught us how to build a campfire, taught all of us kids to work hard and play harder, and most of all how to treat people with honesty and respect. He is the one who was there all those years, He is the one I miss, 16 years later....  Wesley, this song is for you....
