I know I don’t talk about my Daddy here at all. But there are reasons.
My Daddy is amazing and brilliant and I am still a daddy’s girl at 45 years old. My Daddy also has in-operable terminal cancer. I have been able to spend the past 6 years with him because he is brave and noble and awesome and can SUCK IT UP SOLDIER and deal with all the BS that goes with his diagnosis & treatment. So yeah, every moment I can spend with my Daddy counts. HUGE.
This particular day? GREAT.
He was able to forget the big C for just awhile.
He left the farm for the big city in the early 60’s, so it’s been a very long time since he has seen a Shetland pony and her 1 ft tall baby.
Seriously ~ 12 inches at the shoulder ~ it was so cute, but the bull in the background was all “if I could get to you, I would be your worst nightmare”.
We talked and laughed and for that I am thankful.
That is what life and family and finding some zen is all about.
Have a ridiculously amazing day.

big girl daddy love – nothing wrong with that. I miss my dad every day ❤
Sorry to hear about your daddy. Mine died of cancer too.
Hugs to you as well my dear ❤
I’m so happy that you have this time to spend with your dad. I’m sure that he appreciates it also. And your pony is sooooo cute!
I wish it were my little pony (get it? ~ you know I had to go for the pun)
It actually lives next door. That way I get all of the enjoyment, but none of the work 😉
It’s wonderful that you still have him. My dad survived what his doctors told us was terminal cancer twice. Once in 1985 and again in 2005. I lost him on May 4, 2009, but not to cancer.
He had always prayed that he would not be bedridden and become a burden on Mother. The first day he couldn’t get out of bed he went “on home” peacefully in his sleep. He was just shy of his 83rd birthday. Keep taking those pictures and make the most of every single moment. You are so blessed to have him…and he, you.
Sounds like your Daddy was super amazing too. Thanks Kat ❤
Oh Lisa I’m so glad that you were able to spend time with your Daddy. It’s so hard to watch someone going through cancer and to be the one on the other side wanting to do anything to help them. Love up on your Daddy and know that you will always be a Daddy’s girl no matter what. Love and Hugs, Tamara
Hug your moma for me 🙂
