Daddy’s Little Girl

I am kind of superstitious.  As much as I yammer on I keep my cards closer to my chest than you might think.  When my Universe is in flux I tend to just shut up and hold on.  

This morning a girlfriend said “You don’t really talk much about your dad.” And my eyes welled up with tears.  “Nope.  Because there isn’t that much to say.  It isn’t complicated.  I Love him, like little girl Love him. He’s my Dad. And I’m his little girl.”

I’m not a fan of vaguebooking (the intentionally vague Facebook status) nor do I think it is all that cool to use my blog to tell someone else’s story.  Occasionally I have to make a choice to just shut up altogether or to tell only part of the story. 

My dad needs surgery.  This little girl is kind of inside out about that.  I might be quiet this week.  I am planning to head to see my father as soon as I am able.  In the meantime if you have extra good juju, prayers or well wishes – I’ll take them.  He’s going to be just fine. Because he’s my dad.  He’s fought bigger battles.  And he always wins. Because he’s my dad. And I am his little girl.
