Happy May Day
Today I got to go downtown and enjoy an hour with my dad. Just me. Just him. I rarely talk about him on here, but he is a MAJOR part of my life. He is the reason my family functions and the part of the reason I am who I am. So today I went downtown to apply for a fictitious business name for my candy business, SugarPalooza. Since it was downtown dad insisted I go to see him first and we could do it together. I just LOVE how my dad wants to still take care of me. I love that quality. He always is the first to solve any and all of my problems. So I did. We walked down to the county clerk office and went through the process together. Everyone knew him in there and he proudly showed me off, like I was still 4 years old. I bet through his eyes, I still am. Since we were waiting for a while my dad ofcourse, worried about my parking meter and took my keys and a quarter and walked to my car refilling the meter...gush I know! After a few couples getting married and some interesting people watching, I officially own the name SugarPalooza. So we continued walking and ran into a farmer's market and we bought his favorite-apricots. The rest of the way back to my car I just captured in my mind and heart this tender moment between a father and his daughter, walking side by side, eating apricots out of a nylon bag and listening to a father's story of where he worked in the past downtown and pointing out all the different offices he used to know. Everything was right in that very moment and the words of my little Zoe rang loudly in my head..."Mommy, why do girls LOVE their daddy's so much?" Maybe because they always look at us as their little girl. Love you dad, thanks for today's moment.
