I couldn't see my own father on Father's Day since he is in Florida, but i did get to spend it with a father. It never ceases to amaze me to see my friends, most of whom i've known since we were almost children ourselves, raise children of their own. The babies of our extended family make me feel like we are grown-ups. I was a Daddy's Girl and seeing Chris H with Elizabeth made me consider the magic of dads. Dad makes you giggle, even when you are trying to be mopey; Dad can be embarrassing in his silliness; [Chris let me know if you'd like a copy of this pic for the jacket of your next book] but in the end, it is your Daddy that makes you feel safe.
