My Dad...

Whenever I hear the song, "I Loved her First" by Heartland, I get a lump in my throat. I couldn't agree more with the lyrics to this song-"I loved her first and I held her first, and a place in my heart will always be hers, from the first breath she breathed, when she first smiled at me, I knew the love of a father runs deep, and I prayed that she'd find you someday {he continues to that one day I will}..." 

Not only do I remember my dad teaching me to ride my first bike, but he also taught me to drive. I will never forget he picked me up from dance class and on the way home he stopped at a Fairgrounds Race Course (currently a subdivision) with a huge empty parking lot, he pulled into the parking lot and told me he was going to teach me how to drive. What I remember about my first driving lesson-I was wearing pink stockings, black leotard and pointe shoes:)

 My Dad (Bab in Armenian) has and still continues to work so hard to provide for his family. Although, he wasn't as fortunate growing up, he made sure to give my brother and I all the best he could. He has always supported me and has been there for me in every possible way. Even though my mom and I are best friends, people say I'm a Daddy's girl. My mom even says I always take his side, and I like to defend him (so not true, I don't take sides :)).

 and now, the love he has for his granddaughter (now granddaughters) and the way his face lights up when he sees the two little munchkins puts a smile on my face.

Thank you for everything you do for me Dad! 
I Love You!!!

 Grandfather (Dede in Armenian) duties:)

I can't believe this was my brother's 2nd Father's Day and now father to two beautiful girls . Seeing him with his daughters melts my heart<3 The girls are definitely going to be Daddy's girls:)

Father's Day is also a day I reflect back at memories I had with my Grandfathers (as well as many other days). I was about 6 years old when I lost both my Grandfather's around the same time. I thank God for giving me the time I did have with them.
In Loving memory of my Dede's
