A Fathers Love – Stacy’s Story
This song reminds me of my dad so much. My dad was the middle of three boys and growing up his parents never said I love you to him. So when he had me and my brother he had a very hard time saying I love you to us, because he never knew anything different. Then I got older and well I had him wrapped around my finger. Growing up I never realized it but he had a hard time saying I love you to anyone. When I talked to him on the phone and hung up I would always say Love you bye, it took him a few years to catch on but he would still not be able to do it. He did say I love you when it was much needed but I never heard it often. When I got my licence when I was 16 he didnt want to see me leave that driveway and before I did he checked everything in the car to make sure it was ok. Even though he just did it the day before when we picked up the car. Everytime I went anywhere after that he would always make sure everything in my car was in good order before i pulled out of the driveway. He did everything he could to make sure I knew how much he loved me. Whether it be him checking my car, or even sneaking out in my car to get gas for me just so he knew that I had some. He did everything that he could possibly do. He never said he was proud of me or even seemed to care about what I was doing in life until the day that I came home from after getting my second semester marks from school crying because I had just faialed my first class ever and he looked at me and said “Stacy you will get it next time, you can do anything you put your mind to and will do anything you want” I just thought it was a dad comforting his daughter but now I know that it was his way of telling me how much he loved me and how proud he was. Sadly my dad passed away and I do not get to know forsure what he would be like when I move to my own house but I can honestly say that he wouldn’t be able to sit still and enjoy that his little girl did this on her own but he would fix anything and everything he could. I love my dad and he was always very akward when you went to give him a hug, he stiffened up and it would only be a quick two second hug but looking back those were the best hugs a dad could give. Everytime I hear this song I think about me and my dad and what he had, and what we would have had in the future.
