Happy Birthday Rick!

As much as I would love to write today, I'm not going to be on here much. Today is my stepfather's birthday and I am going to spend all of today with family. Not a whole lot of people notice birthdays, we just think of it as another passing year and don't want anyone to make it a big deal. Well I'm going to try to make them a little more important to me because after all we should be happy about our loved ones blessing us with time to spend with them and that would be impossible without their birthday. I've spoke briefly about my father and how he well wasn't much of a father. He lacked any sort of respect for me and treated me bad. Well I was lucky enough to have a stepfather that was nothing like him and that tried his best even though he wasn't present for all of my life to try and undo the hurt caused by my father. He stuck by me with my mother through my teenage pregnancy, has been the most amazing grandpa, and has protected us from anything that could harm us. He was the man that sat in his car watching our house making sure my father didn't bother us or hurt us. I'm thankful for him not only for me, but for my mother. She needed him to come along, she needed stability and even though he is very stuck in his way sometimes, and may want things more structured than any sane person would prefer, I am happy to say that he is exactly what we needed to complete our family and take care of us children and my mother. As a teenager, I was like a bucking bronco, I wanted to do things my own way and the last thing I wanted was rules. My stepfather was an old-fashioned, country, very strict structured man. He had a lot of rules and wanted things the way he wanted them. I had never had any guidance from a fatherly point of view and frankly at that time I didn't want any. Now I see the importance of a father and even though I thought my father was gone I still had a father the whole time and he was much better than the one that was blood related to me. I will be playing pool and celebrating that today and most importantly the love I have for my parents! They have been there for me through thick and thin and they won't be here forever so I need to spend time with them for as long as I can:))))
