Honestly, both my mom and I--whenever we watch you--I know you haven't done all the plastic surgery stuff, but you look incredible. And I know it's not just the physical. You have lots of joy and happiness with what you're doing, and you have that inner light that radiates out.
Hello Eric. I am reaching out to you today because I spoke with Anissa's father a few weeks ago, and his words are lingering with me. First and foremost, I want start off by saying that I have nothing against you as an individual, but I do have something against the way my daughter and grandson are being treated. It is not about me liking or disliking you because Anissa is going do what Anissa wants to do regardless of how I may feel, she's grown but being her mother and to see my story playing out for her too, I don't appreciate it. You left my daughter pregnant and alone for nine whole months. She worked from beginning to end, she didn't have to work because my husband and I were already working three jobs to make sure for her and Gabriel's arrival, all she had to do was
A phenomenal, strong, and intelligent woman. I introduce myself in such ways because I am a daddyless daughter, however being a daddy-less daughter does not define who I am. It does not take away the hard work, and achievements I have encountered in my 20 years of living.
If I was given the opportunity to sit down and have a discussion with any one person, living or deceased, I would speak with my loving husband, Todd Stevens. On May 24, 2006 my husband of twelve years and the father to our six beautiful children was killed by a drunk driver while driving home from work that evening. I would talk to Todd first about our children and how proud he would be of all of them. Noah would be the first child I mentioned, as he was the baby and only six days old when Todd was killed. I would tell him how sweet Noah is and what a kind, loving soul he has. Also, that he is placed in the gifted and talented classes at school. I would talk next about Nathan and how he is so independent and wants to be older then he really. About our daughter Emily and how she made the honors list at college and just finished her first year there. I would tell him about Joshua and that he’s in his first year as an electrical apprentice an about Daniel and how he works as a conductor at Norfolk Southern just like him. I would tell him about Michael and that he is in apprenticeship program as well for plumber and pipefitters and about how hard he works.
My family is about money; you should have a job that's all about money. Don't worry about spending time with your wife and kids because you must provide for your family. It's all about money. I remember when I was growing up my mom and dad will be fighting about money. My dad spends about 13,000 a year on lottery tickets, that's why we have money problems. I have seen money splint up families and friends. I am 28 years old and the only thing that I know about my father is he was born in Alabama. He never spent any time with me or any of his other kids or said anything positive. He tells me to get out his face and leave him alone, go and play some were, and talk to me like am a slave. And the only time he talks to me is when it came to money, example: Why you won't to be in the band? That cost money. My dad and me never spent time with each other unless it is was
My father died from a motorcycle crash on June 17th, 2011. I was 13 years old, the summer before 8th grade. It was an absolute tragedy and it will always remain as one of the biggest heart breaks of my life. I smile now thinking about him but late at night, if I think about him too much, I still cry. I am not telling you this for you to feel sorry for me but for you to understand that I took this tragedy and used it to fuel my determination to be better. This was a dark period in my life but I came out of it, I moved forward and, though I will never forget, I didn't let it stunt my growth as a person.
spending every seconds; minutes; hours; days; weeks; and months with you is memorable, every night I spend with you make me want to stay longer and be with you everyday, I felt every emotion there is in the past eight months of being happy; worry; sad; joyful; disappointed; excited; lonely; scared; and being afraid, every drive to see you is worth every cents of gas cause you're the one I love, every time I hurted you make me sad to think that I don’t deserve a man like you to be in my life and to be my boyfriend who forgiven and love me as much as you do, no matter how bad our arguments and fights are I will always still want to cuddle with you; hug you; kiss you; and see you, I cried too often thinking you would leave too many time in restaurants;
My parents Brad and Alina always seem to be arguing about something. Brad, my father, is always gone on business trips and never seems to have time for family. I'm in 7th grade now and my mom is my only support. My mom is always trying to make excuses for why my dad couldn’t make it home on time. However, she makes me smile every time I see her in the stands cheering me on. My father hasn’t been to any of my track meets, basketball, or baseball games for almost two years. I always hear my friends talking about how they went fishing or played catch with their dad’s over the weekend. When I was in first grade my dad didn’t work as much so we would all go as a family to the park and run around. However, when I was In third grade I got diagnosed
And in the end, after all that's happened these past 19 months, the Barack Obama I know today is the same man I fell in love with 19 years ago. He's the same man who drove me and our new baby daughter home from the hospital 10 years ago this summer, inching along at a snail's pace, peering anxiously at
I come from a family that is half Irish, a quarter German and a quarter Portuguese. My mom’s side of the family lives in San Diego, where my dad’s side lives in Boston. I am very thankful for many things in my life. In particular, I am very grateful for my grandparents, family, and friends.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I will always remember the look on my mother's face when she first told me that my dad had died. No emotion. Nothing. It seemed to me that my mom did not care that her husband had just died. I did not want to ask her why she reacted that way for fear of upsetting her, so I turned to others to talk about what had happened and really open up. Talking to others about how I felt about that situation lifted a heavy feeling in my chest and made those first few days without my dad bearable. It came to a point that anytime I got that heavy feeling in my chest I knew it was time to talk about my feelings. Expressing my feelings and opening up to people has now become something I regularly do. I quickly learned to discern who to tell what about me,
One thing that I have accomplished that I am proud of is making the state basketball team. Five months ago I went to the state tournament but sadly we got 11th place out of 24 teams. A few short weeks later I went to the movies with McKenna. While I was there my dad got a phone call from my mom saying that I made the state team so my dad crept into my movie and said “macy you made the state team!” As he was trying to hold his excitement back so that he would not interrupt the
It 's this time of the year again, the one day of the year that is filled with so many memories and so many tears. It 's been several years, and I haven 't seen your face, I can 't even remember even spending a father 's day with you. Every time events and days like birthday, holidays and celebrations of some sort come around I 've always tried to dig very deeply into my memories and try my hardest to remember your face, not from a picture but the moment in time when I was able to hug you and hold you. But, I can 't. I don 't remember feeling a father 's touch; fathers hug, being lifted when I couldn 't walk anymore, I can 't remember being loved and told bedtime stories and even a fathers punishment, I can 't remember you dad. I know I love you, cause your my dad, but other than just the label of being my father. I don 't know you or can remember you. I don 't like father 's day, never once did. It 's always that day I shed tears cause it 's the day everyone thanks their dad for always being there to love and support them as they grow into these wonderful adults, it 's the day everyone is given a chance to show their fathers how important they are and how they 're appreciated in their lives. But, I can 't thank someone for things I hoped they were here for, I can love you no matter the circumstance which I 've always done and forever will continue doing.
