"3 A.M. TOUGH!"

So it's February.... my Daddy's Birthday Month... He would have been 60 years old on February 9th.   His birthday came and went... nothing out of the ordinary happened for the day or night...didn't really have to time to sit around and think of him because it was football games for Noah... 2 of em.. and then Daddy/Daughter Dance for Emmie.  I was busy!  Great night for the Daddies and Daughters and fun pics to show...
 It wasn't until 3 A.M. that I was awakened with Jensie coughing and it was one of those that made her VOMIT! All over the sheets in my bed.... all the while...big lightening and thunderstorm... Gunner awakes and is scared.... Hubby heads up to be with him  and I clean up me and the baby.  Come back into our room to find my efficient hubby has already stripped our bed.  So I get sheets and remake our bed with Jensie sitting in the middle so she won't cry.  Then take dirty bedding to the washer with baby on hip...load the vomit blankets.... gag.  I get back in the bed to cuddle with my baby girl and am wide awake.... can't think of nothing but MY DADDY!  I think of how strong and tough he was.  I think of being 3 A.M. TOUGH and how I was born to do this!  I am my father's daughter and he lives in my heart...it was 3 hours past his birthday but I felt him with me.  I miss him so much.  How can it still hurt so bad?  But I am gonna keep being tough and strong because that is what he would want me to do.  That is how he raised me!  He even pushed me to practice basketball in the ice storm like no other by offering to go pick up the whole basketball team so we could practice?  Whewww!  I laugh now.... but didn't then!  :) So this is my Happy 60th Birthday to my Daddy!
