Change Happens

My dad said the funniest thing today. He said “Life is all about change”. No shit! Really Dad? When did that happen? I thought life stayed the same the entire time!

Okay, so perhaps I shouldn’t be that mean about it. I just thought it was particularly humorous how the one person who refuses to accept that his two daughters have entered adulthood and no longer need his help at all times is the one preaching to me about change. Times change and people grow up, this I know. How ironic that my dad is telling me about accepting change? He’s the one who won’t!

My sister and I have had many cry-fests over this and the only thing we can do is pray that Dad will accept the fact that we’re growing up. There is not much else we can do, and we can’t talk to him about it. He would get all defensive and think we’re trying to pick on him. In fact, he might even start to cry. It has been known to happen.

I love my dad more than anything, but sometimes he just annoys the living daylights out of me! I know that he has my best interest at heart and that he is doing everything out of love. I am so lucky to have a dad who does love and care about me that much; it’s not all that common these days.

Ironic moments seem to fill our time together.
