Hello beautiful bloggers and friends. Today I have my last July reveal for Scrapbooking From the Inside Out kit - COURAGE. When I was perusing around online one day I came across this sentiment: Hate is easy, to love takes courage. It stuck with me, as it resonated feelings of my relationship with my father. Many of you already know that I have daddy issues and struggle with our relationship on a daily basis. I find that scrapping about those feelings gives me a sense of relief. And that's what SFTIO is a all about. Scrapping all those inner feelings - let them out! Scrap them out! It's truly amazing.
Here is my LO - DAD:
Sometimes I wish I could just hate you and be done with it all, but you are my father. I can't help but love you and want what's best for you. To want you to actually stop drinking again and just be a normal dad. The dad you were for the past 10 years of my life until you picked up that beer again. But I doubt that will ever happen. I hope one day it will. I will continue to love you even though you continually disappoint me. I will always be here for you, for my father.
I know I have scrapped this picture before, but it's one of the very few I have of my father. It's a wonderful picture taken candidly by my Brother in law Jason Dodge Photo. I LOVE this picture because it captures my father perfectly. Jason works out of Arkansas, so if you're in the area and need some awesome pics check him out! He's AMAZING!
