{Everyday in May} - My Daddy Always Said

One thing my daddy always said, that I'll never forget...

...You're beautiful.

I know this is not the words that every daughter hears from her daddy, so I'm forever grateful to have a father that lifts me up and encourages me.

Growing up, I never felt that I had to have a boyfriend or have men in my life to make me feel special, because my daddy did that for me. He told me I was beautiful, smart and talented. I didn't have to search for it.

Thanks dad for the words that built me up and for the words I'll never forget.

I'm beautiful.

That is seriously one of the sweetest things ever, and every time I hear a girl say this I get a tad bit jealous. My Dad never ever said things like that to me. He's not really one to be affectionate towards his family. BUT, I do know that one day I'll get to create this for my own daughter (I don't have kids yet, but when I do). Because I know how it feels to go without hearing that, I'll be sure to create an environment where my daughter is told this very thing all the time :)
