Dear Dad....

Thank you for being my dad.
Thank you for loving me all my life through every moment, even when my hair was gross and I had braces.
Thank you for staying married to Mom.
Thank you for going to work every day even when you didn't want to, even when your body was stiff and tired, so I could have a house to come home to and a safe place where I only have to be me, and plenty of food to eat.
Thank you for wanting what is best for me.
Thank you for buying really nice tires for Pierre. <3
Thank you for doing the dishes almost every single night. I know you really don't like it.

Dear Future Nicole...

If I know you at all, you are probably still single.
And you are probably still really unhappy about that.

I just wanted to remind you to thank God that He didn't give you what you begged Him for.
It wasn't best.

You probably only miss the happy moments of dating...

Don't.

You're gonna meet a guy who's gonna blow your fricken mind.
In the meantime, spend time with the One Who Already Has.

And stay happy, where you are... :)

Love. Love. Love.
~Past Nicole
