Playing Catch-up!

Firstly, 
isn't she so beautiful?!
I want to say Congratulations to my sister and Jenny for their new adventure as one.
I am so happy for my sister and I love her so much. 
I'm hoping to have pictures from the union soon, but today is the day I play catch-up since I am falling behind in the 30 Days of Truth.

Moving on...

Something you never get compliments on.

I honestly cannot think of anything that I never get compliments on. Really, what do you say to this? I could make a huge fib out of it just to fish for some compliments, but that's so unlike me.  

Day 13: A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough days.

Dear New Found Glory,
Thank you for always bringing a smile to my face. Whether it be your goofy actions or the witty lyrics, you always know how to turn my frown upside down. Thank you for always going beyond my expectations and showing me to never give up. Your music has always been the first thing that I listen to when I need encouragement because its so full of positivity and energy. I will always cherish the memories that your music holds and I will be sure to share your wonderful music with my daughter when she learns to appreciate music as much as I do.
Yours Truly,
Danielle

(Now this next one is a bit difficult for me so bear with me, please...)
A hero that has let you down.

Dear Daddy,
I have many things to say, but I am so unsure of how to say them so I will start with this; I love you and I have always looked up to you. Ever since I was a little girl I have clung to the idea that I had to be perfect in your eyes, that I had to do anything i could possibly do to make sure that you wouldn't leave again, but even that didn't get your attention. I tried my hardest to be what you wanted me to be and I gave up a lot of myself so that you would be happy. When I do see you I may act calm and collected, but inside I am screaming, "Daddy, pay attention to me! Please, just look at me and see that I need you." All I want to do is spend some time with you, I want to get to know you and I want you to get to know me. I bet you don't even know my favorite color... its the rainbow! I love all the colors. Picture me as the 4 year old me, when we would wrestle and goof off together. Was it easier then? Am I just too much of a disappointment now that you just don't want to spend time with me. You give the time to my daughter that i wish I had some of. Maybe I am just a bit jealous, but could she and I share some of that time? Anytime I am near you seem tired, in a bad mood, and standoffish. Will it hurt you to open up your arms and hold me without hesitation? I need you, daddy. I need you to say that you are proud of me, that you love me so much that you would still do anything to protect me. I need you to tell me that I am your angel, that you want to know me. I don't want you to grow old without getting to know me a bit more.
I love you.




Okay, now that I have ruined my mascara and I have caught up a little bit it is time to go get lunch ready for the munchkin and myself.
I hope that you all have a beautiful day. 
love and hugs,
Danielle

Danielle this breaks my heart.
I've been there too. I have family that I feel the exact same way about.
I don't like to see a friend hurt. You are such an amazing person inside. He has no idea what he is missing out on.
I wish I could hug you in person right now!!!
Please have a wonderful week sweet lady.
I emailed you the other day. Did you get it?
