Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today is my Daddy's birthday. Yes, I am 30 years old and still call him Daddy. 
Growing up, there was a framed photo in my parents room that read "Anyone can be a Father, but it takes someone special to be a Daddy." And he is a pretty special guy, so that's why I still call him Daddy. :)


The song that reminded me of him the first time I heard it just happens to be by my favorite singer, Will Hoge. 


He's a twenty year straight get to work on time
He's a love one woman for all his life
He's a shirt off his back, give you his last dime
He's strong

He's a need to move something you can use my truck
He's an overtime worker when the bills pile up
Everybody knows he ain't just tough
He's strong

Strong

He'll pick you up and won't let you down
Rock solid inside out
Somebody you can trust
Steady as the sun
Ain't nothing gonna knock him off the road he's rollin' on
He's strong

It ain't what he can carry what he can lift
It's a dirt road lesson talkin' to his kids
Bout how to hold your ground and how to live
Strong

He's strong

He'll pick you up and won't let you down
Rock solid inside out
Somebody you can trust
Steady as the sun
Ain't nothing gonna knock him off the road he's rollin' on
He's strong

Strong
Like the river rollin'
Strong
Gonna keep on going
Strong
When the road runs out
They gonna keep on talkin' about

How he was strong
Strong

He'll pick you up and won't let you down
Rock solid inside out
Somebody you can trust
Steady as the sun
Ain't nothing gonna knock him off the road he's rollin' on
He's strong

Everybody knows he ain't just tough
He's strong

  1. I swear to you, I listen to that song daily, and each time it reminds me of my dad, who is still here and kicking and I'm beyond blessed to have my "daddy" in my life. It's a southern girl thing to add that dy regardless of the age!
