Happy Fathers Day babe.

When a single mom goes out on a date with somebody new
It always winds up feeling more like a job interview
My momma used to wonder if she'd ever meet someone
Who wouldn't find out about me and then turn around and run

I met the man I call my dad when I was five years old
He took my mom out to a movie and for once I got to go
A few months later I remember lying there in bed
I overheard him pop the question and prayed that she'd say yes

And then all of a sudden
Oh, it seemed so strange to me
How we went from something's missing
To a family

Lookin' back all I can say
About all the things he did for me
Is I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be

Yeah, I hope I'm at least half the dad
That he didn't have to be
Because he didn't have to be
You know he didn't have to be.

-Brad Paisley

Kinda funny... I had Brad Paisley playing in the background while reading this... too bad it was "Alcohol". LOL But seriously, it's always so wonderful to hear a story like this, a man (or woman) taking in and loving kids that aren't their own and treating them like they were. :) Congrats.
