How lucky am I to have had two dads!
This month is not an easy month for me. I lost my step dad last year on this date. He taught me how to drive and took me to get my drivers license. He was a rock driller, and I remember being able to go with him on the job. I stood under a big rock truck, while they blew up the rock face for the quarry he worked in. He taught me how to drive a drill that was on tracks. I even was able to help him get explosives ready for blowing up the rock. He was the best dad a girl could have! He was the one that drove me from Illinois to Ohio to meet Matt when we were first together. I was on my way to live with Matt in New York. He is deeply missed. I loved him as if he was my biological father.
Next week is just as hard. It will be two years since I lost my real dad. I will save his memories for next week.
