This morning when I was walking to work, I got pouty. I shuffled my feet a little and in a babyish way thought this will be the first Valentine’s Day I probably won’t get candy from my Dad. I have the best dad in the world and every year he always gets my sister and I candy for Valentine’s Day. I realized that being across the world, this year that really wouldn’t work out.
On my desk I found some pretty red tulips (from Vu) and I saw a little Cupcake STHLM bag. Yay Vu bought me a cupcake. Then I saw a little note and realized the cupcake was from my DAD. I couldn’t believe how sweet and thoughtful it was that he asked Vu to go get this cupcake for me.
When Vu got back to the office, I thanked him for running the errand for my Dad. I didn’t do it, he replied, your Dad had it delivered. That’s when I got all chocked up. My Daddy actually called and had a cupcake delivered to me. From my favorite cupcake place. When he’s in Florida and I am in Sweden.
Writing this I have tears running down my face. I know 2011 was a really rough year for all of us, Dad. But you are the absolute best most thoughtful dad a girl could ever want. And you made something as simple as a cupcake make me feel like the most loved girl in the world. I love and miss you SO much. Holy homesickness right this second.
This picture will go somewhere in my apartment.
Question of the Day: Has someone made you feel special lately?
Happy Valentine’s Day.
