My dad came to visit from New York for a couple weeks to help me out with whatever he could. I just wanted to thank him for coming to Minnesota. Even though we live in two different states, it's was comforting to have my daddy here.
I remember when I was a little girl and running into him arms when mom was chasing me around because I had done something mischievous. He was my knight in shining armor and protected me from whatever punishment I should've gotten. :-)
