24-DEC-2008 Cindi Smith


Dallas, TX

This man is the man that I truly admire, love with all my heart and soul, and respect beyond measure. He's the one, of course with my very beautiful mother, that brought me into this world and has made me the woman I am today. God blessed me so much by giving me the best earthly father I could have. The rest of the days of this challenge will be images of those who touch my heart and whom I love very much. I wish I could have another 500 million days to put an image of everyone who means something to me. But, I can't so just look in the mirror and know you are one of my favorite people. Sometimes, you don't even know how many people you "touch" each day and you may be the one that smiled at someone who was thinking about taking his own life and then changed his mind when he got your smile. Maybe when you helped that homeless person out and gave them food, that you also gave them hope. Just little things like a smile or a hug or just a kind word can change the life of somesone. You never know, so I decided that for the rest of the challenge I would put up a few pictures of a few folks I absolutely love with all I have and who have molded me to be the best I can be and to really listen with my heart and not my ears.

Cindi: you said very treasured words about your father. I think of mine always and think similar things, but he has been gone for 18 almost 19 years and I truly miss him. He was a people person who loved to help people as a state part ranger. thank you for sharing about your father.

Great man of character and I believe he is the best father and friend of you.
Mine had passed away so many years ago, when I was a young girl and he was only 42. I've been missing him through all my adult life.
I understand and echo Mathilda.

Oh Cindi. I was going to write something here, but after reading your words, I have no words left. I understand about your father, and would give anything to have mine for just one more day.

A beautiful relaxed portrait of a man who is comfortable in his own skin! Happy New Year, Cindi's Dad.
