Thank you Daddy!
Dad’s are special.
Euripides once said “To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.” Well, that can be reversed. As I grow older and my father grows older, my love for my Daddy (yes he is and always will be my DADDY) also grows by leaps and bounds. The older we both get, the dearer and more special a relationship between a father and daughter truly is.
For starters, I am blessed to have my Daddy. I have so many friends who, already, have lost their fathers. And my heart goes out to them every day and especially on Father’s Day for the wonderful men that they have lost. (But they now have some pretty amazing people looking out for them from above.)
But it is only as we grow up that we truly see the sacrifices our fathers have made over the years and truly appreciate them. I realize that my Dad has helped me to be organized, to learn about finances, to be a leader, and that sometimes it’s okay to get teared up when you are really happy, proud, or just love someone to bits.
I was thrilled to be able to teach community yoga at Lululemon Hyde Park in honor of Father’s day. I honored my Father in the theme, the music, and the class featured high school students to individuals older than my parents. It was truly an amazing experience and I am so honored to have been able to teach at Lululemon. My Daddy inspired class and I think everyone could feel his energy! 🙂
Here I am with some of the students after class:
I received a lot of feedback and praise for the class and, surprisingly, the Father-inspired playlist I had made! I was asked to share the music, so here you go!
The hour long class featured the following tunes:Adele – Make You Feel My Love Johnny Cash – You Are My Sunshine LeeAnn Womack – I Hope You Dance John Mayer – Daughters The Temptations – Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone The Fighters – Keep Your Head Up Unspoken – Start a Fire Stevie Wonder – Isn’t She Lovely Lee Brice – I Don’t Dance Ray Charles – Ain’t That Love Rascal Flatts – My Wish Willie Nelson – The Rainbow Connection Heartland – I Loved Her First Jewel – Somewhere Over the Rainbow
