Certain things have always been. You don't really think about them...they just are. My husband has blue eyes. I don't contemplate it, they just are. I look at him and its part of him. It doesn't change. In my 25 years of life lots of things have changed. I've lived in Africa. I've had children. I've been to college. Lots of things change regularly. However. I'm not always a fan of change.
After 32 years of being the same, my daddy SHAVED. HIS. BEARD. NOT COOL! Now, granted I'm not a fan of facial hair on all men. But my daddy has always had a beard. He kept it close but it was always there. Just a part of him. Not changing. Until Saturday.
I was really surprised and shocked by this new development. Some have commented that he looks younger I however am going to have a much longer adjustment period. It's just unsettling to look at my daddy. I liked his beard.
Apparently he's been considering this since Christmas and its a requirement for his new job so he took that as conformation. I'm just not sure how I feel about it. I still love you daddy.
