Dancing with Dad!

Recommended Posts

I like a couple of you, am also dancing with my "step"dad (it's weird to even call him that cause he's the only dad I've ever known). I love Brad Paisely's song He didn't have to be, the lyrics are so beautiful for anyone in this same position! Let me know what you think!

I just found this song and for sure am dancing to this with my Dad. I'm totally in tears after just hearing it

It's called "You Don't Have to Let Go" by Jessica Simpson...cheesy I know!! BUT the words are AMAZING

Here they are...

You Don't Have To Let Go"

 

I don't need your strength anymore

cause you've made me strong

You may not see the woman in me

That you dreamed of

Holding me in your arms

 

All the days that you gave

All the moments you've saved me,

Praying for my life

Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own

You don't have to let go

 

You don't say it

But it's in your eyes

All the fears of good-bye

But I can promise

You'll always have a place, and a way to my heart

 

All the days that you gave

All the moments you've saved me,

Praying for my life

Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own

You don't have to let go

 

I can live

Cause you lived for me

And I can love

Because you loved me.

 

All the days that you gave

All the moments you've saved me,

Praying for my life

Sacrificed, just to make me who I am on my own

You don't have to let go

 

(Ooh ooh ooh)

You don't have to let go

I don't think we are going to have an "official" father daughter dance- having people watch me dance for even one song is more than I can handle! But I will make a point to dance with my dad during "Have I Told You Lately" by Rod Stewart. He is a huge Rod Stewart fan, and I was when I was a little girl, and he loved that.

My fiance danced with his daughter to Paul Simon's "Father and Daughter" at her wedding. Not easy to dance to, however. It was funny how they choreographed the whole thing, but at that special moment just got caught up in the emotions and lost all the planning. It was beautiful, though.

 

If you leap awake

In the mirror of a bad dream

And for a fraction of a second

You can't remember where you are

Just open your window

And follow your memory upstream

To the meadow in the mountain

Where we counted every falling star

 

I believe the light that shines on you

Will shine on you forever

And though I can't guarantee

There's nothing scary hiding under your bed

I’m gonna stand guard

Like a postcard of a Golden Retriever

And never leave till I leave you

With a sweet dream in your head

 

I'm gonna watch you shine

Gonna watch you grow

Gonna paint a sign

So you'll always know

As long as one and one is two

There could never be a father

Who loved his daughter more than I love you

 

Trust your intuition

It's just like going fishing

You cast your line

And hope you'll get a bite

But you don't need to waste your time

Worrying about the market place

Try to help the human race

Struggling to survive its harshest night

 

I'm gonna watch you shine

Gonna watch you grow

Gonna paint a sign

So you'll always know

As long as one and one is two

There could never be a father

Who loved his daughter more than I love you

 

I'm gonna watch you shine

Gonna watch you grow

Gonna paint a sign

So you'll always know

As long as one and one is two

There could never be a father

Who loved his daughter more than I love you

My daddy and I danced to "Your Joy" by Chrisette Michelle.

 

Walk down the sidewalk,

Staring at your feet,

Wishing my steps were longer,

So by your sides I could keep.

 

Hold your hand much bigger,

Never wanted mine to grow,

So I could always fit perfect,

Inside your palms just so.

 

No one loves me just like you do,

No one knows me just like you do,

No one can compare to the way my eyes fit in yours,

You'll always be my father,

And I'll always be your joy.

 

Lay me on your belly,

Nights when mama wasn't home,

Lightning made me shiver,

And you never let me feel alone.

 

I tried to match your breathing,

Beating my little heart against yours,

Perfect were the nights we were sleeping,

I never want to end what we are.

 

'Cause no one loves me just like you do,

And no one loves me just like you do,

No one can compare to the way my eyes fit in yours,

You'll always be my father,

And I'll always be your joy.

 

One day he'll come on bended knee,

And ask my love away from me,

And when I give my love to him,

He'll always have a place within.

 

One day he'll come on bended knee,

And ask my love away from me,

And when I give my love to him,

You'll always have a place within.

 

No one loves me just like you do,

No one knows me just like you do,

No one can compare to the way my eyes fit in yours,

You'll always be my father,

And I'll always be your joy.

I just gave my dad a CD with 10 or so songs on it to listen to and choose the one he wanted. He picked "I loved her first" by Heartland. Now if I can just listen to it enough times... perhaps I won't cry my head off while dancing with him at my wedding :-)

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
