- Wedding: August 2013
I chose this song, Cinderella by Steven Curtis Chapman. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrWMBC6yoME.
Fiance cried when he heard it, because he told me that it breaks his heart that my father was never that man the singer sings about, and he thought it would make my dad cry because my dad knows he was distant and was not there for my prom or other special events past age 8 when my parents divorced.
My mom is not keen on the song. She thinks it is better suited for someone who’s father was around, and I understand that, she did everything for me and sacrificed so much.
My best friend thinks its not fitting as well.
My dad was very distant when he left us even though we lived in the same city.
I guess I just really loved the song and things have improved over the last couple of years between us. And I was that little girl that he sings about at the start. I guess I just wanted those 5 minutes to have ‘that dad’. But now I feel stupid because everyone knows that the lyrics are not realistic.
My wedding is in 11 days. I still would like to dance with my dad. Does anyone have any ideas of songs for me?
