I grew up in South Georgia and we had very HOT summers. We spent a lot of time in the pool or at the beach. One memory that sticks out is a time that my family was at the beach together on vacation when I was about 8. My dad took me out in the water. I was usually only allowed to go in as deep as my waist, but since my dad was there I went a little deeper than that. We were having a great time swimming and splashing around, until I saw a giant wave coming. It was huge and there was no way to avoid it. I remember the wave hitting me and pulling me under the water. I was terrified and trying desperately to find my way back up to the surface. It felt like I was under the water forever when all of a sudden I felt my dad's hand grab onto my arm and he pulled me up. I remember just feeling completely relieved and also realizing how lucky I was that he was there with me in such a scary situation.

My dad passed away almost 4 years ago. I love that I have these sweet memories of him now.
