For those of you who havenít heard, I lost my dad on his birthday, January 22nd. It was a long journey into dementia with my dad and luckily he was happy and comfortable through most of it. As my sister and little brother and I gathered for his funeral, we each got a surprise envelope from him that he had written in his better days. My dad was such a fun-loving man! He may not have been the most sophisticated guy, but he definitely made life a joy Ė even after he was gone.
I know you all get the question as often as I do Ė ďT-Tapp? Is there tap dancing involved?Ē Trust me, Iíve heard Ďem all -- Iíve spent my whole life with the Tapp name! And while it may not have been the sexiest name for a fitness program, I called it T-Tapp to honor my dad and his encouragement to me as I was growing up Ė ďyou can do anything, honey!Ē You see, I got that Yes You Can message when I was growing up and I made sure to pay it forward.
So, now you know why Iíve kept calling it T-Tapp even when everyone around me was trying to tell me I needed to change the name. I donít think anything could make my dad happier than to know that so many wonderful people call themselves T-Tappers Ė I think it tickled him pink! I often tell you all that Iím so grateful for each of you and now you know another reason why.
