My Dad

In honor of Father's Day this weekend I wanted to give a very special thanks to my amazing Dad. I realized that I have fabulous parents and my dad is simply the best dad around. Dad's really do have a special bond with their little girls - not that they love their son's any less BUT it is just different. Here are a few things that I love about my Dad....AGAIN, let me reiterate that this is only a small list - the list could go on for days!

  1. I love that my Dad is such a good and compassionate Dad. He genuinely cares about us and will do anything for any of us at any time.
  2. I love that my he will ask 1000 questions and it is all because of how much he really cares
  3. I love that as a baby he spanked me which resulted in my crying and he never spanked me again - not that I ever did anything to need a spank'n!
  4. Dad is a strong and amazing example of a Christian and God Fearing Man!
  5. After Justin and I were married, Dad missed seeing me (since I did live with them and saw them every day) and asked if we could have dinner with them once a week. We did for a while and still have dinner at least a few times each month together. Thankfully we only live 3 miles away!
  6. Dad can fix anything!
  7. He always tells me to call if I need anything and he really does mean it. He has rescued me when my power went out and Justin was out of town!
  8. Dad's two saying's when we were young: 1)'Be a leader not a follower' 2) regarding driving 'keep your head on a swivel, know what is going on around you' . Both are great pieces of advise and have stayed with me to this day.
  9. I love that my Dad loves Justin as if he was is own. He love Amanda (Chris' wife) as if she was his as well.
Dad, I love you and thank you for all that you do for me. I couldn't have a better Dad. Thanks for your friendship and your guidance. Love you Lots!
