Happy Father's Day, Daddy

Sunday, June 19, 2011

All of us are born with a "father," but not everyone can say they have a dad.  It takes special qualities to be a dad. And I'm very proud to have the best dad a girl could ever ask for.

Here are some things my dad has taught me:

• A daddy's love never ends.
• A little sweat never hurt anyone.
• Remember where you came from.
• Hard work pays off in the end.
• Saying thank you, no sir/no mam, yes sir/yes mam, etc. is expected no matter how old you are.
• Pray, everyday.
• Pancakes make the perfect Sunday morning breakfast.
• The Weather Channel is actually entertaining.
• He's always proud of me, even if he doesn't say it out loud.
• A daughter never gets to old to be called a "daddy's girl."
• And the most important thing:  Never settle.

There is no doubt how much I love my dad.  I'm thankful for the caring and loving dad that I have.  Thank you dad for everything — the gifts you've given me have shaped my life and made me the person I am today. I always said, "if I can find a man who loves me half as much as my dad does, I'll be happy."  However, I did better than that — I have a man to loves me just as much as my daddy does.  And not only does he share some of the same qualities that my dad does, I have no doubt he is going to be a wonderful dad, too!

Happy Father's Day, daddy — I love you!  And Happy Father's Day to my Papaw and Uncle Bob... these two men have also made a huge impact in my life. 

Uncle Bob, Papaw and Wayne (my dad)
