It was my Dad's birthday, yesterday, and we helped him celebrate-
that's why I couldn't write this blog yesterday! :)
My Dad is a Dad that every girl would want! He loves his family and he loves his God and he encourages me to be better at both of those. I'm pretty sure that every girl thinks her Dad is the best Dad, but I really do know that I got one of the best ones around!
The picture on the left is a picture that whenever I look at I remember why I love my Daddy so much. That day, he called, just to see if he could come up and help me out. My Dad is such an "intune" guy and is so compassionate that he knew I really needed some help that day...it was a HUGE blessing for me to have him there and it definitely was something that helped get me through one of the harder weeks of my life. In fact, I think the two times in my life that my Dad has meant the most to me was that day, when he just came, held both of my kids on his lap and snuggled them and hugged me as I cried and when he came to visit me in the hospital after Hailey was born. She's his first grandchild and he was pretty excited to see her, but instead of running to see her right away- he came in the room, gave me a hug and told me how proud he was of me and what a great job I did. I guess that's what I really love about my Dad- he's so compassionate and caring and he takes the time to let me know how important I am to him. I know that my Dad definitely is a great Dad and I am continually thankful that God blessed me so greatly by putting me in his family! I love you, Dad, and happy birthday.
