I REALLY DO HAVE THE MOST AMAZING FATHER!
A father who taught his children the difference between right and wrong, as well as all about the little gray areas in between.
Do something great for someone because you want to, not because you expect something out of it.
A father who shared his knowledge and wisdom on topics that we otherwise never would have learned.
My love of farm animals and gardening definitely comes from you.
A father who stressed the importance of family.
Especially during long car rides when a certain brother was being totally annoying.
A father who could always find interesting ways to make a routine outing fun.
I’m still surprised we never flew off the back of the truck or trailer when you hit those huge bumps.
A father who taught us that faith was worthwhile.
I appreciate all of the years you made us attend church, as well as the candy bar that I got to pick out each Sunday after the service.
A father who could surprise us with the simple things in life.
I miss our impromptu trips to town for ice cream; it’s not nearly as special when it takes less than five minutes to find an ice cream joint.
A father who wasn’t afraid to discipline us.
Although I still don’t believe that it hurt you more than it hurt me.
A father who “allowed” us to have pets.
Don’t think we didn’t notice how Mom always made animals appear, and you would feign complete ignorance.
A father who taught us to capture the moment.
You started our love of photography, each time you put a camera in our hands, or bought us a roll of film.
A father who taught us that no matter what we did wrong, you still loved us.
Sorry about all of the things I ever did to make you upset, worry, or just want to pull your hair out. Imagine all of the things you never actually found out about!
THANK YOU FOR BEING SUCH A WONDERFUL FATHER, AND CONTINUING TO TEACH, SHARE, SURPRISE, DISCIPLINE, ENCOURAGE, AND LOVE US!
Faith, Hope, Love & Luck
