To My Daddy...
...Whose hugs make you feel as you are the most important and loved person in the world.
...Who never failed to make me feel beautiful no matter how gawky and awkward I felt/feel.
...Who never gave up on me despite the number of mistakes I made and number of nights he tried to explain Algebra to me. (I'm sorry I still don't get it.)
...Who made the dinner table a place where you didn't only get nourishment for the body, but nourishment for the soul.
...Who taught us to find the laughter in every situation. (We still get in trouble for laughing at some very inappropriate moments, don't we?)
...Who taught us what love is by loving Mom for 41 years (and counting).
...Who set a high bar for the men in our life by treating us like ladies and showing us what a true Christian man of integrity is supposed to be.
I am so lucky. Happy Birthday, Daddy! I love you.
