Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Today is my Daddy's birthday.    I am so blessed because I have the best Daddy in the entire world.     I wish I could say that I have always been the best daughter in the world.   However, the fact that my Daddy has loved me when I haven't always been so lovable is what makes my Daddy so amazing.    It also is what makes my Daddy such an incredible example of who Jesus is to me.      So many "experts" say that your first idea of who God is comes from your earthly father.     I believe that is so and is why I have such a wonderful relationship with my Heavenly Father today.    My Daddy has always been loving, kind, compassionate, long-suffering, patient, and caring.     He gives the best hugs on the face of the earth.   

Because of my Daddy's example, I knew what to look for when I started looking for a husband.    He set the standard high which was good.     I believe I married the most incredible man out there.   

And of course, among the many things my Daddy taught me, he taught me about the finer things in life.   Which is why I was raised an Alabama Roll Tide fan!     You can't get any better than that, can you, Daddy?? 

The pic above was taken at the birthday party we gave Daddy (note the Alabama cap) this past weekend.    I will show more pics from that party.... tomorrow!
