So it's a couple days late, BUT there's no reason not to honor my dad when the opportunity is given.
I am extremely blessed.
I think my dad is one of the greatest men I have ever met.
He's funny, kind, and insanely generous. He makes me laugh harder than anyone (except for my husband). He always encourages me and lets me know that he loves being my dad. I have no doubt in my mind that he is delighted that I am his daughter. He has always taken care of me, and he has always been a strong presence in my life, even after my parents divorce.
I can tear up just thinking about how much I love my dad. I'm so thankful that God specifically chose him to be mine. It makes me sad to hear of people who have estranged or difficult relationships with their fathers because it's so clear that the relationship we have with our dads is meant to be special.
I wish I had more time to go home and get some older pictures of my dad when we were younger, but these will have to do.
I love my dad and can't imagine life without him.
