Daddy's Girl - 06/13/14
It's a couple of days early, but I'm thinking about my dad this morning.
My dad and I have always been close. I'm the oldest of three girls and even though my dad traveled a lot while we were growing up, we had a close relationship. I will always be a daddy's girl.
The list of the reasons why I'm thankful would be long, but some of them include:
Dad taught me to never give up and always give 100%
He showed me the importance of hard work and lead by example with his work ethic
Dad showed me the importance of self-worth by learning how to do the things I wanted to do (instead of expecting someone else to do it for me)
He taught me how to drive a stick shift, how to drive a boat and which way to steer when towing a trailer.
He taught me the importance of gun safety and taught me how to shoot
Dad let me put bows in his hair when I was little
He took me shopping, camping, and fishing and sat through all of my dance recitals
Dad worked his tail off so I could come out of college debt free
There are so many other lessons and examples connected to my dad - too many to list.
The amazing thing now, is that he's teaching these things to my children. Watching him all over again brings back great memories for which I'll always be grateful.
Thanks, Dad. I love you!
