My Dad

I just wrote a post about my Mom, and now I want to share
a post about my wonderful Dad.
Tomorrow is Father's Day.
I am somewhat beginning to see my Dad through new eyes now
that my sweet husband will become a Daddy at the end of this year.
I am so thankful for my Dad.
He truly lives his life to be an example for his children.
He does not simply tell us with his words how we need to act.
He lives it out.
He is an extremely hard worker.
He is a planner.
He is organized.
He takes our Mom on dates and little getaway trips.
He took us on adventures like bike rides, four wheeler rides, jeep rides,
snorkeling excursions, and snow skiing trips.
He did morning devotionals with us before school.
He prayed with each of us individually before bed every night.
He is a giver to others.
He went to ball games and ballet recitals.
He gave piggyback rides.
He swam with us in the ocean so we wouldn't be afraid.
He stood with me on our back patio during hurricane Opal holding my hand and told me
there was nothing to be afraid of because God would always protect us. He said there is never any storm too big for God.
On my wedding day during our Father-Daughter dance, he told me
his children are his greatest treasure.
I am so proud to call him my Dad.
I am so thankful for his example and influence in my life.
There is nothing better than a Daddy who prays for his children, supports them
no matter what, and loves them unconditionally.
Happy Father's Day 2014!
