For Daddy

Dear Daddy,
Happy Fathers Day!  I wish I could be with you to celebrate this special day set aside for Fathers.  But, life has us living four hours apart and there is this thing called "work" that gets in the way.  You know all about work, don't you?  You have been the best example of a hard worker any girl could learn from.  Your work ethics are superb!  You have taught me to work hard, do my best, go above and beyond the expectations of others, pitch in when needed and have fun while doing it.  You provided for mom, sissy and I the best way you knew how.  Thank you for that!  I don't think I could ever say thank you enough for all you sacrificed for us.  Thank you for doing without so we could have what we needed and also at times, what we wanted.  Now that I am a parent, I know what that means.

Thank you for your wisdom.  Thank you for teaching me, years ago, how to put gas in my car and keep my car clean and how to drive safely.  Now I am teaching my own daughter those same principals.

Thank you for sharing little gifts with me from your parents that you have saved all these years.  I especially love the roses yard long you gave me that hangs over my bed now.  That is my most special possession!

Thank you for being the best father a girl could ever ever have.  I could go on and on with examples of how wonderful a man you are.  From the bottom of my heart daddy, thank you for your love and example.  You are simply the best daddy a girl could ever ever have.
I love you!

Lovely from a Beautiful Daughter! I think Dad was busting with love as he read this! I have to admit I had not been looking at your blog lately as you have been to busy to post. What a wonderful thing I let slip by. Shann Girl your Dad still enjoyed it very much!
