He loves big
He gives big
He is affectionate and kind
He is a dreamer and taught us to think outside the box
I love this pic of dad with my Emily!
and this picture, loving on my momma! I love how they adore each other, they are such an example of making a marriage work. They met and married after knowing each other only 8 weeks I think it is safe to say that they beat the odds. They are not perfect but they have a strength in knowing who they are and the consequences in choices that is inspiring.
so I am very thankful for my dad, for the man he is, the father he is and the pappa he is to my girls. His own dad died when my dad was only 2 years old, his mom remarried when he was 13 and when he was 19 he was finally able to call his step dad "dad" for the first time and loved him and treated him as his dad for the rest of Grandpa's life. Having no father for the most impressionable time in his life makes the fact that my dad is so terrific even more amazing.
I love you forever daddy
