Thankful for this man...

The man that fell in love with my mom,
The man that proved that being a dad doesn't mean you have to have the same genes,

The man that was there to love me as his own
the moment I was born.
A Godly man and role mode
a man of integrity,
the leader of the house,
the hardworking provider,
the man whose stubborn personality is so similar to mine it, often times, clashed,
the man who I have grown to love and respect more and more the older I get,
the caring, sarcastic, trustworthy and honest man, my hero, my Dad.

The man who put his reputation on the line so that we could have
a father/daughter dance we will never forget.

Not the whole dance, but better lighting so it is clearly noticed
that we know how to

I am so thankful for this man. Happy Birthday, Dad!

I love you,
