A Tribute to My Dad on His Birthday

Yesterday we spent the day with my Dad.  We had the day off of work for Labor Day and my Dad’s Birthday is today, so it worked really well for us to celebrate.  We had a lot of fun, got to catch up, I got to save them a couple of hours of headache by fixing the computer, etc. 

But as I was talking over lunch with my Dad I began to realize how much he’s given me.  I don’t know if I’ve ever realized how much of my personality comes from him.  My whole style or relating to people sometimes is uniquely from my Dad.  I definetly am my own person, I’m walking a different road than I think he is walking down, but I love my dad. He’s given me more than I think he or I will ever know.

So dad, here’s to you, on your birthday.  You’ve been a blessing from God my whole life, but I’m finally starting to realize it.  I love you dad.
