Dad's Day

Graduation day,  May 2009.
When I was little I remember this one time I was sitting in the family room, in a little bit of a bad mood. All of a sudden my dad comes come running down the stairs with a laundry basket and pretends to trip and spill all the laundry. Clothes literally went flying everywhere. My frown had suddenly turned upside down, as I started erupting with little girl giggles. He risked getting hurt, just to stumble and make me laugh. Not sure if it was the clothes flying everywhere or if it was him actually falling that really got me.  My dad was my hero.


And he continues to be each day.  Thank you dad, for making me laugh, setting up "tents" in the family room at the town house, for lifting me up to score baskets in a game of bball because I couldn't reach, for listening to me, for not getting mad at me for that speeding ticket, for providing for me, allowing me to go to SPU, and for continually supporting and encouraging me in my career path.


I'm so blessed that God chose YOU to be my dad.  That He hand picked YOU to be Colin and I's dad. I'm so grateful for you and mom instilling in us a good work ethic, family values, and most of all, for teaching us about Christ and His love for us.


  I love you more than you'll know.
Happy Father's day, Dad! And happy birthday tomorrow, too! (:
Love,

  13. Thanks for the kind words Michaela. I love you too!

    I've recycled the laundry prank a few times, but it never seems to work as well as it did that first time.

    Remember that "illustration" that you should never take yourself too seriously.
