I Love My Dad

Well, yesterday was Father's Day and I wanted to give a tribute to my wonderful father! My dad is awesome! He is the most wonderful example of Christlike love and living I could have! My dad is the kind of guy who would pull over and help if you're having car trouble. He would give a stranger the shirt off his back. My dad has taught me so much through the way he lives. My dad has always taken care of everyone around him and never asked for anything in return. I am so proud to have a Dad like him! My dad showed me what I wanted in a spouse. Strangely enough my husband even has some of the traits I never thought I wanted in a spouse, like wearing socks with sandals or being completely unable to listen while reading a newspaper. It is sort of endearing when I see bits of my dad in my own husband.

My dad is incredibly supportive. I loved seeing him in the stands at my track meets. I loved knowing that he was proud of me when I did something right.
My dad is so intelligent. He is good with numbers, he is an avid reader and knows tons about church history.

My dad is silly. He always brings a smile to my face. He likes to sing and I have always loved to sing along with him. I remember many Saturday chores being done while singing along with dad to the oldies. He cracks me up when he can sing his Westwood Warrior or BYU song with pride. My dad was very athletic and strong. I can attribute any of my athleticism to him. He is handsome! He has wonderful thick, dark hair. He loves when I rub my fingers through it.

He is a great Papa! He loves children (he did have 9 of them after all).

Dad, I love you! I hope you had a wonderful Father's Day!

Some f my pictures are already packed up, so I regret not having more pictures of my cute young Dad, especially with his mustache.

GREAT post! That second picture of Dad looks just like his dad (and Humphrey Bogart).

HOORAY for a GREAT Dad!! All week as I was posting about Jeff I wanted to post my true feelings & experiences with fathers... but I run into a bit of a bind. My dad isn't a good dad & has left me very scarred, but we all try to pretend we are a happy family... But I did luck out with an amazing step-dad who would claim me as his own & helped me to keep hope in men living up to their fatherly duties! I of course couldn't post all the ugliness of such, because of who reads my blog. And if said ugliness is going to be dug up, it probably shouldn't be because of a post on my blog... hehe. But I thank you for the chance to vent just a little here.. where no one in my family will ever see!! hehe.
