Happy Father’s day to this man. The man who taught me to be tough. The man who taught me to fish, to hunt, to swim, and to love the lake with a fierce passion. The man who sacrificed everything he had to make sure I was taken care of. The man who taught me to mind my manners, and to be nice to other people, even when they aren’t being nice back. The man who taught me to always, always finish a task to the best of my ability-and not to quit until you’re finished. The man who taught me that Jesus comes first, no matter what. The man who loved me, my brother, and my sister with all his heart, and who now loves all his grand babies even more. :). I love you, Daddy- thank you for all these things; I wouldn’t be who I am today without you.
