Dear Daddy...

Dear Daddy,

Thank you for teaching me how to ride a bike and taking us on long rides to get ice cream sandwiches every Sunday afternoon. Thank you for kissing my boo boos and cleaning my scrapes. Thank you for watching and applauding all of our silly home plays and puppet shows. Thank you for playing board games with us, even after a long day at the office. Thank you for coaching my soccer team and leading The Eagles to the championship game. Thank you for building us 3 amazing tree forts for our many adventures. Thank you for making us pancakes on Saturday mornings. Thank you for teaching me the importance of chores and having a daily schedule. Thank you for reading the Bible and praying with us during "circle time" at night and encouraging us in our daily walk with Christ. Thank you for teaching me responsibility and diligence. Thank you for not freaking out when you taught me how to drive, even though I was (and still am) not that great. Thank you for fixing my car and rescuing me on the side of the road. Thank you for praying for me. Thank you for giving me what I needed and teaching me the importance of working hard at any given task. Thank you for encouraging me to pursue God's path for my life. Thank you for moving me to and from apartments in college and helping me learn how to stand on my own two feet. Thank you for giving Jonathan approval to date and marry me. Thank you for giving me a beautiful wedding and walking me down the isle. Thank you for the godly wisdom and experience that is always available to me. Thank you for always being proud of me and loving me no matter what.

Thank you for being the best Dad in the world. I love you!
