Just last week I called my dad. He's been in Utah, so I haven't seen him in awhile. His answering machine picked up and it made me so sad. I didn't like that he wasn't immediately there for me to talk to and get advice from. After I hung up my thoughts turned to my mom, and how she's been gone for so long, and it made me SO happy that I can just call up my dad whenever I want. The weight of the word "father" fell upon me that I was brought to tears of gratitude for a father who I still have on this earth who loves me and is there for me when I need him. And he's such a great dad. He spoils me, he's funny, he's strong, he's the most gracious person I know, and he loves to have fun, whether it's playing games or fishing in Yellowstone. He lives life to it's fullest. And because I love to add tons of pictures to anything I post, I will do just that.
This is my mom and dad in Hawaii. I love this picture.
Here's my dad fishing in Yellowstone. He and Jake went for a week. Father and son-in-law camping out for that long, and they even had fun. Amazing!
This is one of the only, if not the only picture with all sibling and dad in it. Add in 13 grand kids and you've got his posterity!
Here's my dad playing a fishing game at Jaxon's 3rd birthday. What an awesome grandpa!
We sure like this guy Dad, I love you. What more can I say? I'm glad you're still around to answer my calls. Let's keep it that way for a long time okay?
Love, your daughter
