Things we forget to thank our Dads for.

A father is the first man a daughter loves. He’s her role model. He’s her teacher. He’s her provider and most of all he’s her best friend.

  1. He gives the best hugs.
  2. He knows how to make you laugh until it hurts…
  3. With stories that make you laugh until you cry.
  4. His sense of humor matches your own.
  5. He gives the best advice.
  6. And always throws you a little cash here or there.
  7. He’s your biggest fan…
  8. Loudest cheerleader…
  9. And number one supporter.
  10. He listens even when you ramble.
  11. He always tells you that you’re beautiful…
  12. Even when you don’t feel you are.
  13. He knows who you really are…
  14. And has taught you to take pride in that.
  15. He forgives your mistakes…
  16. And helps you to learn from them.
  17. He always gets you what you want on your birthday…
  18. And spoils you when it isn’t.
  19. He builds you up when the world knocks you down.
  20. Even though he might be growing old, he still acts like a kid at heart.
  21. He is the best teacher you’ve ever had…
  22. And he always seems to know everything.
  23. He takes care of you when you’re sick…
  24. And let you play hookie that day you weren’t.
  25. His laugh will make you laugh.
  26. His strength has made you stronger.
  27. His belief in you has made you achieve your goals.
  28. He always believed in your dreams… even the crazy ones.
  29. He has set the bar high for expectations…
  30. While spoiling you rotten and ruining any chance of someone meeting them.

And even those times we run out the door with our keys in one hand and cell phone in the other, just know that we appreciate you. Just know that we love you. Just know we wouldn’t be able to live without you.

Thank you for all you do. Thank you for all you are. And thank you for making me the person I am today.
