Stubborn, determined, hard working. Quiet but a difference maker, serious but still fun loving and silly when the time is right. I have his green eyes and most of his facial features, too.
As I reflected upon our relationship today, I realized that I get these things from him; they just aren’t my own developed character traits. He has taught me well and I am blessed to have a role model like my daddy.
I may be nearly grown up, but I still need my dad (as was instanced by my knee surgery. Every single morning he would come down and quietly put the CPM motion machine under my leg and turn it on—without disturbing my sleep that came seldom during that week. I will never forget how caring and concerned he was during that time)…and am lucky he is still here to continue to guide me on the right path. I know he just wants me to be happy.
I love you, Dad. Happy Father’s Day to the best man and role model that anyone could ask for.
