Happy Birthday, Dad!

My dad's birthday was two days ago. He has had a profound impact on many lives; especially mine. He's not perfect, no one is, but he's always been my number 1 best dad. Here are a few of the things I've picked up from him over the years:

Drive on the top half of your gas tank
Check your oil
If WD-40 can't fix it, duct tape can
Making peace is more important than being right
Serve others
Work hard
Trees are for climbing
Support your leaders and don't turn down callings
Live within your means
Family comes first
Shovel snow and keep your cars clean
Be kind

There are many more, of course, but the most important thing I learned from my dad is that I'm special and he loves me.

I love you too, Dad.

I agree, your Dad is an amazing person! The only thing is that I don't remember him being so old. When did that happen? ;)

That is a lovely blog to your Dad I'll have to be sure he reads it. I know he will really appreciate it.

Hope all is well with you.

Love Ya,

That's sweet! Sounds like a good guy! I'm feeling okay -it's just the pregnancy. You can start thinking about making me some more AWESOME blankets!!! I'll know in about 7 or 8 more weeks what we're having! :)

I love that you posted that. It made me think about Dad and all that he has taught me, and what type of life I am living. I really need to improve on some things to make my dad proud of me.
