To My Father…

Today I’d like to say a brief word in honor of my knight in shining sweatpants. He is handsome, strong, and if he does say so himself, funny.

Happy Birthday, Pop.

I can’t tell you how blessed I am to have you. Every time I think of where I could be, without a father figure to guide me, I thank God for His blessings. You are half of what holds this family together and I know that you have made Mom one of the happiest women in the world. What more could a daughter ask of her father, but that he be such a role model of fatherhood and a good husband?

I enjoy being able to have enthusiastic discussions with you on the weirdest of topics and that you’ve always encouraged me to learn to think and reason well. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it wasn’t for that.

So thank you. You are the best father I know. You only rarely have to go to work in an office, you never yell, you tolerate the numerous pets we have, and you’ve fostered our creative skills wherever they may lay. To the man who can play Van Halen as equally well as he can paint a masterpiece or reason circles around others:

Happy Birthday. I love you!

“The righteous man walks in his integrity; His children are blessed after him.”

~Proverbs 20:7.
