Happy Birthday Daddy

Happy Birthday Daddy

I won't deny it, I am a Daddy's girl - always have been! This is probably because my Dad is so amazing. He is one of the smartest men I know and supportive of EVERYTHING I do, well except maybe my speeding tickets!

My father and I have the same silly humor. We love to laugh, and more importantly, we love to laugh at stupid things. He does this stupid thing with his hands on his nose that has made me giggle uncontrollably since I was a kid. He always knows how to cheer me up and put a smile on my face.

Dad has the kindest heart. He is always giving, giving, giving to family, friends, his community, charities. He loves to give his children nice things (and I know my brother and Ryan can attest to that)! But, the thing I respect the most about him, is his undying love for my mother. Forty-two years of marriage, and they still find happiness.

My father has also embraced Ryan like his own son. Ryan endured the greatest loss about 5 years ago when his father passed away from illness. He was a lost soul and slowly found comfort knowing that my father was supportive of him. I love how my dad never tried to replace Dave, but he made himself open as a father-figure to Ryan when he was ready. I have watched their relationship grow over the years and it always puts a smile on my face.

He always gives great advice, especially when it comes to big life decisions, and he never judges me. Dad has a way of always providing unbiased advice towards a decision or situation. All of the major decisions in my life have included advice from my parents, not because they drive my life, but because I truly value their opinion and support.

So why say all of this? Well, isn't it obvious? I love my father very much and am thankful to have him in my life. He even still loves me when I cheer on the Wolfpack over his beloved Tarheels!

Love you Dad and Happy Birthday!!!
