there are no words to express my love and gratitude for my amazing father. I wish I had eloquent words to to tell you how my dad has helped me become me. it's not enough to say he's been an example of love, patience, hard work, joy, kindness, intelligence, and thoughtfulness to me all my life. he is the greatest story-teller and breakfast maker. he trusted me, encouraged me, and celebrated me in all my trials and successes.
most importantly he has help me understand unconditional love. I've always been blessed to know my dad loves me. when I've needed to imagine how God loves his children I think of the way my dad loves his kids.
I could not love him more.
