Happy Father's Day!!!

I am very thankful for a Heavenly Father who loves me so much, that He put is own Son on the cross to die for me, the sinner that I am. I am also thankful for the earthly father He gave me.

My dad is the sweetest man. He is kind, sensitive, strong, and funny! He is not closed-up, he tells me he loves me and gives the BIGGEST bear hugs ever!

We like to eat Peeps together and an hour can pass quickly when we talk on the phone. Even though we are hundreds of miles apart, I am always thinking of him, and cannot imagine my life without him. God has brought my family through so many things in life, and having my dad as my dad, has made it so much easier. My dad often worked two jobs to support our family. He is always going out of the way along with my mom, to make holidays extra special as a family.
When I got married, my Dad was determined to give me the wedding of my dreams....and he did. He worked so hard from decorating dozens of cookies with "S's" on them, to helping set-up the reception tent the day of the wedding. My dad is also so wonderful with his grandchildren. They light up his life, as I know he does theirs'. He would do anything for them, and has proven that in recent times.

Oh how I love my Dad!

Happy Father's Day to all the the great father's out there!
