Because I took a long break from blogging, I missed a lot of posts. One of which was a tribute to my great Dad on his Birthday. It was April 16th and although it is a few weeks late, I still want to write that post and tell him how much I love and appreciate him.
My dad has the greatest humor. Most people when they first meet him think he is very serious, but he actually has quite a dry sense of humor and so people don’t always catch the sarcasm. He’s always making me laugh, either from a joke or by teasing me.
Because my mom went back to work when I was in Kindergarten, my dad and I had a lot of one-on-one time when I was a kid. I don’t think many people get to say that. His office was at home and so whenever I needed him, he was always there. I was and still am his baby girl because he created so many memories that really bonded us together. When I danced with my dad at my wedding, it was one of the most bittersweet moments I’ve ever had. I could barely look him in the eye because I was so emotional. I know it was hard for him to see his little girl get married, but I think he’s learned that I’m still the same!
One of the greatest things about my dad is how charitable he is to me and to everyone around. As the Bishop, he seeks out the individual and always makes them feel loved and welcomed. As a father, he is always giving to his children. From blessings to just opening up his wallet, my dad always knows when we are in need and helps to fill that need through his love and hard work.
I hope you have a great year, Dad!
