Tuesday's Tribute: Dad

My dad just celebrated his 61st birthday last week so I wanted to write something special to honor him!

First of all, a picture of the girls with Grandpa celebrating with paninis, soup and of course, cake!



My dad would do anything for almost anyone. He has such a giving heart when it comes to his time and talents - especially to our family. I can't even count the times he has come to our rescue the past few years. If it means watching Claire on a whim, picking up a can of soup for me when I don't want to pack the kiddos up, helping us with our cars or household projects... I could go on and on! He is someone that I can talk to about most everything. He is sensitive. He is a listener and an observer. He NEVER hangs up the phone without saying "I love you" and never leaves us without a hug and kiss. He's so funny calling me often to just check up on "his girls". God has truly blessed our family so much with him!

Dad, you are such a wonderful man, dad and especially, grandpa! I LOVE watching you with the girls and the light they bring to your eyes. I pray that they have years and years to come to build up memories with you and mom. I love that I feel comfortable talking to you about anything - we don't have to agree on everything but I know we respect each other's opinions. I really thank you for that. Thank you for being such a positive light in my life. I love you!
