Happy Father's Day!!!

I've always liked this picture, although I don't remember having it taken.  Daddy was in the army and we were stationed at Sandia Base in New Mexico.  I really don't remember much about that time except that I started kindergarten there. 

I've come to see this photo as representing our relationship.  Daddy has always been by my side no matter what, holding my hand if I needed him to.  He could be tough when he needed to be (and I gave him enough reasons to be) and he could be and still is funny most of the time.  He loves a good joke both to tell and to hear.

I realize as I'm typing, I could write pages about him.  I could tell you fishing stories, moving stories, road trip stories and Yahtzee stories.  I could tell you broken leg stories, teaching me to drive stories and watching football stories.  I could tell you what he's like as a grandpa and great-grandpa.  I could tell you so many things but the most important thing is that he loves me and my sisters and there isn't anything he wouldn't do for us. 

We live over 1,000 miles apart and I wish I could be with him today to give him a hug and tell him in person, I love you and I'm glad that you're my daddy!!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads and to the moms who have to fill the dad shoes too!!!!!
