There is this quote that I have always liked that says, "Someday my prince will come, but my Dad will always be my King." I know it's a little corny but it always makes me smile because of how true it is! He has always been my number one man. He has always been on the top! God gave me the best Father in the world. I love him so much. I know that I could not put into words all that my Dad means to me. I'm so lucky! He has taught me so much in the 22 years I have lived in his house. He has shown me how to be a REAL friend (even when it is taken for granted), how to love, even when love is not returned. He has a love for God and a burden for souls that is incredible. He gives his whole heart to the church and the ministries he is involved in. He knows how to laugh at himself. He has real joy and shows it all the time! But he is also very serious and dedicated when he needs to be. He is faithful and consistent in every aspect of life. I love that I can talk to him about anything. He is my Father but he is also one of my closest friends. I respect him more than any man in the world. He has proven himself over and over. He has always been there whether it was just to talk, or get on me about something, or give me a hug after a long day, or tease me about my 'moments', laugh with, walk with, pray with, or even to just give a good back rub. :) So, even though I have found my prince I can honestly say that my Dad truly.....in all areas of life...at least in my eyes.....is my KING!
Happy 51st Birthday Daddy!!
I love you!!
