Thankful Thursday

Today on Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for my DAD! Today is his birthday and although I wish I was able to spend more time with him today, it was good to see him and have some lunch with him. We're going on a date tomorrow and I'm so excited! My dad is my hero...I look up to him and am very proud of him. He has taught me so much about life, love and what's right. There are so many great memories I have with my dad. Some of my favorite are:

#1 - When my mom and dad dropped me off to college at KCC, my dad wrote me a beautiful letter about life and love. He talked about me being successful, watching out for myself, knowing that even though I may feel alone that God is always with me. The letter spoke about how my parents are so proud of me and love me so very much. It talked about their hopes and dreams for my life. I still have this letter and treasure it dearly.

#2 - The day I got married, when my dad walked me down the aisle, I was terrified. Before going into the church I was fine. When the doors opened and I saw all the people looking at me, I felt like I wanted to faint. I remember leaning on my dad for support and he supported me as I walked thru the beautiful church to my prince :) Before he gave me over to Nate he looked in my eyes and kissed my cheek.

#3 - Thru our whole ordeal in Montana I had thought repeatedly, "Dad would know what to do...". The moment I heard my dad's voice on the other end of the phone after we had been rescued, I knew everything was going to be OK. When Nate and I got off the airplane when we got back from our honeymoon my dad was waiting for me. My heart felt full when I saw him! I'll never forget that day!

#4 - Thru our "interruption" a few years ago after we returned from Nashville, my dad was extremely supportive. He never once said "I told you so". He welcomed us home, provided food, shelter and love and gave us a hand up. It was one of the lowest points in my life and I couldn't have done it had my dad not have been so encouraging and loving.

So today, I'm thankful for my daddy! Without him I wouldn't be the women that I am today. I hope I've made him proud!
