I have to give a shout out to my dad! Today is his birthday!!!!! What did he do so far on his birthday - he told me he went & got his horse some new shoes! There's a horse lover for you! But some of you have heard me talk about my dad in lessons or just in conversation - my dad is awesome! I was thinking of some things that I remember about him.
*He was a great example of a Christian father - I watched him serve as a Deacon in the Baptist church for most of my growing up years!
*He's the one we call - even today - if something is broke & we need to know what to do
*He's the one who gets excited when he sees his daughter has knitted an actual sock!!!
*He's the one who taught me to love storms & sit out in the middle of them - wanting it to get windier & rain harder!
*He's the one who loves little kids & can entertain them for hours with things just out in nature
*He's the one who took me up to a little town of Dale, Indiana - where he grew up - each year & showed me what a real small town was!
*He's the one who would trade any of his children in for more horses!!!! Just kidding - well, maybe he would trade my brother - JOKING!
*He's a true cowboy who does AMAZING things with horses! You'd really be jaw-dropped on some things!
*He's the one who would make some "special bread" for me for breakfast every weekend when I was little - or drive down to get donut holes on Sunday before church!
I could say SO many things - my dad is just awesome! And yeah, can you tell - no matter how old a girl can get - she can always be her daddy's girl!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD! I LOVE YOU!!!!!
