today is my day’s birthday, and I am reminded just how grateful I am for him. my dad is one of the hardest working people I’ve ever met and has always gone above and beyond at every job he’s done, often without any recognition or compensation for his extra time and work. my dad is also loyal, loving, and taught me to love reading and laughing, to never let anyone leave hungry (if food is a love language, it is definitely his!), and to apologize when I’ve hurt someone. dad, thanks for being such an amazing example of what I wanted in a husband (and someday father for my kids.) I’m so glad you’re my dad! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
