I didn't spend that much time with him as a child and only grew really close with him through my children and my adult years. He encourages me so much. He shows such pride in who I am and what I do that I can't help but feel good about myself just by talking to him.
When I am having issues and maybe feeling guilty about my parenting style or feeling less than adequate about something that I am trying to accomplish, I simply call my Dad. He listens to me and hears me out then he states his opinion and then he just reminds me I am human, I am strong, he is proud of me and I can do anything and some how when I hang up the phone I feel better. I know he is there and he has my back and I feel better. My daddy means everything to me and I am so thankful for our relationship!
Here are some photos from our Birthday dinner today.
This is the Birthday Boy himself! :)
Behind the plate there is my cousin Jennifer who was at our dinner but wouldn't let me take her photo.
