to raise a family.

Blahgging has fallen to the wayside lately, but today calls for an enthusiastic, “HAY!”

Happy Father’s Day, Daddy!

My dad is definitely a character… one that I love dearly and cannot wait until the next time we get to spend time together.

Dad recently sent me an email that referenced a lanyard that he found in our home…

“To the casual observer it would register as foo foo kid crap while we have 50 unused key chains that would work better.  To us it represents yrs of how much fun a family can be when you have love.  Money, sacrifice, & hard work mean nothing except it paved the road to success for my goal; to raise a family.”

My dad has expressed before that all he ever wanted to be was a father.

This year, it hit me more than ever. I am a part of something that someone wanted more than anything.

I can’t help but dwell on that.

And the fact that my dad is hilarious, loving, talented, genuine… well, that makes it even more amazing that that person, my Daddy, wanted me… wanted us all… my mom [his love], my sister [his soulmate], my brother [his best friend], and me.

Thank you, Daddy, for wanting us all more than anything. We love you dearly.

Enjoy this day of celebrating being a father… being a family.
