A couple of weeks ago we had a 50th birthday party for my dad. We did a little something for him on his birthday, but my mom waited a few weeks after that to have his actual party. By waiting, we actually caught him completely by surprise (something that rarely happens with my dad).
My dad has been an awesome father to me. I can honestly say that he is my number one spiritual hero; that means a lot. I have told him before that if I can be as good of a father to my children as he has been to me, I will be satisfied. Thanks dad, for everything. I love you!
