Happy Birthday to the First Man i ever loved
So glad to have spent another year with you on this earth, your accident last week had us all scared but so glad you are ok.
I thank you for every thing you have ever did from when I was first born to now 31 years later, you still say i'm your little girl even though I am the oldest, I get spoiled by you, I can confide in you, I can share secrets with you.
You always make sure we are home before you can sleep and you have always been that way.
Thank you for raising me to know Jesus, for bringing me to church, for teaching me to follow my heart, thank you for saying Yes when Andrew asked you for me, walking me down the aisle, giving me away. It was the happiest day of my life to have you by my side
When we told you, you were going to be a Grandpa- you were so excited for that first baby, you treat her like a princess, you spoil her in all the right ways . When she was born you drove 9 hours to see her so you could see her for her first day on this earth, i still remember at 10 pm when you came into my room at the hospital and held her for the first time.
How you prayed for me when I was going for my lung surgery, having you walk to the OR doors gave me a peace over the situation.
I could sit here all night and write all the reasons I am thankful for you.
Dad we are so fortunate to have you in our lives.
May this be the best birthday year for you.
