Happy Birthday Dad

I don't even know were to start here. I woke up in the middle of the night with a head cold and sore throught, and my head is a little cloudy now. I just dialed Joe's number (meaning to dial my parent's house) and when he answered I said, "Happy Birthday!" Joe said, "It's not my birthday." It STILL took me a minute to figure out what just happened. Anyway, I thought I would post 5 things I love about my dad - even though I'm not sure he ever reads this. =)

This is a picture of dad surrounded by his grandkids at his birthday party last year.

1. You are always honest with me.
2. You don't hesitate (and never give a politician answer) when asked for your advice on something.
3. You think everyone should sing out loud.
4. You are always there for everyone (especially when we have car repair needs)
5. You give awsome foot rubs
6. You are great at popping my back
7. You always knew how hard to push me when I was playing ball.
8. You coached my summer team when I played at Mesa High, even though we were HORRIBLE!!
9. You think I can send my pain, whatever it happens to be, to the universe...I haven't made that work yet, but I believe you can do it. =)
10. Like Just really do care!

OK, so that was 10, but in my foggy state I'm sure I still missed a few important ones.

Love you dad,

This is an awesome post! I love how close you are to your parents and your family. It really shows people on the outside (like me) what great parents you have and what a great job they have done with their kids to keep them close! Your post makes me remember my dad. Thanks for the post!
