I am lucky to have an amazing, supportive, kind, and funny man for a father. He's always been there for us and taught us a lot about what a man should be. Since getting married, I have a new level of appreciation for him, since he has become a dad for Mr LikesIt too. It will be some time before he's a gradfather, but watching him with little kids makes me so excited for it - he's going to be great at that, too.
I mean come on, he has a tractor, which pretty much makes him the coolest person on the world.
We attended a funeral for the father of two friends of mine from high school yesterday, so I am feeling particularly appreciative to have my dad around. Life is short, good men are in short supply.
Love you, Daddy.
