Happy birthday Daddy-o!
I really wish I could be home a week earlier than planned so that we could be with you on your birthday. I'm so thankful for all the time I got to spend with you this year in Ukraine and Paris and in the states...more time than I've gotten to spend with you in my adult years! It was so special getting to have memories with you in those countries.
I'm so thankful you're my daddy. I think back to your military days and your commitment to our family and to this country. You and mom have taught us how to love, how to cherish, and how to have fun as a family. I long for my own family to be just like us one day, with the long dinners at the table, the dancing and singing, and the non stop laughing we have when we're together.
Thanks for being a man of God...for being our one vivid example of what a follower of Christ and godly leader of a family looks like.
I just love you so much, Daddy! You're incredible and the first man I've ever loved.
Can't wait to see you and give you a huge hug next week!
Happy Birthday, Daddy!
