I have always said and will say again and again that -
I have the best dad in the universe.
And this is why he is the best -
My dad was always there for me.
If I was out as a teenager and needed a ride home, I knew that I could always count on my dad to come and get me.
My dad would always stand up for me.
When I was in grade 10 and unable to get into a math class, my dad marched down to the school and made sure that they had a spot for me which is a funny story in itself, eh dad?!
My dad could always bring a smile to my face.
If you know my dad, you will know that he likes to laugh and be silly. I really don't think he has a serious side to him. He is a very lighthearted, positive and happy person.
My dad took care of my needs and wants.
My dad was always a hard worker and we never lacked for anything growing up - at least we didn't think we did. We weren't rich by any means but always had enough. As a teenager, he also knew how important it was to have money in my pocket and gas in my (his) car. He was always very generous with his time and resources. A couple of times I've even received flowers from my dad at work. How great is that?
My dad loves my kids and they think grandpa is the greatest.
I think this is because my dad thinks he is a 'kid' himself. They used to love it when grandpa was silly and even to this day as grown ups they think highly of grandpa.
I love you dad - you really are the best!
Happy Father's Day
