Today is my daddy's birthday




He is 72 today. I am very lucky to have a dad that you know is there but who does not interfere with your relationship as a family. He has truly respected that we are married and have a family but at the same time will drive hours to visit for just an hour. He worked hard all his life and came from a small town in Mississippi and without a college degree went on to be a very successful in the furniture business, owning two stores. He has a great sense of humor but is also a person that you know you can respect and trust to lead you. We have been able to vacation with my parents for the last 4-5 years and it is a blessing for my kids to have those memories of all the places we go with them. Happy Birthday Daddy!

You don't know me, but I must say that this post touched me. I am a Dad to three small children and hope to be the type of Father and Grandfather that your Dad is. Thanks for sharing!
