My Grandpa always made me feel so special and cherished. He wasn't a far off distant Grandpa, rather an involved and interested-in-my-world kind of guy. He was sensitive, kind, generous, and playful (even willing to bear with my Wonder Woman obsession circa 5 ) These are some of the things I'm thankful for about him and some of what I can see he passed onto my dad...
And my Dad took what his dad imparted to him and made it his own.
Dad, thanks for always encouraging me to buzz about and offer my little life to the world (believing maybe it's not that little after all, but could bless and help people).
You are my #1 fan and I am forever grateful that you have built into me kindness, sensitivity, care, a "full of life" heart, a teacher's concern and care, and a vision to go after what you love. These are things you have taught me for sure but mostly just modeled through your daily life.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DADDY-O!
