Today is a special day and I'm feeling rather sentimental. My Dad has been one of the greatest blessings in my life and today is his birthday. I wish I were home to give him a big hug. At 26, I'm still such a daddy's girl. He's taught me everything, big and small.
He's taught me how to be independent and brave and how to take chances. At every job interview or presentation or scary unknown, I really feel like he is right there with me - cheering me on. But more than my hero, Dad is the most patient man I know, mainly because he showed my seventeen year old self how to drive a truck, throw a punch and use pepper spray when I moved to LA. (That took some time.)
Happy Birthday, Daddy. I love you!
