Thanks on Thursday

A Younger VersionContinuing project...this week's thanks are:

I am grateful for my dad. He chose to be my dad even when he didn't have to and without him, I would have been lost. He also gives me perspective when I come to him with questions and opinions. He is my friend. He has always brought out the goofy, spunky, and spontaneous side. He taught me to not let things get to me and ruin my day. He rubbed my back at night when I had a nightmare and told me that everything was going to be okay. He always had a lap big enough for me and my sister.

I am thankful for the sun. Today was a beautiful day and it really makes me think about how lucky we all are to have this wonderful planet to live on and enjoy (assuming we don't mess it up). Spring is in the air and the flowers are in bloom, the birds are chirping and the cycle moves on. It is refreshing to see.

I love your Thankful Thursdays. I might take the idea and run with it. :) And I feel the same way about my grandfather.

That is a great pic of your poppy and your loving words are sweetness to your dad as well as myself - he couldn't help falling in love with you, as I knew he would!

I am thankful to him as well, for being such a great dad to you both!
