Father's Day Tribute

Happy Father's Day!!

Today we celebrate the men in our lives that we call dad. Some people don't have a father that they can honor today, some due to absenteeism, some death, some don't even know their fathers. I am blessed beyond what I deserve because not only do I have a father who is involved and loves me but he is one of my best friends. He has always been there for me. I don't remember any of the big moments in my life where my dad wasn't there. I am sure he missed some things over the past 40 plus years but none that come to mind so they must not have been too important. I am blessed by his example that he has set, and continues to set for me. As many of you know I had a major life decision that I had to make just recently and I keep getting asked, what am I going to do now. I don't really know what my future holds at this point but due to my father's guidance, influence, and example I have a faith that allows me to understand that God has a plan and everything will work out in His time. I don't always understand (most of the time I don't) and I don't always have the patience to be faithful but I do know that without my dad's example I would not be able to handle things when they aren't what I want them to be. So dad, I love you, and thanks for all you have done, and continue to do in our family, in your school, and in your church. You are a blessing to all those that have the privilege of knowing you.
