I can't even imagine where I would be without him.
I started writing this on Father's day, but then I got interrupted by a family baseball game. So, since Father's Day fell on the 20th, here's 20 great things about my Dad. 20 things that make him the best man I know.
- He has 10 children.
- He puts up with every single one of us.
- He still fishes with the baby of the family, even though when they started he was so tired from running around in the sun playing baseball.
- I can't remember a time when he didn't give us everything he had.
- He takes us to Cedar Point, where he has ridden so many kiddie rides that make him sick that he probably lost track about 20 years ago.
- He works 40 hours + every week so my mom doesn't have to work at all.
- He argues with me, but he's
- He didn't kick me out of the house when he found out I had 2 tattoos.
- All he asked for and all he wanted for Father's day was to go to church with every single one of his kids and then eat breakfast.
- Out of all 21 years of my life, I can't remember a time my Dad didn't make it to a ballet recital, basketball game, volleyball game, race, or anything else I might be missing.
- I know he would do anything and everything for any of us kids.
- He and I enjoy 2 things, a good beer, and the Beatles.
- He is a man of God.
- He loves my mother.
- He is always quick with a joke to light up our day.
- He says good morning every day to me, even if that means being late to work.
- He sleeps on the couch on nights that I go out, making sure that I come in OK.
- He knows absolutely EVERYONE within a 50 mile radius.
- He built us a tree fort when we were little. He also built our house.
- He taught us how to add and subtract, play sports, and hammer a nail. We're very well-rounded children. At least I'd like to think we are.
