My Daddy

I love my dad. He is truly a wonderful man. Today is his birthday and we had a little party for him yesterday. He's the kind that doesn't want a big fuss, but the grandkids decided a long time ago that he had to have a party. You can't have a birthday and not have a party (the gospel according to Makiah).

I am blessed to have such a great dad and my kids have a fabulous "gwampa". He adores them and they him. There is much to adore in him. I don't have enough space to tell you all the wonderful qualities of my papa, so I won't try, because I am sure I won't do him justice! So I'll just name a few wonderful things about him:

~~He loves God and serves God faithfully.
~~He loves his family and has made and continues to make sacrifices for them.
~~He is real, whatcha see is what ya get.
~~He teaches a mean Bible lesson. The man has skills!

I love him dearly. If you couldn't tell. ~~Smile~~

Grandpa and Daniel yesterday.

Best thing to do for your heart: Go to church today.

I just love Gwampas who are amazing Daddies as well. My children are blessed to have such a Gampa.

Daniel is so beautiful. Have you heard back about his CAT-Scan?

What a lovely tribute to your Dad! Love the picture of him with Daniel. And I agree with Boy Mom - Daniel is adorable!!!

Happy Birthday to Gwampa. I think there is a special blessing in being a grampa, seeing that I know from experience.
