For as long as I can remember, he has been my biggest fan. He has always believed in me and sometimes, it made me feel like I was superhuman. My dad is like no other dad. He is the one who taught me to be proactive and not reactive to situations in my life. He teased me mercilessly when I fell in love with my husband and made me feel quite comfortable about introducing my future husband to him. He never intimidated any of my guy friends but always offered advice and light conversation to put people at ease. I love my dad with all my heart!
When I started college, he worked like crazy to make sure my bills were paid and told everyone(including those who knew me and those who did not) how proud he was of my accomplishments. He sure is my biggest fan! Even though my dad is a pastor and a spiritual leader, he has always led his life in a very practical way and does not separate his spiritual life from his everyday life. They are one and the same. This has taught me not just to be a Christian on Sundays but every day of the week. Thank you daddy. I hope you will live really long for my kids to meet you one day and see you with the same adoring eyes as I see you! I love you!
