The Best Dad

 wrote this poem for my dad for Father's Day and sent it to him because I wasn't able to spend the day with him.  He said that would have cried if he hadn't been so busy when he was reading it.  There are a lot of inside family things that you might not understand, but just know that he did and that's all that matters.

The Best Dad

The Best Dad gives awesome hugs
he squeezes tight and never shruggs

The Best Dad does whatever he can
to make sure you are happy because he's your biggest fan

The Best Dad doesn't jump to conclusions
he listens to what you have to say and doesn't form his own illusions

The Best Dad spoils his little girls
he just can't resist those sweet little smiles and those cute little curls

The Best Dad will wake you up in the morning
even when you're 25 and married he still gives you a 10 minute warning

The Best Dad points to his cheek when he wants a kiss
There's no pecks allowed, but a good kiss with twisting of the head and humming, no other family does this

The Best Dad always drives the no air-conditioned car
he may complain, but that's a tough job.  He's a star

The Best Dad is very picky about who you marry
but how can you resist the lovable Gary

The Best Dad continues to take care of you even when you're all grown up
He even takes in your dog, she's such a cute little pup

The Best Dad tells you how much he loves you every chance he gets
he holds his thumb and pointer finger barely apart and pinches you to bits

The Best Dad in the whole wide worls is Papa Bear
and I thank God for him every night when I say a prayer

 Happy Father's Day Daddy!!!

This one's an oldie but a goodie!

Our Father/Daughter dance at my wedding!
