Happy Father’s Day to the man who has made it virtually impossible for me to find someone even comparable. He has always been my “go-to”, the man who I call when I need help – whether it’s car problems, finance questions, or general every day knowledge that I should know, but instead I call him and he either fixes it or tells me what to do!
It’s no doubt I’ve always been a daddy’s girl and I will always be, we’ve had a special bond my entire life and I am forever thankful for that! He’s my personal handyman – he’s installed floors, appliances and painted my entire place and even better, he does it all for a Jersey Mike’s sub!!!
Not only that, but he has never made me “want” for anything, although he has always instilled values in me and made me get my first job at the age of 16. (Even though it was because I got in a car accident and he made me pay for it! I hated it then, but thankful for it now!)
Thank you Pa for. . .
Allowing me to crawl up your back like you were a tree as a child whenever a dog came around. . .
Letting me steal your undershirts to sleep in (they were the BEST!). . .
Teaching me how to drive a manual car. . .even though you waited WAY TOO LONG to tell me that you can hit the gas and release the clutch at the same time. . .
The MANY Saturday’s we spent together at our UPS Store and the lunches from Rib Shack you always bought because God forbid you stay at the store by yourself. . .
Giving me the “the look” when I got in trouble as a teenager, only to laugh with me when I said “everyone is scared of you, but I’m not. . .”
Loving and supporting me in every decision I make and being there with me to see it through!
Happy Father’s Day – so glad/thankful I could spend it with you and the history lesson I received driving down Monument Avenue 😉 I love you!!!
