A Very Special Day

Today is a very special day- it’s my Dad’s birthday!

Happy Birthday to the man who taught me some of life’s most valuable lessons.

That laughter is the best medicine.


And if laughing doesn’t help, go for a run. There is no point in getting yourself worked up over nothing, and running always helps a bad mood.

Happy birthday to the man who taught me how to love unconditionally.


That no matter what happens in life, you can always find the good in things.

He also taught me that people always come into your life for a reason. Even if they are no longer in your life, there was a reason that they were, and you have to remember that, no matter what.

Happy birthday to the man that taught me that you must walk before you run. You have to work hard for things that you want in life, they are not just given to you.

And sometimes you may fall down, but you have to just pick yourself right back up. NEVER give up.


Happy birthday to the man that I always hope to make proud, no matter how old I get.

He’s never let me down, and I hope that I never let him down.

He’s always the one I call when I’m having a hard time and he always has the best advice. I don’t know how he does it, but he always has the perfect thing to say.


Happy birthday to the man that can ALWAYS make me laugh, especially in the times I need it most. (remember the moment before you walked me down the aisle Dad? Smile )


Also to the man who knew when he first met Craig that he would be a good husband. I swear he has some kind of intuition. That meant everything to me.


Happy Birthday to the man who has been by my side since day one. He has been there through the good and the bad..through the ups and the downs. He has always been my rock.


Happy Birthday to the man, that no matter how old I get, will always be my hero. He will always be the man who taught me life’s biggest lessons. I would NEVER be the person that I am today without him.


Happy Birthday Dad! I love you so much!
