Grateful for 'D'ad

D is for Dad

In addition to being grateful to my Dad for life itself, I am so thankful for the lessons and foundation he instilled in me early on. Discipline, perseverance and hard work; the pillars of who I am today started with my Dad.

I am grateful for him teaching me to ask questions; for often it is the question that can be more telling than the answer. I appreciate his encouragement for me to be independent and to value integrity, in myself and others.

And I must mention his love for Southern California beaches and taco shops. The torch has been passed and my little guy is a chip off the old block.

Date Nights with my hubby. We don't get them often but when we do I love them. I like to reconnect as a couple not just as parents on the same team. I'am thankful for the time we get together.

Mybelle: Great one. I hear date nights are fabulous. It's been too long for me to remember (jk).

Sorry to copy you but I am grateful for all the Dads in my life... My Dad, who taught me so much in the short years I had with him... My step-Dad, who stepped into my life & filled that supportive cheerleader role... My kid's Daddy, who is hands down the best dad ever!... and my Dad-in-law, who has been such a positive influence in our lives & amazing role model to his sons on what a good dad is. :)
