Libby's Honor Challenge 1/5/12

Sunday, February 05, 2012

Today I wish to honor my dad. He has encouraged and supported most of my decisions in life. I know that he wanted a different job for me, but he suported my choice to become a teacher. He taught me to drive a manual transmission. He drove me back and forth to college for four years. He has built and repaired numerous things for me over the years. He was there to comfort me after two car accidents and two trips to the hospital. I don't ever remember a time that he has not supported, comforted, and loved me. (Yes, he set and reforced boundaries when needed.)

Since he has retired, I have seen a new side of him. The volunteer jobs he has taken have surprised me. He is such a caring and compassionate person. I love you, dad.

    Your Dad sounds like he was cut from the same cloth as MY Dad. So, here's to honoring my Dad.

Always there. Always supportive. Always knew which boundaries were important to enforce and when to "let it go". I'm still trying to learn that one! Talk about a WONDERFUL cook! He taught me a lot about the art of making a really fantastic meal out of what you have on hand. He taught me TONS about the value of repurposing things -- I can't tell you how many pieces of furniture I helped him refurbish! Dad is my hero!! Here's to you dear Dad!!!
