My Daddy...



He's my Daddy. I'm his Jill "Pill".

There's absolutely no one like my Daddy. Why you ask? Here are a few reasons...

- When I go visit my parents and it's time for me to head home, my Dad will still go for his wallet and ask if I have cash. I always find this humorous. I'm 32 years old. I always answer with, "I have a check card." I think it's sweet that he still wants to take care of his girls.

-If I have a question about my car, I still call my Dad. It's not that Alex can't answer my questions, but in my mind, my Dad knows everything about everything and my first reaction is to call him. Luckily, Alex doesn't feel threatened by this. He loves and respects my Dad and they have become close friends over the past 15 years.

-When we go out to eat, I have to be quick to pay because Daddy always grabs the check and insists that he's getting it. Like there's some rule that the parent always pays.

-Growing up, I have always been told that I look like my Daddy. As a little girl, I always wanted for people to say that I looked like my pretty Momma. Once I hit my teen years, I realized that my Daddy is a very good looking man and that this too is a compliment! :)

-If I need ANYTHING...he's there.

-My Dad never wavers in his faith. He knew that he needed to discipline his children, as well as disciple them. Over my 32 years, he has been a shining example of what I want to be in my Christian walk.

Daddy, I love you so much. Maybe the reason that I think you're so cool is because we're so much alike, even Momma says so. :) Thank you for everything you've done for me over the years. I hope you have a wonderful Father's Day!
