To my Dad

Yesterday I went to Snowflake and spent the afternoon canning with my Dad. My dad loves to cook and can and spend time in the kitchen. I love this about him. On my way home I started thinking about how well rounded he is. Some of the things he loves to do include: gardening, building things, working on his year supply, hunting, fishing, hashing politics, traveling, and cooking (he can even make bread). These are only a few of the things he does regularly. I love that he is interested in all of these things because I know that I can go to him for help and advice. I also know that he would do anything within his realm of possibilities to help me.

When I was a kid one of my favorite things was to spend time with my Dad. Fortunately for me he was patient enough to let me tag along to many of the places he would go. I especially loved to go with him to work (he had a drywall business when I was young). He was always so willing to listen to me talk and talk and talk.... Now that I am a parent I truly appreciate all the patients he showed toward me when I was a kid and also now that I'm an adult.

I'm so happy that I got to spend some time with him yesterday. It seems like time is flying by so fast right now that I don't get to spend nearly enough time with the people I love. Thanks Dad for your help yesterday! I love you!
