To My Hero

Dad, My Hero

To my hero.

Thank you for every second you have given to me.

Thank you for always putting God first.

Thank you for serving your country with bravery and honor, and instilling in me a love for my country, my family and my neighbor.

Thank you for leading by example.

For being excited with me when I succeeded and holding my hand when I failed.

Thank you for treating my friends like members of the family.

Thank you for the time that you spent with me.

Thank you for teaching me to fish.

Thank you for giving me your love of travel (aren’t youthankful I grew out of “are we there yet”?).



My Hero Who Is Not Afraid To Play


For playing basketball, soccer, hide and seek, badminton, croquet and so many other games with me. For flipping my socks inside out when I couldn’t stand the feel of the seams against my toes.





 Thank you for letting us swim with dolphins. For bandaging skinned elbows and knees. For carrying me to bed when I fell asleep in yours. Thank you for asking me in that slightly annoying way of yours if I wanted to go to the E.R. after I get hurt (even if I always say NO!). 




You have taught me so much over the years “Charming”. Thanks for every laugh, every shoulder cried on, every hug, every butterfly kiss, and for allowing me to fly to the moon on your shoulders.

Thank you Hero for encouraging me to chase my dreams wherever they lead but more importantly thank you for teaching me to love Him with all my heart.


 I love you so much.
