My Father turned 50 on the 13th of September which makes this blog entry late. But all the same, I thought I should share the 50 reasons why I love my dad. I tell him often that He is the best father a girl can have and I mean it with all my heart. I feel blessed having him in my life. When I consider how the Lord has blessed me, on my list I always add-"the greatest parents!" I would never trade places with any child on the face of the earth. I framed the 50 reasons I love my dad and gave them to him as part of my gift to him. They will appear the way they did, addressed to him that is. So here are the 50 reasons why I love my dad:
50 Reasons Why I love You Dad!
1. You are the best father a girl could ever have (I have said it a million times but to me it never grows old).
