Happy Father's Day to all of the amazing dads out there! Y'all are great, but I'm about to explain why mine is the best (I might be a little biased though).
If I'm being completely honest, this is totally a "spur of the moment" post. I originally had something completely different planned, but as I watched my dad today, I realized that I need to tell people how totally amazing he is! Alright, I realize that everyone's father is "the best" and it's true. Everyone's dad is the best dad for them. So, I'm going to explain why my dad is the best to me.
The first reason my dad is the best is because he is extremely patient. When I was a little girl, he wouldn't hesitate to sit on the floor and play dolls with me (even though he could have been doing something much more productive or fun). When I was 10 and 11 he was patient with me during my awkward stage, which is really saying something! Recently, he's been patient with me when I have questions about Tempie Jane or customer service. However, he is the most patient with me when I need life advice. His wisdom is astounding and I would be lost without it and him!
Another reason my dad is amazing is because of how talented he is. If you know my dad, you know he can totally rock an organ solo! Seriously, the man has some skills. While, playing the organ is one of his favorite things to do, he has many other hidden talents. True, he is musically and artistically gifted, but he has some secret skills that only I get to see. For example, I'm convinced he's a professional juggler. He's a stay at home dad so he has to juggle kids activities, laundry, cleaning, and helping out with homeschool and it's TOTALLY AWESOME! (Not discrediting my mom because she works really hard too, but its Father's Day)
The final reason he is the bet dad ever is because of how much he inspires me. One of my favorite things to do with my dad is to watch old shows and movies. He introduced me to the suspense and thrill of Alfred Hitchcock films, and the bitter sweetness of James Stewart in It's a Wonderful Life. I now have a running list of about 30 movies (and counting) we plan to watch. He has a huge respect for the past and loves to learn about the history of movies, towns, and especially people. He's always up for a quick drive around our small town, where he will point out various houses and tell me about the people who lived there. All of these things have inspired me to be more like him.
So in conclusion, my dad is a patient, wise, history loving, old movie watching, organ music playing, life juggling, supportive dad... and THAT is why I think he is the absolute best!
