inspiration monday


happy birthday to the man who
taught me the importance of laughter,
showed me how to use power tools,
reminds me to always do my best,
has a permanent spot on his broad shoulders reserved for me to cry on,
is a friend when i need a friend....and a dad when i need a dad,
put "wise" in the word "wisdom",
still tells me that he's proud of me,
and has inspired me every day of my life.....

happy birthday, dad
i love you!!! xox
