Dad is Rad

Today is a special day set aside to honor dads and all that they are to us, and this year I am especially excited to give this amazing man some extra loving.

My dad.
Wow, what a ride he has had recently.
I have watched him go through his hardest trial these past couple of months, and my respect for him has grown as I've seen him stand strong while the enemy tried to tear him apart.
Through his pain, I watched him circle his arms around his family and draw them closer.

People can think and say all sorts of things about my dad, but we, his family, know the truth about him.
The truth is that he is kind. He has an enormous, generous heart.
He loves his family, and desires only what is best for them. He loves to spend time with us all, and makes each one of us know how much we are loved every day.
He is patient. He loves the unloved. 
He is the best, imperfect... but so are we all.
I am incredibly blessed to call him my pops.

Love you dad! Thanks for keeping the smile on our faces every day. 
Thanks for staying you, even when there were people saying you needed to change. 
Cause that's the way I like you. :)

Every year (well, almost every year), we make a Father's Day Video. This year, Zach was in charge and he decided to do a "Kid Snippet". 
It was challenging, and completely unprofessional... but totally fun. :)
Happy Father's Day to all you fathers out there!
