To My Dad

I might be biased, but I must say that I have the best dad in the world. I'm so greatful for him. Not everyone can say that they were able to spend countless evenings in the backyard with their dad. I remember when I first told my dad I wanted to be a softball pitcher. There was no joking about it at all. Not only did he do all the research he could on the internet, but he also went to some coaching clinics, spent money on the best tools to make me the best I could be and even was my catcher so many times. I can't thank my dad enough for those memories and for all the pitches he may have taken to the shins.
Not only did he help me with my passion, but he has always been there for all of his kids. I think the only time he has ever missed anything we have been in was when he had to go out of town for work. I feel so blessed to have such an amazing dad who loves his girls as much as he does. I guess he loves that boy too, but duh... what parent doesn't absolutely adore the baby of the family, especially if the baby is the only boy?
It's almost his birthday, and I don't think anything I can get him will ever be enough for all he has done for me. I only pray that I find someone to marry that is just like him. Though my mom says that we will be looking forever cause there is only one of him.
I also love his sense of humor. A friend of mine here in Cedar City who has met my dad told me once that my dad is probably one of the funniest guys he has ever met. I totally agree, however, Mom wishes we wouldn't encourage him so much! Anyways, I just wanted to do a little bragging on the best Dad in the world. I love you, Dad!

Too true, he is the best. Although I could have done without the sappy "dad-to-daughter" song. We here at Layton have a strict No Cheesy Family Love Songs or Angel Songs Policy.
