It's Father's Day.
I have the best daddy in the world. I know, I know. EVERYONE says that. But, I really do mean it.
His love for me has never gone missing. Even when I wasn't doing the right things, or when I was struggling with making the right decisions, he still loved me and cared for me. He still showed that love. He had patience with me. And, when I needed it most, he gave me precious advice.
Every year for Girl's Camp, my dad would write me letters. One letter for every day that I would be away. In the letters, he wrote spiritual things, scriptures that he felt I should study that day, and he would bear his testimony. This last year, when I went through my life changing experience, he wrote me letters that had basically the same idea. I keep every letter received, and I treasure the fact that my father took the time to do that for me.
My dad is a holder of the priesthood. I so greatly appreciate the fact that he is a worthy holder of this great power, because I know that he is able to give me father's blessings whenever I ask. The priesthood is a wonderful blessing to me, and I am glad that I was able to see how my dad treats that power.
My father is the example I look to now when focusing on finding MY future eternal companion. He is a great leader, a wonderful man who helps when asked, and he loves all. He is a spiritual person, always worthy of the priesthood, and he always tells me the corniest jokes, which I love.
I love my daddy. I love that I will be able to call him my father from now into eternity. He will always be my daddy, and I love love love him.
Happy Father's Day, daddy. Thanks for being the best daddy ever. <3
