This is my father and mother in 1972. This is before kids and way before grandkids. I love my mother’s dress and my father’s swanky tie. Mostly I love that my Mom smiles she knows something she’s not telling and my Dad smiles like he’s won the lottery.
I can write a long list of things I love about my dad. Hard working and faithful and generous and kind. Willing and friendly and calm and steadfast.
But this Father’s Day it’s that smile that I love the best. And the fact that my mama is frequently what makes him smile. My Dad makes us believe that he thinks he’s the luckiest man alive because he has us. And is there anything more a Dad can do? Really we won.
Thanks for loving us all well Dad. Happy Father’s Day.
