happy father's day

{greatest father ever}

This guy... Oh my you were A M A Z I N G! Best Dad ever! Happy Father's Day to one of the greatest fathers of all time. You inspire me everyday to be a better person {truth}! You help me stop and think about making a good decision in bad times. I can't even tell you how blessed I was to call you my father. Your love for your family and life was beyond contagious. I know I've said it before, but you would do anything for me. When you weren't feeling well, you still cared about others and were kind. I learned so much from you. OK I slightly have to release {my guilt}... For example I had a extremely miss-fortunate situation happen yesterday that is still haunting me today. I messed up on my sons hockey game. Went to the completely wrong ice arena. The sad part is, it was his last game of the season and that his entire family was coming watch his game. He was thrilled. Everything was packed and we were onetime.  I made the mistake. I can't blame anyone, but myself. Have you ever wanted to scream so loud and start crying and then curl into a ball and shut the door {not let anyone in}? Well, that's what I wanted to do... But, I had 6 little kids in my car so I had to lead by example fast and think of a positive situation.  My dad kept coming to me... It was like he was sitting on my shoulder in the car... Saying, Just relax! It's going to be OK! Just relax, Alex! So after my mental beat up I realized that beating myself up and freaking out wouldn't get me anywhere. My dad would say, Listen... In life things are going to happen and we need to go forward and not dwell. Dwelling will not get you anywhere. The fact that I owned up to it made me realize, I'm human and it's OK to mess up. Thanks dad for all your positive guidance... Showing me how to be calm in certain situations helped me handle things positively in front of my children. Your guidance was amazing! I know I need to lead by example more... Yesterday was miss fortunate but, you helped me show all the little ones how to react in a bad situation. You have lead by example to me and my brother your entire life. Your calm and peaceful demeanor has saved me in the last few years of my life! Truth, I have never  ever heard you swear, you never ever spanked or yelled at me.  Never! You sat me down and taught me what was right and wrong. Asked me to see how the other person felt and sit on the other side of the room. So today I sat Ryan down and apologized one more time and said, it was my mistake and I will do my best next time to never let something like this happen again. He said, mom I understand. I'm not mad at you. You saved yourself and we all had a great rest of the evening. Dad, I will never forget your teachings... Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I love you so much. I do believe your with me always! Thanks for listening! I love you with all my heart!

Happy Father's Day!
