Father's Day

Father's Day is here and I'm due for another acronym.

F - Funny: My dad is pretty funny.  There's different aspects of it though.  Sometimes his jokes will make me laugh, sometimes his mannerisms will make me laugh, and sometimes just listening to his laugh will make me laugh.  If there's ever a time when you need a little chuckle, he's the person you want to call.

A - Absolute: I remember the days when we were vacuuming a room and my dad would always ask if we went around the edges with the hose.  No one ever looks there.  But his response was, "You might as well do it right the first time, so you don't have to do it again."  I've learned the truthfulness behind that statement.  Make sure that we finish each job/task we do absolutely.  Not only will it make the rooms cleaner, but it will help out a lot in many aspects of life.  He made sure that we did an absolute job.

T - Talented: Not saying that he's an expert at everything, but my dad certainly is pretty handy in a lot of things.  Ranging from sports, to computers, to simple household fixes.  He's an all in one handyman.

H - Hard Working: Through thick and thin, my dad will continue to work with all his might.  Maybe a little discouragement will come up, but he will never let it show.  That's been an example to me to continue to press forward even when circumstances aren't ideal.  Actually, especially when circumstances aren't ideal.  That's when we need to work the hardest.

E - Enduring: A lot of trials have fell my dad's way.  Whether big or small, trials are trials.  He has found a way to endure through them all.  Not only to be endured though, but to be enjoyed.  Through the midst of it all, he has never lost his sense of humor.

R - Role Model: In all ways, my dad has been a role model for me.  I've learned that a lot more since I've been on my mission.  I will take so many things from him and use them for the rest of my life.  he has definitely been a blessing in my life.

I wish there were more letters in the word 'father' because I still have a ton more adjectives to use.  This will do for now, I suppose.  Maybe someday I will find a way to fully thank my dad for everything.  I'm not sure if there is a way to though, but I'll try.  Happy Father's Day.
