My dad has been a big part of my roots. Today he celebrates his birthday, and I celebrate what he has given me. Caring, loving, and gives his heart to every person he comes across. He leads with his heart. In the storms in our life, he has always tried to navigate through by looking at the positive, and putting one foot in front of the other.
Family and helping others is the center of his life. That is what my dad has passed onto me.
My dad loves with his heart and soul.
We love people, we love meeting them, learning about them, and lending a hand where we can. You may call this aspect of our personalities – wearing our hearts on our sleeves. Many see this as a weakness, but I would argue it is an amazing strength. It is the foundation that has helped us build relationships, and expect nothing in return.
This is a foundation of strength and love.
My dad taught me how to live, love, fall and get back up. He also taught me that it is ok to wear your heart on your sleeve, because chances are if you do, many will love you back in the same way. What you put out there comes back full circle.
Thank-you God for my dad, that has contributed to my roots and the love in my life. Happy Birthday Dad!!
