For you my heart will forever be thankful...

"Watch it now."

"Because I said so."

"Get off the phone...I'm on call." (That was in the old days kids...long before call waiting.)

"Be careful where you step." (that could be advice given on life or when we were in the barn feeding cows...)

"Pull my finger." (mom's gonna love that I added that one..)

"Maria Hunt Mosby!!!" (yes my middle name is Hunt...)

"I love you."

Those were a few of the many famous quotes spoken by my Dad growing up. I still hear the last one everyday, and for that I am thankful...

It's very hard to put into words the Love that I have for my Dad, but I'll try...

Strong- I couldn't begin to tell you the strength he possesses within...he holds everything together.

Caring- I have never met a more caring soul...

Soft hearted- He may look mean, but trust me if you cry he will too...

He loves my Mom with all his heart.

He will swim to the end of the ocean and back for his girls and he loves his grandchildren like no other.

Dad, Thank you for all you are, thank you for loving me and Melissa everyday always...no matter what we went through you stood beside us hand in hand and said "we'll get through this."

And we did...

Thank you for teaching us to Love God with all our heart and to stand for those that had no one else to stand with them...

Your love and example in life has seen us through so much and for you our hearts will forever be thankful...Happy Fathers Day! I love you!!

Now I started my day crying! That about sums him up. I think your dad is awesome too! I am glad my boys can look up to him.

Perfect description of your father. I thank God every day for him and for both our girls. God surely knew what He was doing when He put Mike and me together!
