There hasn't been a card written that can relay how I feel about my daddy. I'm confident to say that there never will be one written that will explain it either. Hallmark isn't that good.
He has taught me 95% of what I know. From computer programming to changing a flat tire (luckily I haven't had to put that knowledge to use just yet) and all the things in between.
He is always willing to help. His patience astounds me. As does his ability to allow things to roll right off of his back. He is never rude. He is a man of few words but those few are always worth listening to. He can fix almost anything (as he has proven multiple times). Being the daughter to Mr T will always be my claim to fame in our town as I could never do anything to top that. I am proud to know that he is so well respected. He has touched many lives over his 36 years of teaching. He is stern when he needs to be and he is soft when he needs to be. His inner strength astounds me.
Happy Father's Day, Daddy.

I want to thank you and Justin for opening your home to our family. We have had an amazing time and I look forward to visiting in the future. I know that Jackson doesn't have as much to offer as your neck of the woods does, but if you ever want to come visit please come and stay with us.
I have made memories that I will cherish forever! Jamie, you are a wonderful hostess. Justin, you are such a good man. Just like my Jason, Big Gene and my daddy (take that to heart... I don't compare just anyone to my daddy)
Both of you will be wonderful parents. I saw the way each of you were around Si and it makes my heart happy to know that this new baby will have two adoring parents. Don't ever forsake your family. They are the ones that will stand by you no matter what, even if it isn't to their advantage.
Remember that no relationship is perfect. Remember to never take each other for granted. True love is wanting your partner to be happy more than you care about your own happiness. If more people today realized that, the world would be a much happier place.
Cherish this pregnancy, Jamie. Write a journal and take pregnancy belly pics that you can show to your child when she/he is older. My favorite part of Janie's babybook is the part I did before she was born. After she was born I never seemed to have the time to do it. God has blessed you with this child. Motherhood is by far the hardest job I have ever had, but it is also the absolute best one I have ever had.
