Words from an amazing father

I tend to brag on my father quite a bit...now you can see why. Look at what he shared with me today. In the midst of financial crisis and burden - he writes THIS. Here is a man that is working two jobs and busting it yet found the time to send a word of encouragement. Needless to say, I am so proud of him. I will always treasure this note and we too, will make sure to always keep our family the priority.

I feel privileged to have such a caring, funny, wise and beautiful daughter. Raising you was the best part of my life and I'm so thankful I chose to accept the prosperity we experienced with my clients allowing me to have time for serving "the most hot chocolate ever made and served at a single football game", making every game you cheered, every meet you competed in for gymnastics, volleyball & talent shows, art projects, major book reports due the next day I found out about the evening before (we got an A+ by the way!), creative napkin composition 101, snorkeling and scuba diving, limbo dancing, skiing (H2o & snow), granny shots at basketball, tramp-lo-een from Santa, your taco salad, spaghetti/ Betty Spaghetti, all of the island and mountain adventures, sandcastles and walks on the beach...I would have missed so much of that if I had decided to expand my advertising business. I made one of the wise choices in my life. As I've told you many times, you are my masterpiece...my greatest work of art. Thank you for keeping me young and making me a BeBe and a Best Bud.
I love you tons!

Thanks a lot Dad, I am a mess over here :) Tissue!
