My dad is the greatest dad ever! He is the most genuine, loving, kind person I know. For Valentines Day he gave me and my brother a build-a-bear. Mine was a love bug. It made my day. I thought it was a really cute idea and the thought was there. All my life my dad has always been there. He coached me through basketball, softball, and volleyball. I grew up playing sports and being by his side. He not only taught me sports but the important life lessons along the way. He is the one that made me dream big and told me that I could do anything if I put my mind to it. Most of our time together was spent together at sports events. Either I was playing, he was playing, or we went to a sporting event. No matter what we were always there for each other. He is always there to help you even if it's staying up late with you to help you with homework or a paper. He likes to volunteer at his church fixing things for the building and giving up his free time to help others.
Now when you first see my dad you wouldn't see a big loveable teddy bear. He looks intimidating and scary to a lot of people. He's 6'2" and a skinny guy. And when he's not smiling he has a serious look on his face but its not because he hates the world or anything that's just his serious face. Once you start talking to him you get to know that he's really a nice friendly guy. One time at high school registration my dad went with me and was waiting at a bench while i was in line. My friend was scared to talk to him but as she walked by he said hello and they started talking. After they were done she came up to me and told me how nice she thought my dad was. My dad was pleased to hear that my friends don't think he's a scary beast. I guess with this post I just wanted to tell my dad and share with all of you how much he means to me. He is the greatest guy in the world and I couldn't of asked for a better example and loveable man in my life. He is my hero and I love him so much. I know Valentines is over but it's never to late to tell someone you love them.
