I know many of us are not huge fans of cell phones for many reasons, but when you live six hours away they can make all the difference. I have missed a lot of things about home during this transition, but one of the biggest things I have missed is my Dad's constant input. I like to pretend that I don't listen to him, but some how he always seems to be right (my mom too), but today I was extra thankful that he was a phone call away. Whether it is sports or just life in general he always does his best to help me out. People say as I get older I look more and more like him and I can tell I am starting to act more and more like him too. Some how I just didn't get his science gene! LOL
Ever since I have come back from Christmas Break I have been home once where I saw my Dad, but other then that I have not got to spend a whole lot of time with him. This makes things hard because there are so many people you want to squeeze into your life, but sometimes it is harder than ever. That is what I look forward most to this summer. I am ready to be able to devote some real time to those I love, including my family and Dad!
After I called to check up on them and fill them in on my life I couldn't help but be extremely thankful. My family has been so great during this whole process, I know I have told you that before, but some days it is easier to see that than others. My Dad has helped me on countless occasions and today was just another day of getting this advice. He says I call him only when I need something, but that is because he is one of the only people I really ever need help from. I will hear anyone out, but taking their advice and putting it to use is something I typically only do when it is my Dad's. I really do feel for those who for one reason are another do not have a Dad. I can't even imagine.
So no, it's not his birthday or fathers day, I just want to take the time to thank God for such a great Dad!
In our busy life it is hard to find time to tell our loved ones how much we appreciate them, but when we have the time we should with out a doubt use it wisely. Thank you Dad for teaching me about sports, giving good life advice, helping me reach my dreams, working so hard so that Mills and I can have the best life possible, for giving me your gray blanket, for teaching me how to have style, showing me that having a servants heart is one of the best hearts, recording all my favorite shows, teaching me how to tie a bowtie, cooking all the best things, and for all around loving us all more than most things. I cannot imagine learning from anyone else. You are so special to me and I look forward to much more of your input as life goes on. I hope you have a great week and I hope you remember how much I love you!
Be thankful for those who love you like this. They deserve all of the thanks!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
