Here's to you, Dad!

I have a great dad. He’s my best friend.
I love how there’s a day dedicated to showering love on the man who taught you how to ride a bike and play catch:)
But that’s not all he’s taught me. Here are the top 3 things I’ve learned from my dad:
1. The value of hard work. My dad is Mr. Problem Solver — the hardest worker. He recently retired from his job he had for over 30 years. Talk about dedication! He is loyal, dependable, and a man that gives 110%. He led by servant leadership, and empowering others.
2. Perturb to learn. That’s one of his sayings. Basically, you won’t know until you try. You’ve got to advocate for yourself.
3. What a loving marriage looks like. That may sound strange…but just hear me out. My parents have been married for 38 years. Isn’t that amazing! The way he treats and respects my mother is the most beautiful example of selfless love. I have learned through their example what a healthy, happy marriage is.
I have learned countless other lessons too — about faith, integrity, friendship, discipline, football (go Packers!), priorities, giving, and Porche Boxsters:)
So Happy Father’s Day Dad! Cheers to you!
