A Man Among Men

"An outstanding man, one with special qualities. A person regarded as epitomizing manhood or mankind; (especially as a term of praise) one who is an example to all others; an active, well-rounded member of society."
(taken from the Oxford English Dictionary)


Dear Daddy,

To me, you are THE man among men.
Strong, Humble, Smart, and Loving.


Faithful, Hard Working, Sweet, and Funny.


Your example has helped me to know, in my heart of hearts, these three things:

God is real and you love Him.
Marriage is fun and you
love my Mother.
I am beautiful and you love Me.


Those convictions can get me through anything life dishes out.


I love you so much, Dad.
Happy Birthday!
