Today is my sweet dad's birthday. Last year (on my old blog), I shared my experience with my dad taking me to a Hanson concert. This year, I will share another story that perfectly describes my dad's unselfish ways.
When I was three, all I wanted for Christmas was a pink Barbie ride-in car. Apparently, so did every other three year old, and they were sold out everywhere. Dad was on a business trip in Atlanta with a co-worker and they found one! Dad was so excited...until he remembered they were in his co-worker's two-seater sports car...with no trunk. Dad insisted that they had to get it, and so they did. It only required him to take ALL the pieces out of the box, throw the box out, and ride home with the parts.
Thank you Dad for making my Christmas wishes come true. (The next year he topped himself with a trampoline assembly in negative degree weather. We will save that story.)
I love you Dad! I hope you have the best birthday EVER!!
