About Me

I am a Dad to two beautiful girls and a husband to a very gorgeous wife. I am very proud of my family and the way they give me so much support. I guess I do not need to win the lottery, I have already won.

Well my older daughter has turned 20 today and It seems just like yesterday she was born. I am a very proud Dad that she still wanted me to take her out to eat for her birthday. I have been trying to figure it out when I started doing that. It was a very long time ago that I started taking both my girls out for there birthday.

One of the memories I had was with Elizabeth and again I do not remember her age but she was determined to go to Shoney's for her birthday dinner and I do remember that she ordered spaghetti and the reason she liked Shoney's was because of the mascot. It was a teddy bear and she liked it.

Another memory I have was with Katie and again I do not know what age she was but we went to Captain D's and it is a seafood place. I do remember telling her that when she gets home she will have to wash her hands and face before she got near her Mom. There Mom is allergic to seafood so she was very understandable about that.

One of the funnier memories was when I have taken one of the girls to Captain D's for there birthday dinner and we got home. There Mom asked them what they had for dinner. They answered that they had fish and dog. We were wondering what they meant by dog and it took a while to figure it out. They could not remember hush puppies so they just said dog.

It has been an honor taking my girls out for there birthday all these years and I am a proud Dad that they still want too. I know one day it will stop and that will be a sad day but I will understand that they grew up and have there own lives now.

I want to encourage you and if your kids are still at home start taking them out for there birthdays. It is a great time for you to just sit and talk and laugh and get to know them.

Thanks Girls Dad loves you....

Well the time has finally come and right now I am not sure what to think about it. This coming Monday August 11th my youngest daughter moves into her dorm room and is off to college. It feels like it was just yesterday they were born. My oldest is starting her junior year and I guess the one thing I am happy for is that they are going to the same school and they are not that far away from us.

I am really proud of my girls and happy that they are growing up. They both will live in a dorm so it will just be me and my wife. It is a day you look forward too but at the same time, your kids are leaving and it is still hard.

I heard all the things that they never really leave and they will be back. I know this but you still have to let them grow and learn things on their own. I have a great relationship with my girls and to some people that seems weird but we do get along very well and I will miss them.

To my daughters, I love you and I am so very proud of you for being the people that you are. You are both very different from one another and that is awesome too. You made Mom and I very proud and we are very happy how you have grown up and become the woman that you are.

Well here is my gripe for the day. 
I was always brought up to say Sir or Ma'am to whom ever I am talking too. So I looked up the word Sir in the dictionary and it defines sir as a respectful or formal term of address used to a man: I also looked up Ma'am and it says  is used as a title of respect, especially when addressing a lady. Now with that being said maybe we should know that when someone calls you Ma'am or Sir it is out of respect and not an insult.

I have had people tell me when I say Sir that Sir is my dad and that is not me. I will still call you Sir. My daughters have been raised up to say Sir or Ma'am and it is out of respect.

So the next time someone calls you Sir or Ma'am, remember that they are showing the respect you deserve and they are not saying you are old or as an insult. Take the respect you might not get it all the time.

   This morning I went out running and it was probably the nicest morning for a run in July here in Tennessee. I ran for about 3 miles and then went inside the gym to stretch and cool down. As I was leaving I seen the  sun coming up over the mountain. I had to just stop and look at it through the window. It was awesome as you just watch it and see it slowly coming up. At first you just see the top of the sun peeking through the trees and a few minutes later you see half of it. I sometimes look at it and realize that God has given me another day to serve Him. I see the sun coming up and wonder that there are many days that we take this for granted. Everyday the sun will rise and we have another opportunity to live our lives.

   I think we should all just take the time to get up and watch the sun just rise into our lives. It is a great inspiration to just watch another day start and be thankful that we are a part of that day. The sun rises to give us another chance at life to either do it right or do it wrong. Let's take every sun rise and look to do it right. This is not what I seen this morning but I wanted you to have a sunrise.

Let's enjoy our day.
