Father's Day - Sundays in My City

I'm a lucky girl! I have one of those dads who told his little girl she could do anything and who encouraged her to pursue her dreams, even if those dreams meant his little girl going to far corners of the world, and continues to do so.  I'm also lucky that he's willing to visit me in those far corners. [Note: my mom is equally as great as my dad and somehow I missed doing this same post on mother's day but I couldn't not tell you how lucky I am to have the mom that I have as well!]

My dad used to take us to the museum or some other educational-type place on a school day.  The next day he'd send us to school with a note explaining why we had missed the previous day.  The school did not approve of our absence to go to the museum.  My father didn't understand their opposition.  He did understand that there are many ways to learn and that not everything is learned in school.  He instilled that love of learning in me and I'm so grateful! 

My love of learning is just one of the many things I got from my dad and I hope he knows what a great man he is!

Are you as lucky as I am? Do you have a super fantabulously awesome dad as well?  Tell me about it.

    Yes, good fathers are precious and hold us in good stead to face the world. I am grateful my father can be counted amongst those.

  8. This is a great post! I have an equally awesome dad. He's a bit of an agrophobe, but he still comes and visits me - which means the world.
