thank you, dad

dear dad,
thank you for teaching me the value of hardwork.
I may not be the smartest, but I can work as hard as anyone.

thank you for teaching me the names of the tools in your tool box.
I can fetch just about any tool for mark without asking what it looks like.

thank you for teaching me how to read a ruler (over and over).
measuring is a lot easier.

thank you for teaching me to look you in the eye when talking to you.
people appreciate the attention.

thank you for getting upset when we ruined something of value.
I value and respect my things.

thank you for working hard to allow mom to stay home with us full time.
her example made me a better wife and mother.

thank you for loving me.
I love you back!!
