I love my dad. I love him for so many reasons. He's kind, patient, and compassionate. He's smart, knows a lot about a lot of things, but never makes you feel dumb. He explains things well. He loves reading and nature. He is a hard worker. He is both gentle and strong. He loves his grandchildren, plays with them and reads them the "funnies" every week.
He and I talk on the phone every evening just to check on each other and fill each other in on the details of our days. Tonight he wanted to tell me that he has finally decided which John Denver song is his favorite. After years of being a fan, he decided that "Wild Montana Skies" is the winner. He proceeded to tell me all about the song, read some of the lyrics, and even sang a line or two.
I love my dad for so many reasons, but especially because he sings me John Denver songs at 10:30 at night. I'm so glad to end my day talking to him.
