What a difficult decision we had to make tonight. All of the entries for the Father’s Day Contest were genuine displays of love for their dads. We had tears in our eyes for many of the entries and wish we could award each of these dads with the prize. Unfortunately, we only have one prize to offer for this contest. The winner is really every dad out there…but the winner of this contest is the response the received from Allison M. Here is her answer to “Tell Us What You Love About Your Dad!”
What I love about my step-dad: that he stepped into the role of step dad after being a childless bachelor of 30+ odd years with such ease and comfort. I love that he worries about us ‘kids’ daily, despite the fact we are grown adults now, that we have a standing date every summer for a bike ride and dinner out. That he refuses to let me pay for lunch ever. That when he found out he was going to be a grandpa he started planning all the fun he could have with his grandson. I love the strength and determination he showed after losing his foot in a work accident 2 years ago – he has inspired me to never give up, to always look to the positive, and to cherish the loved ones around me. I love that he makes my mom happy and that he loves us as his own.
Thank you Allison M. for entering your dad in this contest. Please email me for instructions on how to claim your prize.
