Re: A gift to my daughter
Ahh, What a good dad!
I like this time of year, mostly because I get to see my family a little more, and I (and work) tend to slow down a little and that gives me more time to be thankful for the things that really matter, family, friends, the great outdoors, the man upstairs, etc.
You keep up the good work jhammer - you never know what one little act or memory your kids will have of you when they are older.
Mine is of my dad pulling my brother and I on a sled, so we could go to the corner store and get a tootsie roll pop, (hey we were poor) and we kept hitting him in the back with snowballs, and then pretending it wasnt us, he would look around and say hey, who threw that - we are like 4 or 5, but it stuck as one of those early memories that for some reason I can still recall plain as day.
