I’ve been flipping through a ton of old pictures and in all the pics of me as a little kid I’ve got this huge smile on my face. It’s obvious to me that I was overly loved, and nurtured, and cherished. My parents always treated me as a little blessing and thought that everything I did or was doing was amazing (even if they didn’t understand what I was doing). I’m incredibly grateful, and thankful, to have been raised like that.
If any of you know my dad, you know that he’s always cracking jokes, looking for laughs, and making sure everyone around him is focused on the positive side of any story.
Thanks, Dad, for taking such incredibly good care of me and making sure I always had a smile on my face. I do the same thing for the loved ones around me - I do my best to make sure everyone’s happy and is smiling. It’s an incredible gift you’ve given me and I hope to pass it down to the next generation of Thedes :)
Now, picture time!
