Well, i was going to post a happy fathers day post, but then Tami sent me this. It was so great that i decided to put this instead of my own thing. Isn´t our dad really just the greatest? I love you dad! Happy Fathers Day
Love Elder Haws
"As you probably are very well aware, today is Father's Day.
Don't you think that we have the best dad in the whole world? I really think we lucked out with Dad. He's such a funny, caring, nice guy and I don't think we could have done any better if we tried to hand pick him ourselves. Today as we were just kind of hanging out at mom's we decided to walk down to visit Grandma Marie and we (Cory, Jan, Wayne, Andy, Muck, Nick, Grandma, and I) were all just sitting there visiting and I couldn't help it thinking of what a good Dad we have. I feel like he is my friend as well as my dad and I think that he has that relationship with all of us. He's really the best.
Working at Mountain Alarm has been fun because I get to see mom and dad a lot and I get to eat lunch with them. Well Dad said to me the other day as the three of us were sitting together eating lunch "Can you imagine if you were the only child we had and it was just the three of us all the time?" It has been the three of us a lot lately and you might imagine that it could be a little awkward but it really isn't. We have the best parents in the whole world! I'm so grateful for them, as I'm sure you are too!
Can you imagine if we didn't have brothers and sisters and it really was just you or just me and no siblings? What a sad life that would be. Dad mentioned that if they only had one kid that kid would have to make friends outside of family. That's such a weird concept for me. I thought about that really hard and I don't know what I would have done becuase my friends are my brothers and sisters as well as Nick's brothers and sisters. It would be sad if we didn't have any of you guys. You guys really are my best friends, and I wouldn't want it any other way.
That's dorky, and I'm not sure why I started writing all of that but once I started typing it I felt like I shouldn't stop so I kept going and now that I have it all typed out it seems stupid to just delete it so you're getting it..."
