52 Weeks of Gratitude – Week 2

Every time I come back to do my weekly gratitude challenge is an opportunity to evaluate the week and delve into some optimism for next week. Today is not only week 2 of gratitude, it is also Fathers day.

I am thankful for my father and the upbringing he and my mother provided me. My dad has always been there for me and supported me in the things I want to do.

When I think about my dad I think about watching football with him from the day I was born, being woken up at 4am to go fishing out on the lake every Summer, traveling for the family business with him, and always having projects to work on. Now as an adult I think of how hard he worked to run a business, spending countless hours doing whatever needed to be done at all times of day and night to make it. He never complains about work, whatever that work might be.

So my gratitude starts this week off for my Father, who is the best dad a girl could have.
