I’ve already bragged about what an amazing mom I have, but hold on… because I also happen to have the best father, friend, and male role model that a woman could ask for.  I have been truly blessed to have the relationship that I do with my dad.  I often wish that everyone was as fortunate as I am.  I do not, for one moment, take that for granted.  Basically, my only “daddy issues” are finding a man who could come remotely close to the kindness, character, and intelligence of Dick Smith.

That said, no gift could even come close to summing up my gratitude, but it’s worth a shot, right?  Here’s the thing about dads, they are always so busy taking care of everyone else (nope, not just mom), that they tend to skimp on themselves.  For instance, my dad likes to wear the same shoes he’s had for the last decade, because ya know, they still work.  I tried to replace them.  That went over like a lead balloon.  Just remember that men tend to be practical, so extravagant gifts aren’t necessarily key– and he does not, under any circumstance, want another tie.
