Dad {A Birthday Wish}

What to get someone who has everything they want already?

I was considering this as a gag gift, quite literally…but it apparently can cost up to $450 for 2 liters. Since I learned how to be cheap frugal from you, that’s a no go.

So instead, I want to thank you for a few things:

1. Teaching me, and apparently over 36,000  79,000 other individuals (as of 2013), how to get rid of a beehive.

2. Showing us your amazing vocal range.

3. Raising us to understand that “life is precious”.

4. Continuing to use your knowledge, hands, and mind to save lives.

5. Instilling in us a love for math, nature, and living off the land.

6. Fiercely loving and protecting all of us girls.

7. How to kill a deer with your bare hands, if necessary. & along with that…how to shoot a gun, bow, gut a deer, filet a fish, snag a “log” that’s really a big northern.

8. Teaching us to believe in ourselves. Whatever we want to do, we can do if we work hard for it.

9. Building canoes, kayaks, beds, bookshelves, kitchens that will fill our lives for years to come.

10. Teaching us that we can always look to the sky for the North Star and know our way home.

I’ve had to approve/delete so many comments for that beehive video.

Ha. I bet! I saw the comment you posted on YouTube about moderating. Who knew it would go viral!
