Dad is a very special person in our family. He is the fearless leader, the patient one, the gentle man who can cry over a kids' movie, or soothe a ruffled little girl's hurt feelings, and the strong, quiet, steady rock that holds it all together, and that everyone wants as soon as something is going wrong.
In honor of Father's Day, I decided to put together a short list of "Dad-isms" for a fun post. These are some of his favorite sayings, and make up a pretty good list of words to live by!
