15) Why is Dad the best Dad in the world?
Arianna- “He really cares about me, and he sacrifices everything. For example, he really wanted to be the person that baptized me when I turned 8 years old, so he started going to church regularly, just for me. It made me feel really loved. He’s really kind and cool and funny.”
Asa- “He spends a lot of time with us. Sometimes he’ll even take a day off just to be with us and cuddle us. He makes me laugh and he always comforts us when we’re sad.”
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY, DADDY!!!
