5k a Day Month of Thankfulness: Day 20. During today's run, I thought about how grateful I am for my dad! My dad is one of the smartest people I have ever met. I have never seen a problem set in front of him that he couldn't solve. Instead, he just rolls up his sleeves, and tries out different solutions until something sticks. He is a true renaissance man who can build a house, take your car apart and put it back together, fix your electrical or plumbing issues, and just about anything in between. He is smart and determined, but he doesn't take things too seriously. If I have received anything from him, it is definitely his sense of humor. He has the best laugh in the world--I would know where he is in a crowded room just based on his laugh. If there were more people like him, the world would be a more competent, capable, and effective place. I love you dad, and I'm very grateful to have you in my life!
