15 Thank-Yous To My Biggest Support

Thank you, Dad, for all that you do.

15 Thank-Yous To My Biggest Support
Katelyn Dellinger

Hey Dad, you're kind of super awesome and you deserve the world. While I can't exactly give you that at the moment, I can take the time to thank you for just a few of the amazing things you've done for me over the last 20 years.

1. Working your butt off day-in and day-out

Everything I am and everything I have been able to do is all thanks to your hard work. Thank you for working so hard and doing all that you can to support our family.

2. Dealing with my dramatics

I get it- I'm not super easy to deal with. And yes there have been a few times I needed put in my place but most of the time you just let me live my dramatic life. Plus, just looking at this picture everyone can tell where i get my dramatics from.

3. Spoiling the crap out of me 

I'm not some spoiled brat but at the same time I am some spoiled brat. Thank you for giving me everything I could have ever needed and wanted.

4. But also keeping me humble

I still had to get a job and work and buy things myself. Thank you for teaching me the value of money (something a lot of my friends don't know) and teaching me that there are a lot of people out there who aren't as fortunate as we are.

5. Being my #1 fan

You have a t-shirt that says "Cheer Dad"... I think this one is self-explanatory

6. Being my coach on and off the field

Remember when you coached my softball team? Remember when you would walk over to the backstop and coach me even you technically weren't supposed to? Well as annoyed as i may have seemed then, thank you for always being there and calming me down after those really crappy games.

7. Supporting (almost) all of my decisions 

You wanna go to a $70,000 school? Get your grades up and get in, we'll make it work. Thanks, Dad :)

8.  Listening to me complain about nursing school

I know that half the time you have no idea what I'm talking about but you listen and let me cry anyway.

9. Hugging me so hard you squeeze the tears out 

You know exactly what I'm talking about. Nothing can make me cry quicker than a long, tight hug from my biggest support system.

10. Taking silly selfies like the one below

Clearly my mom is not amused

11. Teaching me important lessons/survival skill in life 

Whether I actually listen or not... Thank you for taking me to vote for the first time, making me shovel snow, defrost my car, go for an oil change, and try to explain taxes to me. There is so much more that I am so thankful to learn from you.

12. Passing along at least some musical talent

Of course we'll never be at great as you and Mom, but thank you for giving me your love of music and always being willing to jam out to musicals with me.

13. Teaching me to be strong when times were tough 

And we've had some TOUGH times

14. Staying on me to stay in shape

Yeah my career kind of depends on it and I know I roll my eyes out of my head when you mention it but thank you for pushing me anyway.

15. Always knowing how to make me smile 

Whether we're making fun of Mom or just acting silly in general you always know what to do.

And one for good luck... always believing in me

You've always believed I am strong enough to do whatever I wanted to do and that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to. Thank you for letting me fly but always being there in case I fall and thank you for encouraging me to be my best possible self.

I promise I will make you proud.

As any other person on this planet, it sometimes can be hard to find the good in things. However, as I have always tried my hardest to find happiness in any and every moment and just generally always try to find the best in every situation, I have realized that your own happiness is much more important than people often think. Finding the good in any situation can help you to find happiness in some of the simplest and unexpected places.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media. I hope the author of this was kidding or using digital sarcasm, but I am still repulsed and shocked by the lack of appreciation throughout this article. I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
