My Dad has always managed to keep me sane. He is patient, charismatic, optimistic; and above all, he listens. He listens to my dreams, insecurities, goals, and stresses. He listens because he genuinely wants to know. Waking to up to a rather difficult morning in the Muhlbier household; all was well and better, once I talked to my Dad.
He just listened as I poured my heart out - he listened, then responded lovingly and accordingly. I owe him so much, for he is my perfect example. If I have kids someday, I can only hope to be half the parent he is.
