“To say I am blessed with the BEST dad is an understatement. He is always loving unconditionally and showing over and over how a true man should be. Whether it is picking a wild bouquet of flowers while he has spent some time in the woods, or building and putting up a huge wind chime just because my mom saw one and said she loved it, he is always going above and beyond even when least expected.
My dad carved out a huge heart from the 5-inch thick ice for my mom to surprise her with it. They are so sweet.
This was no special occasion. It had been cold the past couple of days so my sister, dad, and I went to see the ice on the pond.
It was a cold day in a small town in Kentucky that provided an opportunity to go above and beyond to do something special to make my mom smile, even if that meant risking the ice cracking and being in the freezing cold water. That’s just the kind of love they have.
He carved the heart ice sculpture with his chainsaw.
Then he trimmed it up to make sure it was just right.
A love like theirs is what most people only dream of and I’m so lucky to have parents who show me 100 percent what relationship goals should be.”
