11 Qualities I Appreciate About My Dad As I Remember Him This Father’s Day

Last summer I was sitting quietly in my car early for an appointment when the Lord reminded me of my dad’s deep influence on my life. Grabbing a piece of paper and a pen in my car, I scribbled as the ideas flowed naturally from my heart and mind. Here are my reflections:

I so appreciate my dad’s:

Love of music

Love of nature


Ability to talk with anyone and learn from each person

Curiosity about all areas of life: science, arts, sports, theology

Incredible work ethic

Love and commitment to his family

Ability to be himself

Love of cooking

Continuous desire to learn, to grow, and to evolve

Patience with me. 😊

Thank you, Lord, for my dad, Richard Latta. Thank you for our dads who help become who we are meant to be. Amen.

Please share in the comments what you appreciate about your dad. I look forward to reading your comments!
