Because he loves me.

One very EARLY, cold and dark morning this week, there was a surprise knock at my back door.  I thought maybe one of the seminary kids forgot something important, 
when what to my wondering eyes should appear 
but a right jolly-old-elf carrying this:
He knows me.
He loves me.
He drove 45 minutes in the cold and dark to deliver an entire days' worth of dessert.
To me!
This is where the bridge of father-daughter relationships has been crossed.
He becomes my friend.
The Prophet Joseph Smith taught that friendship is among the fundamental principles of our faith.
It is designed "to revolutionize and civilize the world."
Thanks, Dad.
You ROCK my world.
P.S. I ate two-and-a-half donuts and a heathen-sized portion of trifle before the day was done.

Oh, yummy for the tummy! You sure are a breakfast dessert gal, I can see that. I'll bet that jolly old elf enjoyed every minute of his trip to your house.

This looks exceedingly yummy.. you want to make a 3 day trip out here dad? I have a sneaking suspicion that mom had something to do with the dessert on the left.

I'm so glad when daddy comes over, glad as I can be. Clap my hands and shout for joy.....
What. a. guy!!!

Heard about that. One of your daughters likes dessert breakfast as much as you.

How sweet.

I mean, literally, how sweet.

Lucky daughter! I'm grateful for those special moments. Well done daddy-O.
