Ballerina

My dad surprised several of us this year with handcrafted gifts.


Carved by hand.  Crafted by love.


Each piece he created has a story behind it.

For one of my brothers and I, it was an ode to some building projects we had done with my dad...and the resultant tool carnage that resulted, mine a measuring tape, brother's a t-square.

And for my other brother, a plaque reminding everyone that he has his wife's permission to be called the captain of his boat.

There's just something about a gift that comes from the heart and hands.  And marks a history.


Thank you, Daddy.
