I was just thinking of you today (for obvious reasons) — and I realized I don’t appreciate and thank you enough. I wanted to say a few things I don’t often find the occasion to say.
Thanks for being the most amazing Dad I could have asked for.
& loving unconditionally
& bearing with all my car troubles and questions
& demonstrating how a man loves his wife (every day)
& being an athlete father who adores his 3 girly girls
& always listening to me
& encouraging all my various ambitions (there have been too many! — um, remember that time I wanted to spend $50,000/year on my college education?).
& tucking me in every night with a kiss
& teaching me to love God and my Bible and live out my faith
For being someone I want to be my FRIEND and FATHER for forever.
I LOVE YOU!
Happy Father’s Day!
(sad not to be there to celebrate with you today!).
