I have tried all morning to write about my dad. I’ve written about his soft yet strong voice, the love he has for my Mom, his hard work and devotion to what he believes in and his stories of a life lived to the fullest. But they all seem trite. I can’t capture the spirit of the Man I am blessed to call Dad with words on a page. He is larger than that; larger than I can ever hope to write about.
So Dad on this weekend when we celebrate fathers I just want to say thank you for choosing me to be your daughter. Because of your example on how to love a woman, how to raise a family and how to work hard I was given a template on what to expect out of life and relationship. Thank you for showing me what being loved looks like, what a hard day’s work feels like and what a life lived full will produce.
Happy Fathers Day Dad. I love you.
