A huge Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there. To the men who keep little pieces of candy in their pockets to surprise their kids with. Who find the energy to give piggyback rides and toss kids in the air after a long day at work. To the men who work extra hours to afford dance lessons or t-ball equipment. The dads who who let you borrow the car a mere hour after getting your license and who stay up late just to make sure you came home safe. Today is your day!
I have had the extreme privilege of having the best dad that the good Lord ever made. My dad is a true hero, a Vietnam vet and an ex Green Beret who was awarded the purple heart. However, he is my hero because no matter how many times I've screwed up in life, he always made sure that I knew I was loved and that he was proud of me. 28 years later, I am still his little girl and he makes sure that I know it.
My dad's health has been declining over the last few years and I don't know how many more Father's Days I'll get to spend with him. So, I'm taking the opportunity today to tell the world how much I love my daddy. I don't know what I did to deserve him as my father but I have thanked God for him everyday for the last 28 years.
I Love You, Dad!
