So, I want to say these nice things about my Dad today. But I’m not feeling particularly eloquent. But, I have these thoughts about the wonderful Dad I have.
Like he’s my hero. Like I hope that I can find someone as good as he is. Like how he’s always there for me, and he’s a good counselor. And his guidance has meant so much to me. And how I think he’s amazing. How I find that way that he had a stroke so young, overcame, and is now carrying on–years later–as his body falters….is nothing short of awe inspiring. How there are so many times in my life when I made choices based of what would Dad do because he made so many good choices himself. How I think that he’s a wonderful Dad (not just to myself–favorite of his children), but to all of us.
He has six kids, and we’re lucky to have him. We’re lucky to have a Dad who never stopped supporting our mom. We’re lucky to have a Dad who set a good example for us. We’re lucky to have a Dad who continues to be a fighter. We’re lucky to have OUR Dad.
We’re just so lucky–simply because he’s in our life. Dad, I love you.
