It’s hard for me to put into words how I feel about my dad.
He is kind, wise, generous, honest, funny, hard-working and compassionate. He was a provider, a supporter, a caretaker, and my biggest fan. He always told me, “Go for it!” and made me believe in myself.
How do I adequately say “thank you” to the man who who helped me become who I am? I am fortunate to have had the parents I did. I hope my kids feel the same about me.
I tried my best to show how much I love, admire, and respect him long before I started blogging, when I submitted an essay, “Priceless Treasures” (starts on page 53) for the anthology, “My Dad is My Hero.” I was honored it was included, and I share it now in honor of Father’s Day, and this man who really is my hero.
Happy Father’s Day. I love you, Dad.
