For all those times I forget, dad…
To say I love you.
To give you birthday gifts ON YOUR BIRTHDAY.
To give you Father’s Day gifts ON FATHER’S DAY.
To listen to what you told me when I know you’re usually right.
To keep my mouth shut when I talk too much.
For all those times I forget to stay calm with my own kiddos when they drive me bananas.
Today – I remember.
I remember the times you’ve sacrificed so much for me. I remember the tough conversations you’ve walked me through. I remember when you took the road less traveled because it was the right thing to do.
I remember and give thanks that I still have you here to say these words. I remember and count it all joy that I still have you as my Pastor.
And I know this one thing – I am incredibly blessed to have you as my dad. God knew you were the perfect one for me. And that I’m exactly like you, in more ways than I care to admit.
Thank you, dad. I love you!
