We have lots of days to celebrate things. Birthdays, holidays and one of them is Father’s Day. A day dedicated to the first man in our life who takes care of us and guides us; dad. I have been blessed with a very special dad. Now 86 years old, he has been the foundation in my life for care and concern. He is the one man who has loved me unconditionally, supported my decisions good or bad, but who has always let me know his opinion. There are many times we did not see eye to eye, but I grew up knowing that no matter what happened, what I may have done, my dad was always there for me. My dad is an incredible man and I love him so very much. Although I don’t get to see him as much as I want to, my daily conversations with him always put a smile on my face. It makes me sad to think there aren’t many dads like my dad, I find hope in the care and concern I see my son-in-law Michael have for my new baby grand daughter. I am watching the love of a father for his daughter evolve in front of my eyes knowing that he strives to be the type of dad my dad has been to me. For that I am very grateful and optimistic, and although my girls did not grow up like I did, Baby ‘K’ will have the unconditional love and support of her dad.
Happy Father’s Day!
