To my Dad

17 Jun

Dear Dad–

Now that I am older and have a family of my own I would like to say thank you. Thank you for showing me your exitement when you were proud, and your dissapointment when you knew I could do better. I didn’t know then what I know now – and I realize how hard it is to raise a family.

I would also like to say thank you for all your hard work and dedication to my mother. It was because of your work-ethic, paired with moms savvy accounting that she was able to stay home with us and raise us. I know what a loving marriage looks like because of how you treat my mom.

All the hours spent in the hot sun ‘busting hump’ – learning that nothing in life is handed to you – I thank you for. I have a good work ethic because of you. As much as I always wanted to sleep in on Saturdays I wouldn’t trade my lessons learned for a few more hours of sleep.

There are many things I want to thank you for but am now at a loss for words. So I will simply end with thank you for all you have taught me, I hope to teach my children everything you’ve taught me.

I love you – Happy Fathers Day
