He’s your Dad. He taught you how to tie your shoes. He walked you to school that first, scary morning long ago. He worked long days and sometimes you were in bed long before he got home from work. Did you know he always peeked in to smile at your sleeping face trying not to wake you?
Dad’s come in all shapes and sizes. Some are funny, some try to be very, very serious. If you’re very lucky, someday you will look at your Dad and realize he has become a friend. A very good friend.
No one can teach a man how to be a Dad. It’s a self taught, ever changing process. What seemed right yesterday could change overnight. Dad’s need to be strong and firm and soft and flexible all at the same time. Sometimes Dad’s make mistakes. Sometimes Dad’s forget or just don’t understand. Be patient. He’s still learning.
If you are blessed to have a Dad in your life, remember him with something special on Father’s Day. A hug. A kiss. An “I love you, Dad”.
