I started out writing my post like this: This Father’s Day I did not get to see my dad and it was hard. But that is not how it ended up! This Father’s Day I got to see my dad! It was last minute and it was awesome. We went to one of our favourite coffee places and had meaningful conversation over super yummy beverages. We don’t live in the same city and that is hard. My dad is one of my best friends. To be frank, I am not quite sure what I would do without him. My dad is so special to me!
My dad has always been my number one fan. He has been my cheerleader when I did not even know that I needed one. My dad encouraged me to go to college and has always encouraged me to pursue my dreams. In this waiting season in life, he has been so present and steadfast. My dad has spent hours praying for me. My dad has taught me about unwavering faith in the midst of trials. My dad loves God so much – it inspires me to keep pursuing the faith that is such a treasure in my life.
My dad is fun. I can see where I get a lot of my personality from in him. My dad loves his family so much and I love my family more than anything. Again, not so sure what I would do without him or my whole family. We both love a good party. We both have a heart for community and gathering people. We both love people – he’s an extravert just like me!
My dad is by far and large one of the kindest people I know – it is an amazing legacy of generosity and sacrifice that he has gifted to his kids and others in his life.
I am so thankful for my dad.
So call your dad today! Tell him how much he means to you and what he has been in your life. Cheers beauts!
