I am so thankful you decided to stay in my life and be a father I can be proud of. There are a lot of people who wish they had what I had as a father, and I honestly can’t say I blame them.
As a child, you have up music and going to bars because I would sleep in the floor of the kitchen waiting on you to get home. I would hide your leather jacket thinking I’d you couldn’t find it you wouldn’t go to that gig. But thankfully you gave it up.
I never asked you to change your dreams and passions to put me first but you did it anyway. You didn’t drive the nicest vehicles because you were busy providing. You and mom both.
I read these articles of people who went without the love of a mom and a father and I couldn’t imagine the hurt and pain that that could bring on to a person. Because the thought that someone chose you weren’t enough before some of you even came out of the womb is heartbreaking to say the least.
Dad, mom.. I love you. Thank you for your sacrifices. Thank you for being there even at the times I didn’t want you to be. Thank you for not giving up on me even when I couldn’t love myself. I wish everyone could experience parents like the ones I was blessed with.
