So this weekend is father's day, and (obviously) it's a time to think of and thank the great dads, uncles, grandfathers, etc. in our lives. Every year I always think about what to tell my dad on Father's Day and how to put into words how I feel about him. Anyway, this year I decided to write this instead of cramming everything together on a small card.
Thanks for being my dad. You're a great one. I wanted to take this time to tell you how much I appreciate you and what you've done for me. I know things have been hard lately but for the most part you've been great about it and I admire you. Although we may not see eye to eye occasionally, I've learned so much for you and having you as a support system has always encouraged me to be the best possible version of myself.
You and mom have given me a great life. No matter what limits we had, you and mom broke through them. I had a great childhood and a great adolescence all thanks to my parents.
I've been to different places and had great experiences all thanks to you. I love you how you're a supportive person, how you're a father figure to my best friend and how you've had my back.
I also wanted to let you know that I like watching those TV shows you always record (they're actually not that bad... and yes I'm being serious)
We've had some great times together and I appreciate the talks we have on our way home after you pick me up from school.
I appreciate you listening to me trying to sing along to the radio and for the most part being a good sport about it.
I appreciate years of you driving me literally everywhere and picking me up.
If I listed all the things I was appreciative of, we'd be here forever, but just know that I appreciate you and everything you've done for and continue to do. You're a great dad.
So although you deserve to hear this every day of the year, I'll say it today too. I love you dad and Happy Father's Day. You've always been there for me and you've done more than I can ever repay. Thanks for all the times you've carried me, laughed with me, played with me, and talked with me. You're the greatest and I wouldn't have you any other way. Love you to the moon and back popcorn
