happy fathers day to my dad!
Happy Father's Day to my dad!
Thank you for taking this little girl fishing and camping and for teaching her how to use a pocket knife and ride a motorcycle.
I can do boy things.
Thank you for saying your job was "the shits" and for making me and my friends laugh. Thank you for dancing around with a pair of tights on your head after I got my wisdom teeth pulled out.
I can do funny things.
Thank you for being the lap to curl up into and the shoulder to cry on, even at twenty.
I can be tender and forgiving.
Thank you for keeping some things just between us.
I can be trustworthy.
Thank you for the money, but not just the money. Thank you for the clever ways you gift even a twenty dollar bill; concealed in a miniature Christmas tree, tucked into the glove compartment so that you're paying for lunch even after we've left for home.
I can be creative and giving.
Thank you not only for my own experiences, but for the amazing experiences you've shared with your grandchildren. The time, the love, the patience.
I can't wait to be a grandparent.
Happy Father's Day, Dad! I am so happy to be spending the day with you!
I love you.
