My father gets first prize when it comes to being a Dad. He is hands-down the most incredible man I have ever met and he is my Dad!
Here are some things I want my Dad to know:
1 Thank you for showing me the type of man I want as a husband and a father to my children
Yes I have made a good few mistakes in my journey to find the one. I have now found him and I am pleased to say that he measures up. The things I love about you the most are the things I looked for in a husband. It is through you that I could choose Mr Right.
2 Always Loving me and supporting me
I know the journey has not been easy with me and I am sorry for that. Me being an alcoholic and addict can’t have been easy for you. Thank you for believing in me, that I can recover. Thank for paying for my treatment and joining in therapy groups. I know it is not easy for any man to sit in a therapy session!
3 You have the best sense of humour
In my darkest hours you have managed to look at the light side and make me laugh at life. I remember 2 days after the birth of my 1st baby via elective c-section laughing and not being able to stop. I thought I would have to go back to the hospital to get stitched again!
4 You have the gentlest and kindest spirit
I find it amusing that when friends of mine first meet you they are often intimidated and scared of you. I still can’t figure out why that is.
5 You are the voice of reason and calm and always have been
Growing up in a home with 4 women and 1 man you were always the voice of reason when we all got worked up into a frothy. You somehow always managed to calm us down, often using your wicked sense of humour.
I am so sorry that this will be your first Father’s Day without your dad. It will be a very sad day this year for us all.
Know that your daughters love you very much.
