Happy Fathers’ Day

My dad is a great guy. He doesn’t really know it though. He’s worked hard all his life, and now that I’m an adult, I can appreciate that and admire it. A lot of the good things about me are because of him. He taught me, “If you’re gonna do something, do it right.” And, “A place for everything and everything in its place.” He also taught me that I could do anything I wanted if I was willing to work hard enough for it. Some dads push their own dreams for their children and the kids end up resenting it. My dad never did that. He’s always supported my dreams, even when they seem out of reach. My dad has always allowed me to carry my own opinions even when they contradict his. So happy fathers’ day, Dad. I love you. Thanks for being a truly great guy!
