I don’t think anyone can predict what they will be like as a parent. You can hope, I guess, or think “this is the kind of parent I want to be.” But I don’t think you can really know.
Until you are one.
And I don’t think my Dad could have ever known that he would be THIS good at being a Dad.
I’m not in the mood to cry, I’ve just got too much to do today. So I’m not going to elaborate and tell you all the remarkable things about my Dad. [Though there are a LOT of things that are awesome about my Dad. Just ask me sometime. I’ll tell you until you ask me to shut up.]
Suffice it to say that I consider it one of the privileges of my life to be his daughter.
Happy Father’s Day, Daddy. I love you.
[If you wrote a post about your dad, feel free to link to it in the comments or just take another opportunity to share about your awesome father. Whatever makes you happy. 🙂]
