I never could have imagined how great a dad you would be. I knew you would be good and teach valuable lessons, but I didn’t know the extent of it.
You are not just a good dad, you are the best there is. You instill values in our son that will last him a lifetime. The example you show of what it looks like to work hard, never give up, be the best ‘you’ there is, never settle for mediocre, and to always strive to go further no matter the situation is amazing.
The lessons you’ve taught of how to ride a bike, kick a soccer ball, run, have nice handwriting, clean up after yourself, put the lid down, use manners, be respectful and appreciative, and take nothing for granted is refreshing.
The example of how to be silly, to laugh at yourself, to have fun, to play are so important.
But, the most valuable lesson you are teaching our son is to love the Lord. To put God first in every situation. To go to Him first. To seek His will in your life. To trust Him in all areas. To pray. To be vulnerable. To love others. To know Jesus. These lessons are priceless and lessons that I am so thankful our son is learning from you.
I could never have described the perfect dad in a way that would encompass all the qualities you possess. I had no idea just how amazing you would be. The unconditional love you show, the time you give even after working long hours. The hours spent playing and laughing and making him laugh. Thank you just doesn’t seem like enough.
But, thank you for the seeds you have planted and continue to plant in our son’s life. Thank you for being such a wonderful example of a godly daddy. Thank you for leading our son to the cross so he can know the love of our Heavenly Father. Thank you for loving me fiercely so he knows how to treat his wife one day. Thank you for all of this and so much more.
So today is your day but I hope you know that we value you, respect you, love you, and honor you every day. Not just once a year but daily. Thank you for being you! Our boy is one blessed little boy to have you as his daddy. And I’m so thankful I get to witness it day in and day out!
We love you and happy Father’s Day!2
