Daddy, I Love You
From a near 30 year old who still says Daddy every time she speaks to her old man (and always will), I wish all the incredible fathers out there an amazing end to this special day.
The older I grow, the more and more I realize just how much love and care was placed into creating a nurturing, stimulating, and protected world for me.
I’m the luckiest little girl in the world.
Despite the stiff competition, I can confidently say I have the world’s best dad (and yet he still doesn’t have the mug to prove it).
Want in on some tear-jerking reads to celebrate the occasion? These letters from dad plastered a smile on my face:
“Be brave and know that the bravest thing you can do is be willing to not fit in. Never take pleasure in someone else failing. Dare to fail yourself. Be the one who doesn’t care as much about clothes as the person wearing them. Be kind, be compassionate and be humble. Once I saw you sit down next to a kid who was eating lunch all alone—always be that person. Once I saw you go up to a little girl who was crying on the playground and ask her what was wrong—always be that person. The girl who said, “I don’t associate with bullies”? That was you. You’ve got a giant heart and a world-class-brain-in-training and Roxy, you’ve got character.”
