In a time when fathers are totally absent, gone most of the time, or physically present but mentally distracted, you are there for me—looking at me, listening to meunderstanding me, talking with me. You make time for meeven when it’s inconvenient for you. You make me feel important to you.
I learn from you when you teach me, when I watch you do things, and when I observe you just being you—a terrific father.
Every affectionate smile you give me, every pat on the back, every hug shows me you love me, that you’re proud of me.
These are things I’ll remember to do for my own kids. You’re a great role model, Dad. I want to be just like you.
