Happy Father's Day

Dear Dad,
Thank you for all your love and support.
 For the days you sacrificed and went without so I could have enough.
For the times you stood up for me when I was afraid to confront my opposition.
For the nights you prayed when I was overcome with sickness and feared the worst.
For all the days you played with me when friends were far and siblings were away.
For the way you showed me to be strong and stand on my own two feet.
Your life has been an example I was always happy to follow.
Your words of wisdom have echoed in my ears as I charted my course in life.
One this special day as we celebrate the men that fathered us, I want you to know how much you are loved and appreciated.
To all fathers - Happy Father's day.
