It really should be renamed to Happy ‘man that disciplined you, gave you advice, made sure you had food and clothes, maybe took a fake sick day with you, took you to work, judged your friends, gave you something special’ Day! Father’s come in many forms and can be called by different names – Dad, Papa, Pops. On this day you should remember the man, or men – dad, uncle, grandpa that made a difference in your life, hopefully for the better, but remember that the way they raised you has made you who you are today. And if that is a free person – free to love, work, play than you turned out ok.
To the Fathers in my life:
Caleb – the love of my life and the daddy to my dogs, I love you.
John – the man who appreciates the woman, but didn’t want to raise the teen, thank you.
Barry – to the man who had to deal with me and Tiffany, I’m sorry.
Robert – you are an ol’ bucket of info, and you did great with your kids.
Grandpa – you tried your damnedest to fight your demons and raise my parent, congrats.
Jake – you have two amazingly beautiful and spoiled girls, watch out.
Trent and Tony – you have crazy taste in women, but make cute boys.
Eric – if your dad qualities are anything like your uncle qualities you will be fine.
