On this day you are to be celebrated, loved and thanked for your selflessness. But, please know that it is not just on this day that I think of you; love you and thank you for the father that you have been. You are the first man that I ever loved. You see my heart through my mistakes, opinions and failures. Your love for me is unconditional, undying and undeniable.
Not only today but every day, I want you to know that I see you. I see the heart that you have. You would do anything for the people that you love. Your loyalty is admirable and is an example of the love you have for the people that are dearest to your heart. You are strong. You have come face to face with circumstances that have brought you to your knees and still you have made the choice to stand up on your own two feet and carry on.
I am thankful to know you, love you and call you my own. I am thankful for your humor, your free spirit, your kindness and generosity. I am thankful for your creativity, loyalty and your strength. I am thankful for your playful nature, the love for your grandchildren and you ability to make friends wherever you go. I am thankful that God chose you to be mine.
To My Heavenly Father,
Every day I grow to know you more and more. You are my strength when I have none, my feet when I cannot walk on my own and the air that I breathe when life has stolen it from my chest. You have sacrificed beyond my understanding. Giving your own son so that I may be with you again. You are all that is good, all that is love and all that I will ever need. There are times that I may not understand your will, but I know that what you want for my life is better than anything I could imagine. You love me, care for me and forgive me when I don’t deserve any of it. I am blessed to know you, love you and be given your grace. I am thankful to be yours. Thankful to be your creation, your love and your daughter. I am thankful for your son, your spirit and your presence. I am thankful that prayer gives me a direct line to you and that your strength is sufficient for us both. I am thankful that you are in control so that I may rest in my trust for you. I am thankful to know you and to be known by you.
