Thank You to The Dad Who Was Always There For Me

Thank you for being the dad every person should have in their lives.

I know at times I was a hard kid to raise, I had a big mouth, my own opinions, and I wanted to be as independent from my parents as possible. But you helped mold me into that young woman I am today.

You helped me become the woman who stood up for what she believed in, even if it meant she would be standing alone. You taught me how important my opinions were and how everyone deserved to have a voice. You taught me that I can do and be anyone I want to be. And I am so grateful for that because I know people would kill to have a dad like you in their lives.

You have helped me chase some of my biggest dreams and one of these days you will be the reason I reach them. I couldn’t imagine where I would be today without you. And when I think back to how much of a pain in the ass I used to be… I can’t help but love you even more for never losing hope that’d I turned into the good woman you knew I’d become.

Thank you for being the man/dad I want my future husband to be like.

Thank you for showing me how a girl deserves to be treated. I love watching you do all the amazing things you do for mom, just because you feel like she needs a pick-me-up. It has helped me understand exactly how I want to be treated by a man, like a queen, just like you treat mom.

I am honored to have a man like you to look up to and be able to call my dad. Because not a lot of people get the experience to grow up with a man in their lives. Let alone a man who loves their wife as much as you do. So I hope you know how grateful I am for that.

Thank you for always being there for me.

It’s terrible to think that some kids never get to have the relationship with their dad, that I have with you. You were always the one supporting me in every phase I had, whether sports, school, jobs you have never ceased to be one of my greatest supporters.

I could never imagine my life without you in it and that’s why I want you to know how lucky I am to have a dad like you. I owe it to the kids who never had a dad like mine, to love you and thank you as much as I can.

Thank you for never giving up on me.

You have never doubted my abilities to go on and do great and powerful things even when I didn’t believe in myself. So thank you, daddy, from the bottom of my heart, for being the person who has always given me the strength to never give up and always have faith in myself.

If it weren’t for you and all the encouragement you have ever given me, I wouldn’t be in the awesome place I am now.

Thank you for disciplining me

When I was younger I know I held some things against you only because I felt I was being treated too harshly. Now I look back at those moments and think to myself how much they really change my outlook on things.

They helped me change into a better person, no matter how much I thought they were unnecessary. They made me grow into a woman who is strong, intelligent and thinks out her decisions before she makes them.

Thank you for always loving me and showing it.

There has never been a moment in my life where I thought you didn’t love me. You have always shown it and of course, said it. As a person who has had such a loving, impactful, and involved dad it is my obligation to appreciate you as much as I can.

You can be taken from my life at any moment, and I don’t want you to ever question how much I care and love you because you have never done that to me.

I love you, daddy, to the moon and back and I don’t know what life would have been like without you. So, thank you, for being the dad everyone deserves to have and being the dad I couldn’t be more blessed to love.

I Love You Tons.
