Some of us are not fathers. Some of us cannot be fathers, for many reasons.
Some of us are fathers that don't appreciate being fathers. Sadly, I was in that last camp for a long time. I didn't realize what I had around me and the blessing of being a dad to 3 incredible young people. Today, 25 years later, I am beyond honored to have children, and I am so grateful that my children knew that I loved them despite not always being available to them. I was also blessed to add 3 more children in the last 4 years.
I love you Zachary, Kaiya and Tiana. I love you Cadence, Leland, and Alexander. I am your father. I wish I was your Father, but I'll take the small f, for what that's worth. Thank you for being my amazing children. You honor me with your love and works.
Truly. Thank you.
