A Father's Day Letter

Dear Dad,

Since I can't be with you today and bake something like this, this letter will have to suffice.

Thank you for all you have done for me. You may have let mom take the lead sometimes but you always know when to step in.

I know I haven't been the easiest daughter to deal with but thank you for always being there. You have always been there to back me up, to support me in anyway possible and that means more than you will ever know.

Thank you for coming to all my sporting events as a kid and even the what I suspect to be horrific ballet and piano recitals. I'm so lucky to have a dad that showed up for all my achievements, big or small.

Thank you for showing me that everything doesn't have to be so serious, that life is worth having fun. Thank you for being the voice of reason when I thought "there's not enough time or I need to decide now". Thank you for putting up with all the "you just don't understands". Thank you for sharing your stories and wisdom with me over the years. I have learned so much from you.

Thank you for letting me be me, sassy,or in your words "piece of work" girl, and loving me because of it.

I love you Dad.

Ps. Thank you for being okay with my nose ring that I got in a foreign country...and well, all the other things you want to cringe at that I have done haha.

  1. Brooke - Thank you so much - for your wonderful card, fathers day call and this letter!!! Brooke I enjoy being with you always and have enjoyed watching you become a young woman!!! I have to admit that I still kick myself for not going with you for the start of your JMU career - so we all do or don't do things we wish we had.By the way I think that "Pip" at times is more appropriate then "piece of work" although I have used that alot as you noted. Anyhow, I think I should be thanking you for all the things you have done for me - that is to say I couldn't be more prouder of you. You have made me so very happy.

    One thing I would like you to do for me today even though we are a day past Father's Day and that is LAUGH - I love to hear you laugh it makes me so Happy!!!


    ps - hope to see you on the 4th if you can make it.
