This is my Dad.
This is the gent who taught me how to throw a football & enjoy the snap a baseball makes in a glove. He taught me how to rollerblade & stick handle, to keep my hands up & face protected, & that tired simply means you have more to give.
He taught me about "panic & die" & "head on a swivel," the difference between hurt & injured, & to "question everything, even me." Most importantly, I think, he's taught me that I have a voice, an importance, & a power that is only validated by me. And that he will always love the pain in the ass he's helped build - forever. For that alone, I'm very grateful.
Thanks for the tool belt, #Dad
- & raising a person instead of a girl.
Love always & Happy Fathers Day,
