‘To Dad’ – A Father’s Day Tribute
With Father’s Day coming up I would like to dedicate this post to all the hero Fathers, Father figures, and mentors out there who have touched lives whether it be in a big or small way. It may be your children, others’ children, a family member, people you may have mentored or even people you’ve helped along the way without noticing.
Thank you for all that you do.
And most of all thank you for being you.
A relationship with a Father or Father figure is one of a kind, and without it none of us would be the same. At any age a father is someone you look up to, no matter how tall you grow. We may not always articulate these thoughts, so we have decided to share some beautiful tributes below from some of Holy Cow Home! team and readers.
This is a tribute to get us to actively celebrate and spread the word of all our love for our fathers. If it is not heard or seen then how can it be received?
So show them the appreciation they deserve! Give a hug. Give a card. Take him for dinner or a day out. Celebrate the time you have together.
We present to you, ‘To Dad’.
“To Dad – They don’t make them like they used to! You made me what I am today and inspire me as to what I want to be tomorrow.”
“Remember all those times when you embarrassed me in front of my friends by speaking your mind? It’s only now, years later as an adult that I can appreciate how right you are.
I never thought I would say this, but I am so much like you and wouldn’t change it for a thing.”
“Dad, you gave me unconditional love and you are the the reason and the inspiration behind all my achievements.
I miss you so much. Xx”
“After years without a father or father figure I thought I would never find one, and then along you came. What I thought would only ever be a dream has come true.
You make my mum the happiest I’ve ever seen, you have forgiveness for me, you always offer a helping hand whenever I need it, you listen to my rants and raves without judgement, you have inspired and taught me so much already and yet there is still so much to learn, and I could continue to go on and on!
But what I am trying to say is thank you. Thank you for all that you have done and will do and most of all, thank you for becoming part of my family – we wouldn’t be where we are today without you.”
“I know Dad is proud of his two sons and their families, it is his guidance and wisdom that steered us to this. We cannot and (unfortunately do not) express how much express how much you mean to us and how grateful we are to have you as our dad.”
If you have any nice messages of your own that you would like to add to show your appreciation (it can be about anyone – go wild!) post a comment below and lets all spread the love!
