Today, I’m thankful for being a dad!
My son made this for me, while he was in kindergarten! He manage to keep it hidden from me until Father’s Day! When I saw it for the first time, I asked him when he made this and he told me … at school! He was so proud of making it, but not as proud as he was giving it to me as one of my gifts!
My heart was deeply moved by the words, “Best Dad Ever’! However, this was not the first time that he has share these words with me. As a matter of fact, he uses them quite frequently … mostly when he’s trying to get Dad to say yes to something he wants. HA! HA ! Which seems like a lot these days,
All kidding aside, it’s these words like this that makes my thankful that I’m a Dad. And no matter what happens, how many times I tell him no, or how many times I have to discipline him … he still things that I’m the Best Dad Ever.
Of course, there are many times when I don’t even think I live up to this title. Yep, I’m not a perfect Dad and I don’t know of any Dad that is. I’m just trying to be best Dad I can be for him. And yes, I will miss up a lot but I also have a lot chances to get it right. Still, in the end, it doesn’t really matter because my boy will say these words to me and my whole heart will melt … and for that moment, all of my challenges as a Dad are washed away!
I certainly felt like the Best Dad Ever on Father’s Day, this year! The biggest reason for that feeling was the fact that I’m a Dad. One of the things, I love being the most. And I’m so thankful that God blessed me with the opportunity to be a Dad … because I wouldn’t change it for nothing!
