There have been times that I’ve been disappointed in my Dad. Dad’s are supposed to be the heroes in the family. The ones who keep everything together. Dads just seem to have super powers. I know for a fact that my father’s grandchildren definitely see him as a superhero.

I’ve sometimes struggled with the fact that my Dad is human. That at some given time he was going to do something that I did not agree with. Although I’ve had difficulty with my father, I’ve always loved him.  Loving him might have been hard, but if I had to write him a letter there would be a few things I’d say to him.

Thank you Dad!

Thank you for all the things you have taught me. The time and the energy you took in raising me. You are my constant friend. You taught me to love the Lord, which was the greatest gift. You’ve been my encourager and cheerleader in all walks of life.

You may not know it, but I’m thankful for you. Every sacrifice you’ve made has not gone unnoticed.

I’ll never forget when I graduated and you cried. You were so proud. Dad it was an honor to make you proud.

I forgive you.

Not all dads are superheroes. I soon come to that realization with my own Dad. Even through the trials Dad, you have taught me. It took a while to forgive you, but I did. I forgave, because in that time I learnt to rely on my heavenly Father Jesus. I forgave because you will always be my Dad.

Things I’ve hardly got to say.

There are many things that I wish I had said more to my Father. Luckily for me, God has still blessed me with more time with him. I want him to know that I truly love him. That he has been my mentor in many areas of life. That I’ve relied on you when I had no one else to rely on. Dad you are my best friend.

Dear Dad, you have forever left a mark on my heart. For ever thing you have done. Thank you!
