He taught you how to ride a bike. He helped you reel in your very first fish. He cheered you on at your baseball games, no matter how many times you struck out. He guided your knobby hands to hammer in the nail on your very own playground set. He let you sit in his lap to steer the car on a drive through quiet neighborhood streets. He led you out into the darkness to watch a meteor shower. He helped you heave that couch up three flights of stairs as you moved into your very first apartment. He lent you his arm to lean on as he walked you down the aisle. He taught you confidence, independence, and a sense of humor.
He is Dad.
This Father’s Day, celebrate all that Dad has done for you..
