my role model.

Thank you for showing me what it means to work hard. Thank you for showing me that in the end, it’s not about me, it’s about what you do for others. Your dedication to healing, fixing and helping others by always putting them before yourself, is noticed.

Thank you for showing me that going to work - every. single. day. – is what matters.  As a kid, I never understood why you worked all the time, but now I know.

Thank you for taking the risks and leaps that you did to support our family.

Thank you for being my greatest role model.

I only hope to be as compassionate, thoughtful and kind-hearted as you.

Happy Birthday Dad.

I love you.
