Father's Day is on Sunday, so I thought I'd take the time to devote this post to my father and to all of us who want to pay tribute to our dads.
My father has always been one of my biggest supporters. He's the one who took me to the park and taught me how to ride a two-wheel bicycle without training wheels. He tutored me in Geometry my Sophomore year when I was struggling to understand what a Theorem was and how in the world all this pertained to real life.
I may have passed up 21 years ago, but Dad still calls me "princess". It doesn't matter I'm a married woman and a mother, I'm still his princess. In fact, all my sisters and I are his princesses.
These days Dad is still a hero of mine. He's a wonderful grandfather, an counselor, guide, and support. He still loves my mother dearly and he has a great relationship with all his sons-in-law.
My hope is that one day our own offspring will have as many wonderful memories of my husband as a father as I do of my own father.
