Today I wish to honor my dad. He has encouraged and supported most of my decisions in life. I know that he wanted a different job for me, but he suported my choice to become a teacher. He taught me to drive a manual transmission. He drove me back and forth to college for four years. He has built and repaired numerous things for me over the years. He was there to comfort me after two car accidents and two trips to the hospital. I don't ever remember a time that he has not supported, comforted, and loved me. (Yes, he set and reforced boundaries when needed.)
Since he has retired, I have seen a new side of him. The volunteer jobs he has taken have surprised me. He is such a caring and compassionate person. I love you, dad.
