Ode to Fathers

"A man's children and his garden both reflect the amount of weeding done during the growing season". -- Unknown

Fathers provide:
• Self-less giving; rock, protector and provider.
• Reliable, steadfast and all- knowing.
• Guiding hand, high expectations
• Kind and loving heart

Today, I reflect on all that my father has been and done for me.


I thank him for my work ethic, my motivation to be a better me and strength to persevere no matter the obstacle.


I appreciate all that he gave for ensuring that our family was safe and had all that we needed.

He is a brave and strong force of change. His foresight and vision that changed the trajectory of life for our lineage that will be seen in generations to become.


The love that I have felt throughout my life.

I love you Dad! Thank you for being my rock. Happy Father's Day!
