To My Dad

Hey Dad,

I know I said I wouldn't single you out on my blog, but I hope you'll forgive me for doing it anyway. With all that's been going on, and the fact that half the time when I get out of the house it's with you, I couldn't get you a nice father's day gift on time this year. As much crap as I give you publicly, I wanted to say I love you and thank you for being my father.

Your love, support, humor and general fatherly characteristics are directly related to much of the success I enjoy today. I know that you have had to make choices that most parents never have to contemplate. You've had to go to more doctor's appointments, pharmacy pick-ups, random ThermaCare finding outings and coffee shops to help me try to remain more comfortable. And in a world where being involved in a child's life can be challenging with work schedules and responsibilities, you've always made the sacrifices necessary to be there for me.

Even as I give you a hard time, I am looking forward to having you around for many more years of my life. Here's to more random annonymous comments, random short emails, links and grammatical corrections.

I love you,
