Would he be pleased with a paisley tie? A cheesy mug that says, "World's Greatest Dad?" A pair of silly looking golf pants?
What do you give the father who gave you everlasting life? A father who always endures, always forgives and always loves?
I suppose the best gift I can give him is the same thing that every father wants not only on Father's Day but every day. I can give him my love and my time.
I can thank him for everything he's ever done for me, the sacrifices he's made and for loving me when I am prickly and practically no one else can tolerate me. I can praise him for his awesomeness. I can pledge to him, my undying devotion.
As far as earthly father's go, I didn't draw a lucky hand. One abandoned me and one abused me BUT...I do finally know the unconditional love of a father, one whose heart smiles every time he sees me.
I belonged to him all along. I just never knew it.
I finally found my way home. I burst through the door and screamed his name. I searched feverishly and quickly found him welcoming me with open arms. Daddy! I'm so happy to see you and I love you! Happy Father's Day!
