I have so many things to say about you so please forgive me if this “letter” is a mess. Thank you for being my dad, and really defining what that word should mean. Any male can become a father/dad, but that does not mean they are a good one. There are countless things that make you a wonderful father--big and small. You get me water whenever I want, you don’t lie to me, you’re always an ear to listen. The biggest thing you have done for me is bringing my sister into this world. For that and so many other things, I could never thank you enough. I truly believe that I have the best dad in the world. I don’t say that with the naivety of a child, as I previously have. I say that after being exposed to the world for nearly twenty years. I know I don’t know everything, but I have seen many fathers and their children. Many are great but none compare to you. I won’t pretend that you’re perfect or flawless. You’ve taught me many things and one of the things you’ve taught me, whether it was directly or indirectly, is how to love someone. Forgive me if I butcher your definition, but I’ve taken parts of what you’ve told me and my own …show more content…
Like I said, I know you’re not perfect. I think another part of love is accepting the bad, and not necessarily ignoring it but pocketing it, in a way. Loving you despite the little, insignificant things that make you imperfect. Thank you for being in my life because without I wouldn’t be who I am today. I know I am not perfect either, but I am happy with who I am and where I am because of you. Life is a journey and you make that journey infinitely better. I’ll save all the other great things I have to say about you for another time. Thank you for every big and small thing you do for the people in your life and me. You are so loved, and you deserve to hear that more often. Happy 51st Birthday,

For you are and always have been the one friend I can count on. I couldn’t have pictured my life without you being in it, for you have turned it into a special and valuable one. The memories of us keep flooding in my brain, making me the luckiest women; they say that in order to live happily you must find your own family. This being said I can tell you one thing having you in my life as a friend and a sister, I know I found my family. I can only hope that 50 years from now you will still want me in your life to help you raise your children and be a part of the family for
Pardon all the times that I have put in words, speech and actions my care towards you. I should have remained silence after the first time you demeaned their value by continuing to be careless. Honestly, I would not ever understand what prompted you to betray my trust and undermine all of my values. All I know, is that beyond your shortcomings, I wish you find the solace to commune with your deficiencies and to value your sufficiencies. To love oneself and another is never to accept to be claimed, used or abused by the ones we love or the ones that said to love us.
Protector, Provider, and a model on how to be a man; these are all of the roles that a father has in a child’s life. However, some fathers are not present in their children’s lives. It is clear that the issue of father absence has become an epidemic, according to the Census Bureau, the percentage of children living only with their mothers have increased from 8% to 24.2%. It has become so pervasive that the media thought it was necessary to make the, “Take Time to be a Dad Today” PSAs and billboards. After passing by
The Lord first chose Mom to be my Mom, later came you, to be my Dad. So, I believed that no matter where the sail may set after graduation, it will always be in His perfect timing that all things will work together in completeness. Mommy, You are probably one of the proudest person in the entire family, but you would not say it (Asian Moms does that). So, thank you for giving
You came into my life and changed me forever. Over the years people have complimented me for being a good mother but I can't take credit for that. You were born good and you were the one who was often teaching me. I believe you are an angel God sent to teach me. You taught me love. You taught me honesty. You taught me how to forgive and how to be strong. You are the strongest person I have ever known and you gave me strength when I was weak. When times were sad and tough I looked to you for strength. You taught me how to be myself. Most of all you taught me about life and how to live.
Friends, family, teachers Pastor and Mrs. Donley, thank you for being here today. I can’t thank you all enough for the things you’ve done for me and the ways you’ve all helped me in life. From all of the chapel messages I’ve heard from Pastor, all the English lessons from Mrs. Gerbitz, all the math lessons from Ms. Amy, especially the geometry, which I still don’t think I understand, and all the great times and life lessons I’ve learned from my classmates and friends, I can truly say I am thankful. Most of all, I’d like to thank my parents. Dad, you’ve always been there for me. If I ever needed advice on something I wouldn’t hesitate to go to you. You always knew what to say and when to say it to make me feel better. You taught me many different things in life, especially a great work ethic. Mom, what can I say? You’re my mom. As much as I may have annoyed you with different things I’ve done, you’ve always loved me and wanted what’s best for me. I love you both so much and can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done for me.
I didn't have my parents around growing up, so she was more like a mother to me if anything. I personalize my thank-you note to her by sending her a picture of me. Told her we could buy a frame together as soon as she picked out a color. I kept it sweet, and simple; so it was easy to Ramble On I didn't. The main point I wanted to get across, was how dare she was to me.
First of all, thank you. Thank you for a million things that are both noticed and unnoticed. You are a fantastic mother and I am so grateful to have you in my life. You mean the world to me and I know I do not tell you that enough.
Hello, Dad! It’s your 100th birthday today and I praise God for you are still alive. First of all, I want to thank God for your life because even though I was closer to Mom back when she was still living, you never failed to approach me and develop a harmonious relationship with me. You are the father that the Lord blessed me and my sister, you are the father that He has given us to protect us and provide for us. And you are the husband that God has chosen for Mom.
Today we come together to celebrate the life of a man who gave all he could the best way he could. He was my father. For his life I want to honor him and thank him. I have so much to be grateful for in my life today because this man gave me a vision for success and a spirit contained in a legacy that always goes forward.
Dad was my rock. He was always there or just a phone call away. He was the funniest man I knew, he could make you smile just by him walking into the room. But with all his fun did come a serious side of him. He was a stern and disciplined man, but he could never resist the opportunity to have a little fun here and there.
