I want to wish one of the two greatest persons I know (mom is the other one) a very happy birthday. My dad celebrated his nth birthday today.
I’m truly blessed to have a wonderful dad. A lot of people have asked me before how I’m able to cope with my problems, especially Pompe. Well one of the main reasons is my dad. He’s been a pillar of strength all these years. Giving me courage to go on. Always providing encouragement and pushing me forward.
I know that my dad is loved by his family, espcially us his immediate family. I am however truly happy that he is well loved not only by his family but by his co-workers and friends as well.
His staff at work made him a scrapbook with messages from people all over. It had messages from family, friends, co-workers, bosses, etc.. All of them had heartwarming messages for my dad. I can’t help but feel proud. While I was reading the scrapbook there was a warm feeling inside. I thought to myself “Hey, this is my dad they’re talking about, and it’s all wonderful things.”.
I know some people say nice things about others but don’t really mean it. I’m sure all the words in the scapbook were meant. My dad’s staff wouldn’t go through all that trouble if they really didn’t love him.
Dad, I just want you to know that I’m extremely blessed and lucky to have you. Words cannot express how happy I am that you’re my dad. I’ve a lot of heros that I look up to in this world. More are being added each day but no matter who else makes it on my heroes list, you’ll always be number 1.
Thanks for all the love and sacrifices you make for our family. You’ve always tried to give us all that we need. Our family might not be materially wealthy but we’re extremely rich because we have you.
I pray that God blesses you with a lot more years to come.
Happy birthday to a great dad!
