All my life I thought I knew what unconditional love was. I thought I had learned it from the first boy I had ever loved, and although he could accurately describe what unconditional love was to me, he didn’t ever shower me with its gift. I thought I knew what it was from some of my friends, and although I have some really good friends, none of their love was ever really unconditional. I thought I knew what unconditional love was by being loved and adored and worshipped by some of the lovers I’ve had, but most of them have lied and all of them have left.
But I can truthfully say that nobody has ever loved me more unconditionally than my own Father. He is honestly one of the greatest gifts I have ever been given in this life. I don’t know what I did to deserve such a solid, compassionate, honest, present and understanding Father, but here he is. He gives me so much and I only hope to be able to give back that much to him someday. Saying ‘i love you’ sometimes just isn’t enough.
I just have so much to be thankful for, and life gets better. He is living proof of that.
Thanks Dad. I love you so much.
Ps, here’s a link to his blog, just because he’s too amazing not to follow.
