So here it goes…
To my dearest best daddy in the world,
Firstly, I hope you like the card and the other presents. I thought I’d get you this superdad tatty bear because you have been like a ‘superhero’ in my life. You may not know how to fly like a superhero but you were still able to save me whenever I’ve had a crisis in my life. You have taken on the role of both parents a lot of the times and we know how challenging that was, and I sometimes I made it even harder being ever so difficult (yes, I’m saying this today with much regret). I wish I could understand what you were going through and been less of a wild child, but now I do.
I can’t begin to tell you how special you are to me. I know I don’t get to tell you this because both of us are so caught up in our lives. We are both so busy and I tend to be grumpy most of the time, I don’t get to express what I feel for you. I definitely don’t appreciate you enough and I really should be doing more to tell you how much you mean to me.
Thank you for being the guiding light in my life. I may like to call myself an adult to the world (because I’m 22), but secretly I know, without you, I wouldn’t have survived a single day! It’s only because of you I’m able to maintain my sanity. If it weren’t for you, I would have sunk in darkness long ago. You’re always there for me every time I need you and your support means everything to me because without it, I would not function.
One of the things children tend to do is they simply take their parents for granted. I definitely do take you for granted most of the time. I’ll be honest with you, it took me a very long time to realise I was doing this as well. It was only in the last year or two I realised I need to be more aware of my actions of what I’m doing because I don’t want to hurt you ever (I blame the teenage years for keeping me in the state of mind fogginess :P)
Anyway, now that I’m armed with this relatively new realisation and post-teenage wiseness, I hope I can show you just how much you mean to me, not just on Father’s Day but every single day.
Finally, I wish you have a wonderful Sunday!
Love you always and forever
From your little girl xo
