Happy Father's Day!

Dad,

It's been not quite seven years since you came into my life. I met you the day after I fell head over heels in love with your eldest daughter. You freaked me out quite a bit in those days. But then I guess I probably freaked you out a bit, too. We've butted heads and had a few more disagreements than our respective fairer halves like. They both say it's because we're so much alike in so many areas. Well, I'm proud of that comparison. Because when it comes down to it, you're the yardstick by which I measure my own fatherhood. You mean quite a lot to me, old man.

Have a blessed day!
