You are the yardstick on which I measure every man I meet.
You are the foundations upon which my humour, my judgement and my moral code were built.
Your words of wisdom ring around my brain on a daily basis.
Thanks to you I have some mad handy skills, I didn’t even know I would need.
Thanks to you, I am not often taken for a fool, you gave me just a little bit of cynicism which has seen me in good stead.
You also gave me crazy good self-worth.
I have never not been enough in your eyes and that has helped me no end, to battle with my darkest demons.
Thank you for protecting me and defending me the way a father should and thank you for believing that I could do anything.
Most amazingly of all, is that you did all of the above and yet still manage to wind me up within minutes of being in your company.
That’s a father/daughter relationship.
I have been blessed.
Happy Father’s Day.
