Father’s Day is a very special day for the men in our lives. They are a symbol of strength, safety, and love. I was blessed to be raised by a father, Papa, who was always there for me. Showed me love, tough love, security and a great example of committment. He always knew he wanted 3 children, and at the age of 36 became a single parent to those 3 children. There were tough times but he always managed to make it through. Although I tell him all the time, I’d like to tell my Papa how proud I am to be his daughter. I love him and cherish him and I will always be his little girl-“Mija”
Later in life I crossed paths with a man who had many of my father’s traits. I consider myself lucky to have found someone similiar to my Papa. I married that man, and after 11 years of marriage we welcomed our first son this past December.
This Father’s Day is the most special for my husband as it’s his first. I plan to make it memorable with special activities with the family and make memories that he’ll never forget. I Love You Hunny! You are a wonderful Daddy and devoted husband.
