Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing men who pour into their families and raise us into better people ❤️ .
Although I’m not home in Michigan with my dad this weekend, I’ve been reflecting on how lucky I am to have him around. I took this picture as I was leaving home on Mother’s Day last year because I thought my dogs looked so cute. It ended up being the last time I saw my dad before he was hit by a car the next week. .
I love holidays and any reason to celebrate, but I wish it didn’t take a special day to tell people how much we appreciate them. End arguments quickly. Don’t hold grudges. Make the phone call when you have 5 minutes. Text them something to let them know you’re thinking of them. Take the time to plan that trip. Tell people entirely too often how much you love them. .
I wish my dad didn’t have to get hit by a car for me to understand how precious this life is and how quickly it can all change. Thankful doesn’t begin to cover how I feel today because I know other girls would give anything to talk to their dads one more time. Counting my blessings today and every day, because like every other girl on social media today, I’m declaring that I have the best dad in the world!
