For all things you've lead me through and taught me
And for promising me that you will never leave me
Through and through you've shown me the ropes
Helping me in anything and everything I face
Everyday you're there for me by simply calling your name
Rarely do I get to thank you enough. So on this special day, I do exactly that.
Thank you for being my father!
Dear Father, Daddy, God and Jehovah;
What a day!? A day to remember who has taught me, guided me and instilled wisdom in me my entire life. You have promised countless times that you love me. You have promised countless times that you will never leave me. You even went so far as to show me how much you love me by sending your only Son. Can I ask for anything else? Of course I can, and I always do. As any good father would do, you do what you feel is right in whether or not I should get what I ask for.
I hope one day to be even half or even a quarter of the Father you've been to me. I hope that when my kids need something, I'm there for them as you have been for me. I hope that when my kids have questions, that I'm there for them as you have been for me. I hope that when they are going through good times or bad that I'm there for them, just as you have always been there for me.
So I end this letter by thanking you for being my Father and by writing that I have been VERY blessed by being one of your children! Furthermore, I want to thank for your undivided attention for me by treating me as your only child when I'm talking, even though you have countless children.
Happy Father's Day! Love your son, Aaron
