The love that a girl receives from her father is unique, unconditional, and truly unlike any other love that she will experience in her life. Every man that enters her life should be held, in comparison, to how her father has treated her, as well as how he has loved her mother. I mean, for example, the love between my mom and dad is just so true it makes my heart smile. I am beyond privileged, and fortunate, to be able to say that my dad (the greatest man on the planet) has led by example and has always shown me how to behave with dignity and grace. I am so proud to call him my father and I don’t know what I would do without him. He embodies and exudes every trait that a father should have, and hopefully pass down to their children. Dad, I want to wish you the happiest of birthdays today and know that I love you so much and will always hold a special place in my heart for you. You are my hero. I will always love you.
