It is said that before we are born into this world we choose the parents
we will be born to. We look deep into their hearts and see the stuff that
they are unaware is even there. We’re not looking for love
or protection we’re looking for the lessons that we still need to
learn. Which means I chose you. I chose your
arms to hold me tight and wipe away my tears. I chose your eyes
to sooth away the fears and your wisdom to guide me through the night.
The love you taught me is priceless. The lessons you gave me
are worthless without first considering the sacrifices you made for me.
Today you are one year older and because of this I am one year
wiser. I celebrate not the years that have slowly seeped through
the hour glass, but the memories you have given me, the belief
that has stood untouched since the first time you held me. I celebrate
the honor of calling you my Dad. Happy Birthday xxx.
