Today is the day the world was blessed with the birth of my dad. He is an interesting mix of being the smartest person I know along with one of the most taboo and outrageous personalities I’ve ever encountered. Simply put, he is truly one of a kind. At first, it was hard seeing the similarities between me and my dad, but the resemblance has become more apparent over the years. Besides my book smarts, I mainly attribute my dad as the reason why there are times where I have no filter, but, over those characteristics, I thank my dad for the position I’m in now. I know that, without many of the sacrifices and decisions my dad made in the past, my present would be a completely different scenario. I’ve learned things happen for a reason and, if one thing is for sure, my dad is a person I can count on for almost anything, no matter the situation. Not many people can say that about anybody, especially their dads. So, on his birthday, I want to celebrate the beautiful bond we’ve developed and how proud I am to call him my dad.
Happy Birthday Pa!
