There are plenty of people who cheerlead me through life. I am grateful for each and every one of them, but when it comes down to it, there is one fan I couldn’t live without. This person is by far my biggest fan – he is my Dad.
He was simply born to be a Dad. He is generous with his love and encouragement. He is a patient teacher, a voice of reason and tells me how proud he is of me almost every time we talk.
When the sky seems to be falling, he knows how to calm me down and put things into perspective. When I am elated about something, he truly shares my joy.When I am struggling with something and feeling defeated, he always tells me to never give up, dust myself off and move forward. This mantra helps me overcome life’s challenges and not let them keep me “down for the count.”
He has been especially supportive through my job search. His complete faith in me and my ability to find my dream job has really kept me going.
This post was inspired by his last two comments. They were the first things I read this morning. It was such a joyous way to start my day.
- “My biggest joy is you.”
- “I always love reading your posts. You bring so much joy to so many people. I love you, Dad.”
This previous comment is another common piece of his advice. This outlook has definitely helped me navigate life.
- “You can’t change the past, but you sure can change the future.”
Thanks, Dad. I am so very lucky to have you. I love you more than you’ll ever know.
Who’s your biggest fan and why?
