After the Mother’s Day post, I couldn’t forget about a little tribute to dads. Maybe it’s your biological father, or maybe it’s a step-dad, older brother, uncle, cousin, or even a grandpa…whoever played the role of “dad” in your life is someone special. They’ve watched you grow up, coached your softball team, thought of ways to scare the living daylights out of your prom date, and cried when you left for college. They were there when you needed help moving into your first apartment, and then they showed up to fix all of the things not working in said apartment. When you got your heart broken, they gave you hope that one day you’d find someone just like them. And now, they’ll walk you down the aisle and hand over the key to your now-mended heart. As happy as they’ll be on your wedding day, they’ll also be just a teeny bit sad. My own dad bawled like a baby at my wedding. This might sound mean but I LOVE to see photos of dads crying. All of their raw emotion – the bittersweetness, happiness, joy, sadness, and more – is captured in one frame that is tear-jerking in and of itself. But along with that, I also love the look on a dad’s face when he meets his daughter’s groom at the end of the aisle, or when he’s dancing with his baby girl, or even when he’s toasting to the newlyweds. It’s as much his day as it is yours. So to all the dads out there, thanks for showing us what unconditional love really means. Happy Father’s Day!
