You’re a pretty cute kid.  

  
Even if you’re old now, you’re still a cute kid.

  
Everything you taught me about cars is still all I know about cars.

  
That awkward first day we saw each other for the first time in 15 years, watching your beloved eldest daughter be married.   

That following year’s visit, picking up the groom’s ashes from the funeral home.

  
All I wanted was for you to do right by the ones that need your love and deserve it.   

  
I think you may finally be getting it.  Going to your only granddaughter’s graduation gave me lots of hope for you. 

 

I’m proud of you, Dad.  You just may be that dad, great guy that I know you are, somewhere in the distant past. 

  My expectations are zero, now that I’ve truly forgiven him for ditching me for over a decade.  I know it’s true because I wouldn’t ever want him gone again. Ever.

 

 You’ve never been cruel to me.  Only showed me kindness, love and struggled for my well-being.  If my dad hadn’t been such a great guy to me, I would probably not have been able to know what one truly is. 
  
Thanks for all that stuff.  

Happy Father’s Day
