Dear Dad

Get a load of this guy!
Dear Dad,

Since it's father's day - I just wanted to take a moment and let you know how grateful I am that the Universe gave me you...(or is it the other way around?)  I mean, I did it for mom, right?....anyway...

I don't know if words can express how thankful I am to have you.  You may or may not remember this - but when you bought me that book, Maiden Voyage by Tania Aebi, so many years ago - you set my life's course in motion.  You may not realize it, but when I asked you "Daddy, can I race with you?" and you said "Sure", you changed my life forever.  Quietly and patiently, you let me take the reigns and watched me grow; you let me trip and were always there to help me up after the fall.  You subtly guided me with your wisdom and knowledge, as you continue to do so every single day.

You have selflessly let your dream become mine.  Not only have you given me this gift - you have raised me up to heights I could not have imagined so that I could reach it, you have given me the tools so that I can live it.  Thank you. We would not be where we are today if not for your time, knowledge and experience.  You put so much time, love and energy into our little boat so that it would safely carry your daughter and son-in-law where it may, and for that, I am forever indebted to you.

You have taught me how to be good.  You have taught me how to be strong.  You have shown me what it is to have integrity and character.  Dad, you are the most incredible man I know and I strive to be more like you every day.  I am so proud to be your daughter.  You are my number one counsel, you are my number one fan, and you are the best dad a girl could ever ask for.  Thank you, for everything.

I love you,

Brittany
