Dear Dad, Happy Father's Day

Today is Father's Day. I wanted to express my love and gratitude to my father. I am doing in the way I know works best for me. I am writing this letter to him. I wish this letter does justice to my feelings for My Hero. Here wishing all the wonderful fathers in the world a very Happy Father's Day. Dad, we kids would not be anything if it were not for your love and support. Thanks for everything you do for us. Love, Love and Lots of Love.

Dear Dad,

Happy Father’s Day. Today and everyday of the year I would thank God for giving me the best father in the entire universe. I am the luckiest kid around. A father is a child’s hero, he is the one a child looks up to for inspiration and you are My Hero. You and Mom brought me in this beautiful world. You held my hand as I took the first steps in this world. Your touch always made me feel that I am safe; with you around I have nothing to fear. You took care of me, feed me, bathed me and sent me to dream lands in my sleep. You were my first teacher, you taught me about plants, animals, nature, people and life. On my first day to school, you came to leave me and make sure I was at home there. I still remember that first and last slap you gave me when I cried that I don’t want to go to school. Maybe that slap served as a lesson for me, a path to guide me on my future education. I feel that slap was your way of telling me the importance of education. The memories of you buying me every toy I laid my eyes on are still fresh in my heart. Every time I would say this is the last toy I will buy Dad, to which you would say remember this for the next time we are in the shop. But the next time never came, and you happily continued fulfilling my every desire. You never made any distinction between my brother and me. You always worked hard to give us the best in life. They say a father always has a soft corner for his daughter, and you are the epitome of that. I know well that I will always be my Daddy’s Little Angel.
Your life serves as an inspiration for me. You are a gem of a human being, you care for others more than you care for yourself. You have endured hardships at every stage in you life and through it you have emerged victorious always. That for me is the mark of a noble human being. I still remember how would help out any person who knocked on your door. I did not like that you help everyone because I felt that these people were just using you. But now I realize that you did it without any expectations and it is the good will of the people that was important for you. As they always say, when you help others the most important thing you can get in return is their heart felt blessings. I count my blessings everyday; thank the Almighty for making me your daughter.
You and Mom have made the journey of my life memorable. Every moment shared with you is precious. You unending love for me is truly amazing; you love me even when I am wrong. What more can I ask for. Baba, I am proud to be your daughter. I am proud that you are My Hero. You have given me everything that I have desired for and never asked anything in return. I wish to make you proud of me, as I am proud of you. That is my ultimate aim in this life. Today and every day of my life I pray to the Almighty to give you good health and all the success in life.

Love,

Pallavi.

Pallavi-

I really havent read your blog- completely- yet, I read your intro, and I think the "about you" is very simple, yet very powerful. Good luck with your blogging.
