Im not sure what its like to be a step father but I can only imagine from my own perspective in the dynamics of this family, that it’s probably been the hardest job on earth. I don’t think I would have survived if the roles were reversed, given the tools of my upbringing that I would have had to work with. What I admire most about your commitment is how you always seem to put the energy of your love for us around everything else that trying to rip us apart.
I have watched you over this time navigate a path that came with out directions, into a family that has continued over time to diminish & take away the role that you became. Sometimes the universe unbeknownst to us, chooses the timing of a love to come into fruition regardless of the external forces, to teach its lessons in that kind of love. I believe we have always been chosen in each life together, to show the world around us, this intimate most beautiful lesson, as difficult & painful as it’s been.
In the last 5.4 years, I have watched you love these daughters as your own flesh & blood, even in time you were left empty handed. I have witnessed the pride in your fatherhood role, even when it was resisted & one sided, never giving up because your love always wins. You have always maintained a constant in a most shape shifting arena, demonstrating a resilience while teaching these girls about the importance of your own personal boundaries.
I cant imagine what its been like to be you in the circle of us, but I thank you for sticking around & never giving up on me & these beautiful souls. Thank you For the constant understanding, strength, comfort, courage, compassion & love that has always flowed unconditionally within these challenging times. So today on this Fathers day I raise my grail of black liquid gold to you, for sticking with the vision of this divine love that we hold couragiously together for our family.
I want you to know that it never goes unnoticed in my own eyes for who you are to these girls, what you do to provide & the sacrifices you did in to in order to be here now. Thank you for always believing is me, in the girls, in our family & the dreams we share together! HAPPY FATHERS DAY!
