There are few times when I have said it but today seemed like the right day to do this. It’s Father’s Day. I am away from my Dad and it is during these times I am away that I start reflecting on my family and how amazing they are.
I have been blessed with probably the best dad on the planet. I know many people say that about their fathers. However, I can truly say that I mean this. My many memories of my father include him working hard but always taking the time to spend time with his kids. He provided for his family (not just financially) but in the ways a father should provide for a family. He loves his kids.
Even during this PhD journey, one journey that continues to have uphill climbs, I have found myself constantly grateful for the fact that I can call my dad and talk to him when I am having an off day or share with him good news.
