Father's Day

It's Father's Day and this year, I'm thankful, more than anything else, to just have my dad around.  A couple of months ago, my sister's best friend lost her dad to an unexpected heart attack, though most heart attacks are generally unexpected.  He was loading the car for a day trip to Fargo and the next second, he was gone.  This event shaped the way I view and think about my dad.  When we fight, I'm thankful that he's around to fight with.  I've always gone to him with problems and dramas and joys and tears, but I now appreciate the simple passing by him in the hallway (yep, I'm in my mid-twenties and I still live at home).  I'm lucky just to have a dad who is around.

Thanks for everything, Dad.  I love you.
