Happy 60th Birthday Daddy

Dear Daddy,

You are my hero and you are my role model. You have been My Protector and my safe harbor. You have given me so much Comic Relief. And my time with you is always filled with laughter. You’ve been my savior and you’ve been My Friend.

Thank You, Daddy.

Thank you for everything you have ever done for me, and my son. Thank you for believing in me, standing by me, and supporting me. Your unconditional love has been more than enough. Not only did you save my life, but you gave me a life.

A life that I want to live.

You have taught me some of the most important lessons, like what it truly means to be an important part of a real family, and how to take pride in a hard day’s work.

When I look at you, I see a man whose honor and integrity shines above all others. I can only hope that my son grows up to be half the man you are.

I wish there was some grand gesture, or words bigger than ‘I LOVE YOU’ to express just how much I value, treasure, and cherish our relationship. I want you to know how special you are to me.

Please always remember:

You are the family I have always wanted.

You are The Father I have always needed.

I love you daddy.

Happy 60th Birthday.

    Happy Birthday to someone who shares the same special B-day that I do. It’s a tough day to have a birthday on, but treat it with kindness and it will do the same. Wait, what the #%$%#& am I talking about? It’s just a day. No, it’s OUR day. Whoa, hold on, that makes it sound like it’s our anniversary or something…

    Ok, here’s the deal. I am going to start over…

    The Girl I WILL Bring Home To Momma:
    Having a GOOD daddy is so very important to us girls.


    He really IS my HERO.

    (Please when I was shopping for his card? I broke down sobbing in the store. People were looking at me like I was CRAZY. I turned and said, “I just love my father so much”…)

    Thank you my ‘other daddy’.
    That gave me the reassurance I needed!

    You Rock.
    I hope the same for you and yours!

    MoMo Fali:

I know she loves you, and anyone that makes her happy, is “A-OK” by me (not that they need my approval or anything, but you get what I mean).

    Happy Birthday!

  • A big happy birthday to your dad from me!

  • I have similar feeling about my Dad. We are very lucky to have Fathers like this. So many don’t.

  • Meleah

    Yes. Even at 60 my dad still rocks the hunky factor!

    After a rather difficult childhood, I finally got The Best Dad EVER at age 17.
    And, yes, that has made all the difference in my life. I am lucky. I know what its like NOT to have a good father.
