Father’s Day is just around the corner and it has us thinking about special moments with dads in our lives. Whether it’s our dads, grandpas our dads we know and admire, this is the time where we can tell just how much we appreciate everything they’ve for us and for everyone around them. So in that light, the sundays team wanted to share a few words for dads in their lives.
Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Thank you for the sleepless nights you spent working while I slept soundly. Thank you for sacrificing moments to take care of me. Thank you for watching me make mistakes and still being by my side. Thank you for being a shoulder to cry on no matter what. Thank you for teaching me how to swim, ride a bike and read. Thank you for sacrificing everything and moving us to the U.S to make sure I had the best education and life. Nothing I do will ever reach the sacrifices you’ve made for me, but I can try my best to now take care of you and show you how much I appreciate everything you’ve done for me.
Thank you for everything! My favorite memories with you include going on walks around your neighborhood, listening to your jokes, going to the ice cream truck around the corner with you and getting excited to see you when you picked me up from school. You have such an inspiring immigration story, and I always felt like I learned something new from you. You’ve always been there for me as if you’re my father, from when I was a little girl to now and I am so fortunate to have you in my life. Now, it’s my turn to take care of you!
I remember you driving us across New England, traveling from one boarding school to another. The highways melted together and the nerve-wracking interviews bled through my veins, but you were always there, silently but surely, nudging me forward and keeping me grounded. I remember one night when we ate at Red Lobster, and I learned about your life before I was born. Coming to the United States with only thirty dollars in your pocket, you faced the hardships of a strange country. And you conquered. Thank you for sacrificing so much and pushing through such hardships. Thank you for your wise yet genial composure, for teaching me about family and humanity through the little things.
Happy Father’s Day! We encourage you to also share a few words about your special moments with dad. Or share what you admire about a dad you know. Email us your message for dad at firstname.lastname@example.org or dm us at @sundays_studio.
Sending you love and a wishing you a wonderful Father’s Day,
Amy and sundays family
