“My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person: He believed in me.” -Jim Valvano.
How true that is. It matters so much that someone believes in us – sees our potential before we realize it – praises every step forward, no matter how small. I think God anoints people to be able to do that. I think he gives them the ability to be an encouragement to others. My father was a constant source of encouragement. For this reason, I always wanted to be around him, and I was blessed to have him while he was here. On this Father’s Day, I don’t mourn the loss of my dad; I celebrate that he was mine.
Happy Father’s Day!
