My Father is an amazing man. He works hard to provide for his family, he loves all six of his daughters unconditionally, and loves our Mother even more. That is the greatest gift he has ever given his daughters: loving our mother to no end. He has taught us so much and has prepared us to go out into the world and be independent. He has taught us how to make our own decisions, and always forgives us when we've made the wrong one.
He has comforted us in our time of need and has made us laugh when we thought we'd never smile again. He has stayed up late at the kitchen table trying to help me with math homework,while I cry in frustration. My dad works out of the country so that he can provide us with what we need and also, the things that we want. My dad is not greedy. He is always willing to help anyone that needs it. He is forgiving, and kind, and gentle, and he loves God. My Father is an amazing man.
      It's Happy Father's day to all the wonderful Father's out there. And to mine: although you aren't here with us today, as you're in Australia, I hope that you are having a wonderful day and know how much your family loves you. I hope you know that all of your daughters love and miss you. You are the best dad we could have ever asked for.  Thank you for everything hat you have ever done for and given to us. We couldn't have been given a better Father. I love you, Dad.
