For My Father


As Father's Day is approaching, I have found myself taking some time to reflect. Reflecting on the amazing support I receive from my father, his constant encouragement to pursue my passion and most importantly his constant love. This Father's Day is one that I am extremely grateful for because I can stand firmly in the love and support my father has built up for me from half way around the world. Despite being miles away, I find myself thankful that I have someone so worth missing. With everything that has changed over this past year,  I know I am not the only one  missing my dad this Father's Day. Having lost my Grandad and my Grandpa this past year, I know that this Father's Day and the many to come will be different. With two empty chairs around the dinner table and a few less "dad jokes", I know it goes without saying that they will always be missed. Now whether or not our fathers are here to fill their seat at the dinner table today, may we reflect on the memories and bring light to the lives they lived, the same way they continue to bring light to ours. May we celebrate all the amazing things about our fathers and our fathers' fathers with an overflowing joy  in our heart for this fathers day and everyday to come.  Life is a gift and it deserves to be celebrated. So this one is for my Grandad, my Grandpa and my Dad. Happy Fathers Day,
