For me, nothing compares to the love and compassion my dad showed me throughout his lifetime. His love was indeed unconditional. However, my dad did not waver in disciplining me when I did something wrong. Nevertheless, my childlike spirit told me that he wanted me to become the best person that I could be. Years later, as a flawed adult, the mistakes continued. Of course, the significance of these adult blunders was much larger than the childhood consequences I encountered. Yet, I could still count on my dad’s unequivocal love and acceptance. While my dad went to heaven 31 years ago, I thank God for giving me a dad with such a big heart.This weekend, I am sending hugs, kisses, and gratitude to my dad in heaven and to all dads who depict spiritual leadership and unconditional love in the lives of their children.
