Being there for this special event with my dad was such a great experience. There was a very slight chance that I wouldn't make it, but I knew without a doubt that I was going to be there. My dad has always been there for me and supported me in every accomplishment I have ever had, how could I miss this one of his?
All throughout the day I kept thinking about how amazing of a person he is. I was constantly filled with such pride at his hard work and courage to do what he did. I am so thankful that he sacrificed so much for us as kids growing up, and I am even more thankful that he has found something that he really enjoys doing. As a kid, I remember wondering why Dad didn't have the summers off like the rest of us. Now, he finally does. Nobody deserves to enjoy a little more time off than my dad. He is the hardest working, most respectable and admirable man I know and he has overcome many obstacles to be who he is today.Oh, and by the way, he graduated Cum Laude and got Student of the Year. Rock on Dad!
