For Father’s Day, I received three gifts from my children, in addition to their very being, of course, which is truly the gift that keeps on giving the whole year through. Oftentimes even in the middle of the night.
In no particular order of importance, I was given:
1. MY VERY OWN PILLOW PET!!! Snuggly Puppy in the house, y’all!
2. A delicious strawberry Father’s Day cake lovingly decorated with pink frosting, a 2-inch layer of sprinkles, and just under 150 candles that spelled out “DAD.” When lit, it was visible from the International Space Station.
3. This letter written by my 7-year-old son, Nolan.
Words are a special gift, especially from loved ones. And they don’t set off fire alarms.
But seriously, Snuggly Puppy!
Yeah, I know, I know.
The letter was the best thang of all.
