If we are lucky in life, we’ll have that one person to call our hero. They may not wear a cape or a mask, or leap tall buildings in a single bound. But their actions will be so much more powerful.
They’ll lift us up when we’re down, make us laugh when we would rather cry, calm our fears when everything looks scary, support our dreams no matter how crazy they seem, help shape us into our future self, and love us unconditionally until the end of time.
And for those of us whose heroes are no longer with us in person, we carry their wisdom, strength, support and love in our hearts every day, and know they’ll protect us forever.
Happy Birthday Daddy, my forever hero. I love and miss you every day!
