My father has poured amazing amounts of effort into my life.
Truthfully. He's done so much for me. He does the big and little things that I need. With driving, specifically, ever since I have needed rides for things he wasn't going to, he's made it a top priority. Every time I wanted a ride, but didn't need it, he would try his hardest to find a way out of his insanely busy schedule and work towards getting my transportation settled over his own.
Even now, when learning and getting better at driving, I learn how much he planned for my life. When I was probably not much younger than 9-10, he started having me drive mowers, dirt-bikes, and every once in a while, pull up his truck for him. He's always planned for me, and worked hard on figuring out what I need, and what he can do to provide.
He also did everything I needed to become who I am. He made me strong, teaching me how to be a man. He made me wise(wiserrr,) teaching me how to think deeply and with God's mind and word as a guide. He worked to make me intelligent, always pushing the importance of school and grades, while remaining firm about resting.
Balance in my life was huge. I wouldn't be the balanced, (sometimes =) disciplined kid I am now if I didn't have a guide rail of a father to know that I would be safe if I messed up, but nonetheless hurting. I knew my mistakes would have consequences, and I knew that my successes would be rewarded.
To be short with what I have to say: You did an amazing and loving Job, dad, Thank you.
