Since college and marriage, I’ve always lived far from my Dad. So living in Costa Rica now isn’t much different. I’ll give him a phone call, and we’ll catch up on things.
Even though we only see each other every two to four years in person, we are close at heart. The older I get, my body and outwardappearance tells a different story, but Thelbert will always be my daddy, and I will always be his little girl. I’ve included an older photo of my dad with his favorite dog, Boots. Boots is no longer with us, but this picture captures my dad in his element–in his garage with his best friend.
I wish I could be there in person to celebrate, but the Skype call will have to do for now. My children are going to take their Dad out to lunch today and surprise him with a gift.
Happy Father’s Day, Daddy!
