James Lawrence Moon Jr., I am so proud to be your daughter. I am so grateful for every thing you've ever said or done for us, for your steadfast love, patience and guidance. I love and accept the man you are - outside of your immense role in our lives. I pray for your continued health and for your personal fulfillment. My sisters and I are extremely fortunate to have you as our father and friend!
Thank you Dad for being such a dedicated Father, for being a friend....from when you would sing to us and teach us songs to stay safe ("watch your hands, watch your feet, watch your shoulders, watch your seat") to taking me to cheerlead at wrestling matches, violin practice, and coming to my rescue when I was in a crunch with my would-be first apartment in Baltimore. I love you for the sacrifices you've made for me and the support and hugs.
Dad, I want to thank you for being the best Father and taking care of us all these years and even now accompanying me to the fitness gym and keeping the motivation high as I challenge myself to lead a healthier lifestyle. "Always There" is my theme song for you.
By the way, there are a few articles related to Father's Day that I think should be read. There are some who state that we should honor them 365, however, I don't see a problem here for we can do both. We can honor them every day and still set aside a day of recognition. One doesn't cancel out the other. This perspective also pertains to Mother's Day and or Valentine's Day. We don't have to box ourselves in an either/or stance. "Many things are true at once". Love that quote.
