First and foremost, Happy Father’s Day to ALL the fathers out there: dads, stepdads, uncles or friends who chose to step into that role in someone’s life, bonus dads, adoptive dads, gay dads, and even you moms out there who play the dual role of both momma and daddy. You are appreciated.
To those of you that may struggle with Father’s Day... those who have lost your dad or those who don’t have the type of dad that deserves celebration, you are in my heart and prayers this weekend.
This is my first Father’s Day since losing my dad last October. Reality is... it sucks. However I am going to choose to find the good in it by remembering my Dad and all of the lessons he taught me - verbally and mostly non-verbally.
And that is my wish for you today. Find the good and hold onto it. If you have a great dad, celebrate him and be sure to give him a hug - literally or virtually.
If this day is a sad one for you, hold on to the good. Remember all of the great people you have in your life who love you unconditionally, regardless of gender - whether that’s a relative, a friend, a mentor, a coach, or your partner. (And if it’s your mom, and she’s still on this plane of existence, be sure to give her extra love and appreciation!)
Finally to my Dad:
Robert J Reynolds aka “Bob” -
Man oh man do I miss you.
I know Mom is taking great care of you in heaven and you're enjoying that immensely after so many years.
I am so grateful that you were my Dad, my Coach, and one of my biggest Cheerleaders... and now another Angel watching over me.
Thank you for believing in me, even when you were terrified I was making a huge mistake.
My goal for the rest of my life is to find a way to continue to make you proud.
I love you Dad.
Have a blessed weekend full of grace!
With gratitude and love,

If you are a female same-sex parent (or the kid lucky enough to have that mom or moms), I celebrate you too this weekend! As well as the gentleman who partnered with you to make you a mom - whether you know him or not. I appreciate you. Thank you for following your heart and showing that love is love and family doesn't have to look the same to be family. ❤️
