I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I could never settle on anything. I could be an astronaut, an actor, a teacher, an artist, a store manager – I really never focused on anything in particular.
I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up.
But that’s not quite true.
I wanted to be a dad.
So, in college, I studied “Marriage, Family, and Human Development.” I figured that no matter what job I had, my degree would help me no matter what.
Then the years went by after college. I was a member of at least ten different singles wards.
It was pretty lonely at times.
I wondered if I’d ever be a dad.
And then, wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles: this girl came into my life.
And I was happier than I’d ever been.
And wouldn’t you know it, things just got even better.
God gave us Anna Liberty.
So on this Father’s Day, I wanted to say THANK YOU to my amazing wife, and my incredible daughter.
I did get to be a dad, after all.
And it’s better than I ever imagined.
Thanks, again, babe. I love you forever.
