I miss you
Have you moved out of your parent’s house and it has been a long time since you saw your father? Then on fathers day, you may like to tell him how much you miss him and fix a date for when next you two will see.
Remember that for a long time your father’s world may have revolved around you; protecting and providing for you. So he certainly deserves some of your time and needs to know that you are missing him too.
I appreciate all that you have done for us
Fathers make sacrifices, some more regularly than others. Whether it is working harder and sleeping less to ensure that their families are well provided for or ignoring their dreams for more stability. You should let your dad know that you understand this and appreciate it.
You are my role model
We often look up to celebrities who may be inspiring, certainly, but may not even have gone through half of what our parents have gone through and survived. Is your dad on your list of role models? make sure to tell him.
If I find a man like you I would be so lucky
This is for daughters who have watched their fathers love their mothers consistently. Tell your dad that you respect the way he has done this and that if you find yourself a man like him you will consider yourself very blessed.
My children have the greatest grandad on earth
If you have kids, let your father know that you are glad that your kids get to meet him and have him as a granddad, it is just another way to let him know that you believe he did a great job raising you.
