I talk with my parents on the phone almost every week. My family is by far the biggest support in my life. My dad hardly texts, so I am always happy to see one from him appear on my phone.
This one caught me a little off guard:
"I was thinking about you and had to tell you how much I admire you and all you do! I am amazed at your ability, your resourcefulness, your dedication. I didn't mean to go on like that, I just wanted to let you know how terrific I think you are! I love you."Talk about the warm fuzzy!
I hope when I come out to him in July he will still think of and love me the same way. I don't want to disappoint the best role model I have had in my life.
But that is July. Right now, I am happy with the positive affirmation.
I love you too, Dad.
