Happy birthday Dad💗 When I was a kid every night before bed, you’d pick me up and carry me on your shoulders. I’d always laugh as you paraded me around the house chanting and singing. I thought the world of you. Twenty years later, you are still equally loving, gentle and silly. You have not aged in spirit. Although you don’t carry me around physically anymore, I always know you are there for me and I think the world of you. How lucky I am to call you my father, but also my mentor and one of my best friends. I hope that I will be as kind, strong and wise as you are someday. And with all my heart I hope you achieve everything you wish to achieve in life and beyond—you deserve only the best😘 #happybirthday #❤️ #quarantinebirthday #likefatherlikedaughter
