Dear Step-dad

A letter from a step son to his step dad...Dear step dad, Funny how I address you as stepdad instead of just calling you dad. Because in all aspects you are MY DAD.

The man who came into my mum's life picked her up(even though she was tough to pull up) and treated her like a queen. You didn't have it all: a dropout, a handyman with a big heart who listens first and asks questions later.

It was you who taught me how to act like a man and give respect to women. I must say I didn't like you at all. First, I was just trying to protect Mum after Dad walked out on us. You treated us like your own. Never minding the time or day, you took those reins and became the man I aspire to be: strong, loving, and kind-hearted. You always took the time to listen to my worries and insecurities. You weren't just my dad but my best friend(aside mum, of course). 

Today, you become my father, my dad, and my partner in crime(smile, dad). Thank you for bringing joy to our hearts, taking us as your own, never giving up on me, being patient with me, and guiding me to a better, healthier path. Thank you for making my mother learn to love and appreciate who she is and what she's worth. Thank you for being the shoulder she can cry on whenever she's frustrated or just emotional(I blame the hormones ). I want to be you someday, the laugher. 

The one who finds joy in family, the shepherd, the protectorate, and the alpha. I salute you. Happy birthday, Dad.Lots of love from your son.

P.S. Can I have the keys to the Jaguar, please?
