Thank You Dad

thank u for being my dad

To My Daddy-

Thank you for showing me what hard work is. For putting in more hours than any person should, both at work and at home. I am blessed that I always had everything I needed, and so much of what I wanted. That would not have been possible without you. You showed me that the world doesn't stop running; even when you are sick, tired, or just need a break. There are always bills to pay, events to save for, and dreams to accomplish. If I know what hard work is, it is because of you.

Thank you for the midnights. For carrying me from the couch to my room when you got home from work. For running from one town to another when I forgot my medicine at a friends house. For answering your phone, every single time I call. No matter what you're doing, or ridiculous hour of the night it is. You always answer. If I know who to depend on, it is you.

Thank you for the life lessons. For every time you preached them, and I let it go in one ear and out the other. At least I remembered them when it was critical. "Save your money, pay your bills, get an education. Never let a man rule your life." (Whoo, that one came in handy.) "Check the oil on your car. Learn how to cook." If I know how to get through life, it is from you.

Thank you for not letting me off easy. For holding me accountable, even when it was so difficult for both of us. For not bailing me out, and letting me find my own way. For yelling at me and pushing me even when I hated you for it. Without you, I wouldn't have graduated. I wouldn't know how to make ends meet when I'm down to a dollar to my name. If I know how to fall down nine times but get back up ten it is because of you.

Thank you for loving me. Even when I was a teenager saying those awful phrases teenagers shout at their parents before slamming a door. Even when I didn't listen to a word you had to say. Even when I found my own path which was a roller coaster that wound and twisted and even went backward a few times, instead of staying the straight and narrow. If I know what unconditional love is, it is from you.

Thank you for being proud of me. When I was performing on stage, and it was one of the very few times you ever cried. When I passed my GED after so many hours of hard work. I will never forget the sound of your voice (through tears) telling me how proud you were. If I know what an amazing dad is, I know it's you.

So thanks, Dada. For every time you were there. Whether it was something big or small. I am so grateful, proud, and happy to be your little girl. You're the best dad I got!

Sweet Thanks Messages For My Dad On Father’s Day | Father’s Day Greetings

thank u for being my dad

Thank You For Being My Dad

Posted: August 22, 2011| Author:Sophie Doell|Filed under:Song Of The Day|

I stumbled upon the song “Thank You For Being My Dad” by Jon Barker (2006) while looking for another song on Youtube.  I’m so glad for this accidental find, and that I took a listen to it, because it’s such a touching song, and because it’s how I feel toward my Dad.  Those of you who know my life story are probably wondering, how so when your father abused you and abandoned you?

It is true that I wasn’t fortunate enough to have had an earthy father who loved me like this song writer’s dad loved him, and there was a time when songs like this would bring me tremendous sadness of an unfulfilled longing to be loved and cherished.  It’s true that I would never be able to say the words in this song about my father.  That deep longing to be loved made me vulnerable as I grew from a child into a young women and I got into a codependent relationship with a person who was abusive and controlling (but I couldn’t see it at the time).  Long story short, that relationship left me so broken and wounded, I didn’t want to live anymore and tried to end my life.   That was when God intervened, and my life began again with my new Dad.

It has been 27 years now, and I have come to know a God who loves me better than anyone on earth can.   He found me broken and hopeless, and He adopted me into His family and gave me a home.   He gave me security by showing me time and time again that I can never do anything to push Him away.  He taught me much about life and love.  He taught me to forgive, first myself and then others.    He healed the wounds in my heart.   All the sadness has been replaced with peace, and all my longing to be loved has been fulfilled.   I have a hope for a new start each and everyday.  I truly am a different person now than I was before this new life began.  I am who I am today because of Him and His love.

As a mother, I am thankful for the healing my Dad has done in me, so I can parent my children from wholeness instead of brokenness.  I hope I am modeling God’s gracious unconditional love to my children, and I hope that they too, will come to know God’s love as well as I do.  Hopefully I have been able to give them a good foundation so that they won’t become as vulnerable to others’ manipulation as I once had been.   And I am very thankful that my Dad has given my children a truly wonderful earthly father.  I am very glad that my children will be able to wholeheartedly say the words of this song to their daddy.

Thank You For Being My Dad

Music & Lyrics by Jon Barker
(You can contact Jon Barker through his website

A son rarely tells his Father 
How he really feels,
A handshake or a pat on the back 
is all that he reveals,
I’d like to right that wrong,
Here in this little song.

Thank you for shaping my life,
Thank you for teaching me all you can,
You are no ordinary man,
You make me everything I am.

Thank you for taking the time,
Thank you for showing me the way,
And thank you for being there
 when I need you,
Thank you for every single day.

Now I’ve been blessed with a son of my own,
Got my own bedtime stories to tell,
If I can raise him half as well
 as you raised me,
Guess I’ll be doing pretty well.

Thank you for your guiding hand,
Thank you for making my dreams come true,
You’re an extraordinary man,
And I hope you’re as proud of me
As I am proud of you.

Thank you for giving me life,
Thank you for showing me good from bad.
I guess I’m only really trying to say,
Thank you for being my Dad.

Even though the years drift away,

I never took the time just to say,
‘I love you, and I always have,
And thank you for being my Dad.’

‘Thank you for being my Dad.’
