On this Father’s Day, I want to tell my dad that I’m thankful for all the times that we get to dance together. It’s always been significant to me that we have this mild, swing-style country dance that we seem to have mastered over my nearly 28 years.
I adore every chance I get to dance with him, and while I’ve said recently that I’m my mother’s daughter, I most definitely am growing to be more of my father every day as well. From being accident-prone and sort of clumsy to our need to be in control (and right, most of the time), I value the lessons he has taught me over the years. We sometimes butt heads (and it’s only because we’re both right), but I love my dad and I hope we are dancing together for years to come. Happy Father’s Day, Dad!
