I’m thankful for being a father. Like other dads out there, I love my kids and am proud of everything they’ve already accomplished in their young lives. I’ve been very fortunate. Having worked from home for the last 12 years, I’ve had the unique pleasure of raising my kids: being there to watch their first steps, hear their first words, and feed them their first real food. People often ask how I’m able to balance working from home and raising two kids – it’s hard, but it’s the hardest job I’ve ever loved. As they grow up, I realize how fast it happens so I try to enjoy everything with them – every moment that brings laughter, surprise, or sometimes sadness. I’ve tried to mentally capture all those special times. And while there have been certain choices I’ve made in my career to witness all these special moments, I wouldn’t trade them for the world. I’d do it all over again. Although this day is meant to give fathers their special day, I can’t help but think that I’ve already been given much more. I’m the one that should be thankful for having had the opportunity to be a dad.
