Father’s Day, Part 1 of 3

Dear Father-in-Law,

I wanted to say something here about how lucky Raisin, Orange, and Apple are to have a grandfather who grew up in a different country. They’ll get to grow up with easy access to two very different cultures, and I think that’s such a blessing.

But I realized that’s not really what I want to get across in this letter. The biggest blessing in having you for a grandfather to my children is you. I have met very few people in my life who have such incredible devotion to their faith, their family, and their work. Most people sacrifice everything in pursuit of one of the three; I think it’s amazing the way you’ve been able to balance them all — to unite them all.

In that, and in so many other ways, you are a wonderful example to me and to your grandchildren. They love you, and so do I.

Happy Father’s Day.
