Tom/Dad, You walked into my life when I needed you most. You were my father as a teen and groomed me into adulthood, helping me navigate through college, grad school, and the working world. You and mom were my rocks and my biggest encouragers, always telling me I could when I believed I couldn’t. – When I told you I wanted to be a reporter in LA, but I was scared of failing, you said, “You can do it. Your mom and I will be here and support you along the way.” You told me I was different than others – in a good way – and said, “Libs, find your passion and write down your goals. You’ll figure it out. You’ll have to make some sacrifices along the way, but as long as you persevere and never give up, you’ll get there. And trust me, when you do, all that work will be worth it.” You were right. – For over two decades, as a family of five, we journeyed to islands in the Far Pacific, across Europe, over to the Middle East and Down Under. You dug for dinosaurs alongside noted archeologists, you chased total solar eclipses around the world, and went globetrotting across continents, fitting in as many F1 races as you could. You loved driving fast cars with your 60s rock or classical music blaring in the background. You loved living, but you also loved working and I will always remember how proud you were to own businesses that positively impacted others’ lives. You were the hardest working man I’ve ever known and somehow, you figured out that perfect work-life balance that I’m still striving to mirror today. – The way you loved and celebrated Mom showed me what it’s like when a man truly loves a woman. – You had such a beautiful mind and knew everything about science, astronomy, and math. I was always shocked and thankful when you could explain biostatistics or thermodynamics better than my professors. – You taught me to look up at the moon and the stars every night and now it’s so comforting to star at the sky and know you’re flying around with mom by your side, smiling and laughing…happy, healthy and free. – I’m so thankful that I can still feel your presence and love from beyond. I miss you, I love you, and think of you every damn day. – #happyfathersday #family

I finally understand the phrase… ”When you know, you know.” Here’s what I’ve learned since I found my man: – When it’s the right person, there are no games. No questions of whether he loves you. – You feel at home, safe, and secure. – You don’t have to pretend you’re perfect and there’s no reason to hide your idiosyncrasies because he doesn’t judge. – You’re comfortable in your own skin. – He loves you unconditionally and keeps no record of wrongs. – The tough times aren’t as tough since he’s in your life. – There is no forcing, everything just flows. – The second you leave him to go to work, run errands or do your thing, you miss him. Yup, this time around is different and it’s forever. Te amo de aquí hasta la luna mas el infinito @luisstrohmeier ???
