My indestructible Dad

My Dad is strong.
He does not get sick.
He does not get hurt.
Nothing bad ever happens to him.

He doesn’t age. He doesn’t have gray hair and he never has ailments. He doesn’t get pain in his chest, numbness and loss of feeling in his arm and he never has constant headaches.

He’s as strong as an ox. He doesn’t need doctors to stick him or poke him or examine him.

He’s healthy.

He’s always going to be around. He’s never going to not be there because he’s my Dad, and he’d never die.

And he knows that.
I’ll never not have my Dad around to hear his jokes.
I’ll never not have him around to watch movies with.
I’ll never not have him around for all those little moments in my life.

I may get older but my Dad won’t.
He’s indestructible.

I love you, Dad.

I saw your pics on IG and I hope your Dad is doing better. I know what you mean by this post... I feel the same way about my Dad. He's the core of our family and it's just never going to happen.

Hi there.......you need to put a disclaimer on your posts because a girl can get electrocuted as the tears spill onto the keyboard. Your words touched me in a way I just cannot begin to explain. My dad is really sick and watching this indestructible man dwindle to nothingness is heartbreaking. I take each moment I can and spend it with him because the reality is one of these days I am not going to have his strong arms to hold me in the eye of a storm, I wont have his words of wisdom when my own fail me and I wont have anyone who's truly got my back!! I am a daddy's girl and proud of it!!!
