I've been really missing my father lately. I sketched this up tonight because it's a way of helping me to remember. And because I wanted to show him that I'm still going for my dreams, no matter how impossible they seem right now for me to reach. My dad believed in me more than anybody else, and because of that I'm able to find the courage that I need to keep trying. So here's to you Dad; there's not a single day that goes by that I don't miss you. I love you, more than anybody could ever know.
