It wasn’t until after our daughter was born that I realized exactly why fathers cry at their daughters’ weddings. I was rocking our daughter late one night as the rest of the world slept and I realized that one day as we walked down an aisle together I would be remembering this moment. I would be remembering her tiny fingers wrapped around my neck, her eyes peacefully closed, the constant rhythm of her little chest breathing against mine. And that’s why I’ll be crying.

So happy Father’s Day to all of you, and especially to all of the fathers and daughters. We love you!
