Ode to a Chosen Father

Father extraordinaire

Having suffered the absence of paternal connection due to profession and priorities, I chose wisely & directed distinctly so that my children might know what I recognize here about their father (with the help of the alphabet. X?)

A-accepting, allowing
B-bemused
C-caring, compassionate, considerate, champion, capable
D-deeply devoted
E-embracing, expressive, encourager, EATER
F-feeling, dream fulfiller, fortune hunter
G-good
H-hearted
I-inquisitive, insightful
J-Jack of All Trades
K-KIND
L-loving
M-music lover
N-niece & nephew doter
O-open
P-proud, protective, patient, playful
Q-quiet
R-reserved
S-sensitive, soulful, strong, skilled
T-tree lover
U-UNCLE, understanding
V-vehicle lover (this one not so important to me)
W-washer player (see above), willing
X-
Y-yearning, yielding
Z-zesting

With gratitude for the qualities he shares.
For you Casey, additional alphabets are needed.
