This post has a bunch of family members in it; however, I want to focus on my dad. My dad has been in India for about 2 weeks now working his new job as technical director of NBA Academy India. Living at home without him is different, I'm used to coming home to see him asleep on the couch, but now he takes his naps on the other side of the earth. My dad has been the rock of my family since he and my mom got married. He is a very special man to me and many others; he has spent his career using his coaching platform to lead young athletes to The Lord, and he has always done his best to lead my family in the same way. My dad is the reason that I am a Christian man and he has helped shape me into the person I am today. I would be happy to be half the dad that he is someday. He is loving his job in India and I get to keep up with his life via his posts on Facebook and pictures he sends me of himself. I cannot express how much my dad means to me, and I am so thankful that he is the way that he is.
