I was feeling ALL the emotions yesterday, as my birthday fell on Father’s Day yet again. My dad, John Kofi Badu Asante, Sr., passed 23 years ago.
The older I get, the more I wish he were around to give sound advice, see my future family, and talk about the excitement of Ghana’s return to the World Cup. Although I miss him everyday, I know he’d want me to be as happy as he was in this photo, showing me off to my godmother and sister during my baptism many moons ago.
And I truly feel that with all the birthday love I received from friends and family through calls, texts, messages, tweets, songs, and hugs, that level of happiness was achieved.
