Not everyone is fortunate to have a great father or father figure in their life. Personally, I feel extremely blessed. My dad has been there for me since day one.
He is the one that taught me about hard work. As a matter of fact, I thought hard work was one word for a long time since I never heard one without the other from his mouth.
My dad also taught me other great life lessons such as changing a tire, becoming an entrepreneur, and how to be strong – physically & mentally.
Most notably, my father taught me about character. Although I have made my fair share of mistakes, my father has been the one to show me what true compassion looks like, what unconditional love looks like by displaying it daily to my mother as well as my siblings, and how precious your word can be or not.
What baffles me the most about my dad, is his amount sacrifice. I don’t believe I will ever fully understand until perhaps when I am lucky enough to receive children of my own one day.
Any male can become the father of a child quite easily, but to be a dad, a papa, a daddy, a real, true father, that takes a special kind of soul.
Here’s to you, the dad’s that help groom boys into men and raise girls into outstanding women.
Thank you, Dad.
