    I have always admired my father.

    I have always been a daddy's girl. I would go to church with him even if there wasn't a service considering he was a preacher. I'd just kind of sit and watch him in his office. My father has always been a kind, goofy man. I guess that's where I got my sense of humor. He knows...

    My Father

    Today, I have spoken to my dad.  We have talked for a bit.  He was saying how much he loves my brothers & I.  This is what a good father is supposed to do or be, thinking about us the kids.  I guess, I'm fortunate to have heard is own words regarding the way he feels about...

    My Hero

    I am the person that I am today because of my dad. Words cannot describe what a nice man he is. He is the most generous, caring, accepting person I have ever met to this day. He is the complete opposite of my mother. rowing up, my mom and I would fight all the time. My dad...

    My father taught me everything.

    He taught me there are no limits. He taught me to rely on my own brain and instincts, never to rely on others and technology first, but to trust my own judgement first. He taught me to take care of myself and how to survive, not to have to depend on others to take care of me...

    Always True To Himself

    I can not say, growing up I was a great

    daughter. I was mean, but I have always loved my dad. He was always there for me, no matter what. He still is. Even though when I was younger, I did not understand why he did what he did or why he told me no to some things. Now that I am older and have my own kids, I can see...

    There are some things I dislike about him

    but that doesn't stop me from admiring him and looking up to him in every way possible. He's a great father, and more than that, great as a person. I know being a father, he does some things that I dont appreciate but then again, lets keep this in mind, I'm still a teenager and...

    My dad is single-handedly keeping my mother's

    parents' medical affairs in check as well as guiding my mother through her various speech problems and what I think is PTSD and depression. I really hope that I can be as patient, strong, and loving as he is someday.

    Mr. Mom

    My father was 63 when he adopted me when I was 2 months old. His wife had already passed so he raised me alone. Through the years he taught me many valuable lessons. The biggest one to me is that he taught me to learn at least a little bit about everything. This has come in handy...
