    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...

    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.

    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 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...

    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 Beloved Daddy
