    Lesson

    I want to give you the world. So you can be all that you can be. I can. I thought. But I can't teach you happiness unless I am happy myself. I can't teach you how to be a good friend unless I spend time being one. I can't teach you responsibility unless I hold myself accountable...

    2 Hours With You/166 Hours Without You

    And as the weight of the world crashes down upon me, My arms buckle, my back breaks, my knees give way As I look to the skies and curse your name. I take a step back, look down at my side, I see one standing there, his hand in mine.   I look back to the skies with remorseful...

    I am a father of wonderful kids.

    My oldest son is 19 in college now studying to be an attorney. My daughter is a senior in high school and will be playing softball in college next year. My youngest son is 14 and will be a high school freshman next year. I'm so proud of all three of them.

    I have 3 adult kids. My middle daughter is the

    reason I am here today. Not just on EP but in the world. 3 years ago I was ready to clock out. I was unemployed, and facing a divorce. I had been planning my exit for several weeks. My daughter texted me and told me she loved me. I changed my mind. I owe her my life.

    There's nothing better

    than being a father. My son is four years old, and he's very intelligent and talented. He loves to draw, just like me. His drawings are getting much better. He's also crazy about football. Most of the time he can be found wearing his University of Michigan helmet and carrying a...

    Not A Father But A Single Mother

    Just wish I knew what to do.  I am sure my son is missing out on some things not having a father.  Sometimes I google Father for Rent or Father for Hire to see if there is such a thing.  Sometimes I am mad at myself for letting this happen to me.  I love my son but I know he...

    It'd be a blessing to have a child.

    I'd prove to everyone I'm not going to be a bad father like mine. I'll have something worth fighting for and I'll love that child more than myself. One day, I'll be the best father possible.

    Why Is It So Important For A Father To Be In His Daughter's Life?

    THIS QUESTION WAS ASKED OF ME BY A YOUNG WOMAN: Why is it so important for a father to be in his daughter's life? After standing there for a few minutes with my jaw hanging down, I finally answered: This question just blows me away. Seriously. You don't know? I don't know the...

    ....of 2 teen sons, 16

    I just watched my toddler son fall asleep in

    his high chair. It was the funniest thing to see, especially since he never sleeps randomly like that. I carried him to bed. I guess bed time is early tonight.

    So the youngest runs home from college

    Of two sons, ages 3 and 10.

    They are my center, the axis upon which everything in my life turns. I recall once being frightened, somehow, of becoming a father. It turned out to be the best damn life event that had happened to me.

    Thanks to Harry Chapin For Making Me a Better Father

    I have always been touched by the Harry Chapin son “Cat’s in the cradle”. For those of you who don’t know the song, the storyline is about a father who was so busy with his career that he failed to make his child a priority. In his later years, when he wanted to spend...

    I am a father not just a ***** provider.

    I've changed diapers, sat in emergency rooms, stayed up late helping with home work, lost sleep worrying, provided a shoulder to cry on, laughed with them, cried with them, prayed for them, and the best word I'm called is when they say "dad". I love my kids.

    Best thing about being a dad - seeing your kid

    grow. Not always the best times when they are changing and you're both trying to figure things out, but my experiences have been pretty darn awesome. Awkward, crazy and challenging, but also happy and noteworthy and a learning experience.
