    Dad

    Here Is My Story About My Dad...

    Needs, Not Wants...

    Looking back at my childhood, I can see how my Dad was there when I truly needed him, but not always when I wanted him. I remember all the nights he spent sitting at work while my mother tucked me into bed. The special events he missed purely because he would rather sit on his...
