I Love My Dad

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,432 People

    Well this past week I had a tough conversation

    with my Dad. His health is failing very fast. Heart, kidney and cancer. We just buried my sister. Trying to get things from him...personal information has not always been easy. He's more of a talk about the weather kind of a guy. He loves to hear about how my 130 pound puppy...

    My dad and I started our journey together on a

    pretty rocky road...but that's an entirely different story. I just answered an EP question about the direction you place the toilet paper (over or under)...and the correct answer, of course, is over. I've also been talking with a friend about being young and thinking our...

    Thank You Daddy

    Dad was the new boy in the neighborhood and he would always watch out the window when mom would pass by. He was too shy to say Hi so he would just watch her. Mom was going to the best private school in town and I'm pretty sure she thought she was all that, like she does right now...

    Lately, I have been hugging my dad a lot.

    I don't know why. I love him, yeah I do... But I have never been that hm expressive towards people even if it's my family... But I love papa's strong arms! When he hugs me back, he tightens me in his arms and he kisses my head... I love him! :)

    When the home health care nurse came out to the

    house to assess my dad, one of the first things she said was, “He needs a lift chair. One that will elevate his legs to help relieve the swelling and doesn’t strain his heart when he tries to get up.”My dad has always been a veritable bear… so physically...

    I didn't always use to get along with my dad

    the greatest. He was a little rough on the edges. He has changed so much, though. I tear up just thinking about him! I'm truly blessed to have such a loving and caring dad. I don't even want to think about life here without him. But at least he'll get to meet his grand babies...

    PART ONE . . . Tonight,

    I will drive to my Dad’s. The drive is only about two hours—an easy drive in good weather. Boring. Ugly. But easy. In the winter, it’s prohibitive. I live in an area where winter is beautiful… and dangerous. The cold—the snow—the wind… So, travel to Dad’s in the...

    and I want to ask my dad if I can have 4 friends over for a sleepover (at the weekend). I've been staying out of trouble and doing stuff like making him tea and stuff and he's quite suspicious about it!!! Not sure when I should ask him or what's the best way. I don't want him to...

    I Love My Dad...

    When my mom passed away I hardly even two years old, so I don't remember anything about her. At the same time my dad had just graduated with his law degree from Harvard. It has only been me and my dad for years, and I respect him greatly. He had to juggle being a young lawyer...

    Lately I've been forcing my dad into longer

    hugs. He gives nice hugs, but he always tries to let go after a few seconds. I'm just like "nope, not letting go!" xD I just want to cherish the moment. There will come a time when I won't be able to hug him anymore and I want to remember his hugs. :')

    My Daddy

    He didn't really want a baby. But my mother finally won him over to the idea after five years of marriage. When I was born, he called his sister in Texas, and was crying unintelligibly. She thought something had happened to Mama. Did something happen to Cindy? (No) Oh no...the...

    I wore my hair in a braid today.

    My dad saw my hair, pointed, and said, "Hey, Swiss Miss!" Don't worry; I gave him a very quizzical look. What the heck did that even mean? "Um, you mean a braid?" I laughed. "No, you know that brand of hot chocolate called Swiss Miss? There was a girl on the package who had...

    My sisters do alittle also but not like the way I do at all. He always had me working with him as a kid and I was his favorite. My dad still does this as a way to show how hard it is to make money, even though I already know that. He's one of the hardest working people I know...

    Proud To Call Him My Dad.

    Every one has different definitions and opinions of what a Dad should be or do. A few months ago I was in a really tough place, weed addiction, alcohol, self harm and meaningless sex, on a daily basis. Didn't even know who I was or what I was doing. I met this man on here, didn...

    I have always been a Daddy's girl.

    Growing up I preferred to be with my Pops on the tractor planting a new crop or in the ditches full of mud helping him irrigate rather than playing dress-up with my sister. After a long days work with him, in the summer, we'd go to the fishing hole behind the house and...
