    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 love my father very much,

    this is something that I've never admitted to before. I know that I've written stories about him before in which I express how much I hate him for the way that he's been treating me lately, & for that I am completely ashamed. I've come to realize I'm the one who's been in the...

    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...

    After my brother died of cancer,

    my family fell apart. My mother went into a deep depression and left. My father was left with my brother and I. He started drinking heavily and soon stopped taking care of us. We were starved, beaten, neglected, and abused. After a year or so, the rest if the family found out...

    My Father

    I have just noticed that I've been denying this fact for a while, maybe I just grew up a little or I was just a little blind to see it. Anyways the truth is and here it's coming, I love my father. One of closest friends once told me that my dad really loves me and someday I'll...

    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...

    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 love my daddy so much (no not kbg). I can't even describe how amazing he is. Even though I love my mom equally (uh) I've always had mommy issues, but with my dad all those issues disappear. He has this way of making everything better when my world is falling apart. Most of the...

    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...

    but my Dad is really such a great guy and I love him so much. My Mom and Dad had me when they were really young. Dad was 22 and Mom was 17. Yeah I know. They were too young for kids I think and it definitely showed in my Mom who eventually split and now they are divorced. My...

    That's how my weekends started most of my life and still do sometimes now. My father has shown and taught me almost everything I know. I guess I was kind of a Tom boy because I can fish, shoot a pistol, ride a Harley and throw a ball without embarrassing myself. Dad knows when...

    To all of you with loving dads,

    never forget how lucky you are. My dad never cared about me thanks to me being a girl, so he left when I was 2. I wish I could say I miss him but I don't. I just miss having a dad.

    In many ways he's a stereotypical manly man,

    a guy's guy, the star quarterback of his high school, a drill sergeant in the army when I was growing up. But me and my little brother Andy knew him as the most patient and loving father in existence. He was someone who rarely yelled at us, when we made mistakes he was the kind...

    That moment when you experience someone's life.

    You experience their relationship with their father is terrible because that person's dad is a jackass! For real! But it made me realise that I'm really lucky to have the dad I have right now. So blessed and thankful!
