A Message for Our All-Time Hero

June 9, 2016

A Father Is:

There in every memory
See his love and care
Strength and hands to count on
Freely he does share
Provider, toil so faithfully
To make our dreams come true
Give strong and tender discipline
Though it is hard to do
A Father is God's chosen one
To lead the family
And point it to His will for life
Of love and harmony...
- Sue Skeen 

Every Father’s Day, I take time to reminisce those precious moments with my dad. When I was young, he was always my hero – the man I always looked up to because he was invincible. Broken toy? No problem, he can fix it. Computer issues? No problem, he resolved it. Stranded after partying too late? He’ll be there to the rescue.

As I grew older, I thought my wisdom exceeded my dad’s and though his principles were so dated and overly strict. Why is he nagging me again? Why is he asking so many questions? Why won’t he just let me be? But even in my rebellion, he continued to shower me with patience, love and care, and was always the enabler to my whims.

We’d go on midnight McDonald’s runs because I was craving fries and soft serve (it’s a heavenly combo). He’d cook for me at obscure hours because I mentioned being peckish. Most unexpectedly from my impression of him being a manly man, he would go shopping with me whenever I’m in town to visit and show genuine interest when we go on these shopping trips.

Yes, we get into arguments more often than not, we disagree on many things and we don’t talk often, but I know he will always be there for me when I’m in a pinch. My dad has always been my hero and role model for what unconditional love is, and I can only hope to be half as selfless as he has been!

If you haven’t talked to your dad in a while, pick up the phone and give him a call. Catch up with him and ask him out for a date. Maybe he’s been waiting for you to ask him to go on that shopping trip with you all along.


To all Dads out there, we wish you a very Happy Father's Day!
