I had a Dad.
I had a dad who taught me things,
Who wasn’t violent, but did punish me when needed, even though he hated to do so. He taught me right from wrong.
Who taught me how to be a man,
Taught me to do “man things” .
Taught me when to stand up and be a man.
Who was hard, when he had to be, gentle when needed.
Strong as a rock.
Never shirked his job, and never abandoned it.
I was lucky.
Not everyone is.
I know who may dad is, and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without his guidance.
Happy Fathers Day.
