My Dad

Jul 28, 2011

Today’s issue is all about parents, and if I absolutely had to describe them in just one word, I would say “amazing”, though that word alone certainly doesn’t do them justice. We don’t get to pick who our parents are, but they don’t get to choose us either, and yet, they still love us unconditionally, quirks and all. They provide us with food, shelter, a family to belong to, and most important of all, love.

There are two people who make up the parental unit: the mom, and the dad. Today, I will be focusing on dads, because a couple of days ago, my dad celebrated his birthday.

Dads are people we can always count on to have our backs no matter what, have great advice whenever we need it, and they are also brilliant role-models to look up to.

One of the many reasons why dads are important are because they are the head of the family, and are traditionally the sole breadwinners of the family, though it must be added the nowadays, mothers are bring in an income too. They go out early in the mornings, and often come home late at night so that we can receive a good education and lead a good life. They work hard for their families not because they have to or because someone is forcing them, but simply because they love us, and I think that in itself is case for a very big thank you.

I’m taking this opportunity here to thank my own dad for everything that he has done for my mom and I, and to express how much I love him. Ask anyone, and they will tell you that their dad is the best dad in the world, and I would tell you the same thing. My dad is, without a doubt, the most charismatic, charming, humble and generous man I know, and also the most God-fearing. He is a person with a great sense of humor, and has a gregarious personality that has garnered him a lot of friends. He is an amazing man whom I love very much, and I’m proud to call him my dad.

Even though today may not be a special day for your dad, please take the time to tell him how much he means to you.
