Are Fathers Really that Important?
I can’t tell you what is was like to not have a dad in my life. The dad that was chosen for me made a chose to be present.
He chose to take me on fishing trips where most of the time he was feeding me crackers, or getting my line unstuuck out of a tree, or taking the fish off that I was to scared to touch.
He took me swimming where he would throw his hard earned coins into a pool and have me retrieve them. He not only taught me the important skill of swimming, but that to get money you must earn it.
He coached my softball team where he cheered me on, taught me multiple life lessons.
He watched tv, football games, played outside and taught me so much more.
He loved my mom. I watched them care for each other, and I watch him still today work and provide for her.
He took me to church where he taught me to love Jesus. He loved me so much and pointed me to Christ. He still to this day serves Christ.
I am assured that right now if I called him from the other side of the world that not only would he answet, but he would come and get me if I asked him to.
If you know my dad, you love him. He is an incredible person, and I do believe that having him in my life is important. Along with my mother he shaped who I am.
Happy Father’s Day Poppa!
