Remembering my father
It's fathers day. It's that special time when we celebrate fathers and the role they play in our lives and in society. I am blessed to have had a father who was every inch the kind of father anyone will wish to have. I had no doubt that he loved me because it showed in the way he looked at me with pride.
In his eyes, I was simply the best, most beautiful and smartest kid.
He played soccer with me, he showed me how to fix things around the house, he took me with him to choir practices. He taught me to love God and to be confident in the abilities God has given me. He taught me to love education and made sure I got the best.
It's been 5 years already since I lost him, but it's still like yesterday. In my mind, I'm still his little girl. Every thing I do, every decision I make, every milestone I achieve, I can still hear him cheering me on as he always did. I can still see him giving me the thumbs up, with that infectious smile that conveys pride and joy and true love of a father.
I know for a fact that he is still and will always be my #1 fan.
Happy fathers day to all the fathers! Have memorable fun times with your family!!
