My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

June 20, 2010 “Dad’s Day”

June 20, 2010   “Dad’s Day”

It’s Father’s Day, but I’m a Dad.  My father has been my Dad all my life; he has always just been…Dad, except when I was hurt or sick, then he was Daddy.  My Dad is the one I have always looked to for guidance and support, and he has never failed.  My Dad taught me honesty and hard work.  He has shown me patience, mercy, and faith.  He has always loved me and been there when I called…every time.  He brought me up in a good way…he Loved me.  He always encouraged me to be me; to make my own decisions, and he supported me in them.  But, what I thank him for most of all…he taught me how to be a Dad too.
I am my daughter’s Dad, always have been.  My head looks up and my chest swells when I hear Traci call me Dad. I don’t often well with tears, but it’s okay for Dads to cry, because when she says…Dad, it means only one person in the world…Me!  She makes me a Dad, and a damned proud one!  She will always call me Dad, I hope, and for the same reasons I will always call Kenneth Harris…Dad.

I love my Dad.
I love my Daughter.
I love being a Son.
I love being a Dad.
