MY DAD, MY HERO

MY DAD, THE SOFT-SPOKEN MAN, WHO WORKED LONG HOURS TO SUPPORT HIS FAMILY. THE MAN WHO DEDICATED HIS LIFE TO HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN.THE ONE WHO WOULD GO THE EXTRA MILE, WHO ALWAYS SAID FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE EVERYTHING, WHO TAUGHT ME GIVING WAS BETTER THEN RECEIVING,TREAT OTHERS THE WAY YOU WANT TO BE TREATED, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YOU SET OUT TO DO.IT DIDNT MATTER, BIG OR SMALL, DOWN TO ZERBITS IN THE EAR, NIGHTS OF PLAYING AGGERVATION, TO DRIVING THE TRATOR, BOY DID I LOVE TO DRIVE THE TRACTOR! OR SIMPLY CUTTING WOOD, HE WAS THERE, WITH OPEN OPENS! HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE OLD SAYING, "DADDY'S LITTLE GIRL"? WELL I FIT THE BILL! AS FAR BACK AS I CAN REMEMBER I ALWAYS THOUGHT MY DAD COULD FIX ANYTHING-FROM SCRAPED KNEES, TO MENDING BROKEN HEARTS, ALL I HAD TO DO WAS TELL DAD HE COULD FIX IT-HE WAS MY DAD! IN 1990, MY DAD GOT KIDNEY CANCER, THEY HAD TO TAKE ONE KIDNEY AND FOUND CANCER IN THE OTHER, WAIT! STOP! THIS WAS DAD, HE WAS SUPPOSE TO FIX EVERYTHING, THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING!NOT TO MY DAD, I NEED MY DAD! HE FOUGHT BACK AND IM PROUD TO SAYHE OVERCOME THE BATTLE, AND JUST RECEIVED HIS 20TH YEAR METAL OF BEING CANCER FREE! MY DAD IS NOT ONLY MY HERO, HIS MY BEST FRIEND. HIS A MAN OF DIGINITY, WISDOM, TRUE TO HIS WORD, HONORABLE, ADMIRED, AND RESPECTED BY MANY BUT MOST OF ALL HIS THE MAN I'M PROUD TO CALL DAD! HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DAD- I LOVE YOU!
