Another Father’s day is looming closer. I have been thinking of what i can get my dad, what will show how much i love him etc. Thinking about gifts and what not has made me realize yet again how much i adore my dad. He’s goofy and wears his slippers almost everywhere, but he is also hardworking and a man of integrity. I’m sure he wanted a boy but instead he was left with three girls. I still joke with people and tell them how handy I can be because my father though of us a sons 🙂
It’s not entirely true, he just empowered us with skills to do things for ourselves, whether it would be drilling a hole or changing a plug or sawing new skirting boards. My dad spoilt us as kids with a cup of coffee in bed every morning to wake us up. It was definitely needed when I was a small child but when I got older I would wake up, hear his footsteps shuffling towards the kitchen, hear the kettle and cups, and wait patiently for my coffee in bed. As an adult I slept over at my parent’s house a few times and would get up early, go say good morning to him in the lounge and he would still get up and go make me coffee.
It might seem like just coffee to some, but for me it was just so much more, and still is. He is a great dad and an amazing granddad 🙂
Sigh… it’s so difficult to think of gifts that can express that “squeeze-him-to-death” kind of love. I suppose at the end of the day the gifts don’t matter as much as the hugs and kisses.
I hope you all have a wonderful father’s day with your dad’s, and Happy Father’s day to all the dad’s out there. Hope you get abundant hugs and kisses. 🙂
