Mama OWL Blog: This Man Is My Hero

This Man Is My Hero

Thursday, 7 March 2013

Today is the birthday of my hero.

The man by which all other men are measured, the man who has been there for me throughout my life - the good times and the bad. This man showed me what a man should be, how he should act, how he should shoulder his responsibilities.

This man helped teach me right from wrong, even when I ignored him and did wrong anyway. This man has got out of bed and worked every day of his life for what he has - even when he was ill, even after bereavement, he got up and he went to work & he did what he had to do to provide for his wife and family.

This man held me as I sobbed onto his shoulder after the death of a friend. This man walked me down the aisle the day I married my wonderful Mister. This man eagerly visited the hospital to meet each of his grandchildren after their births.

This man turns 61 today. This man is my hero. This man is my Dad.

You are the best Dad that I ever could have wished for, and if being raised by a wonderful man isn't a reason to be cheerful, I don't know what is.
I might not have always been the best daughter, but you have always been the best Father, and I owe everything to you and Mum.

Happy Birthday Daddy. You are truly one in a million and I love you with all of my heart.
