The truth is I’ve never really known my dad. Growing up he was not really around (always working) and my mother was always mad at him. I wasn’t really around anyone who liked him as my brother and sister were long gone by the time I could really process anything.
So living with my dad these past few years have been an interesting experience. We’ve argued, we’ve laughed, and we’ve learned a lot about one another. I can see and feel how much he influenced me even though he wasn’t around all the time.
I’ll never undervalue the importance of a father in a child’s life again –
Moms are like the Sun but Dads are like the Earth.
