Fathers Day is a time to cel­e­brate those unsung heroes: the fathers. That par­ent who makes sure you know right from wrong and is always will­ing to get their hands dirty. The unwa­ver­ing gran­ite that you can always rely upon. Today how­ev­er, I’m not just here to talk about any old father, I’m of course here to dis­cuss MY father. So, with­out fur­ther ado, I give you 5 things I love about my father.


He’s Smart

If I ever have a ques­tion that needs answer­ing, I don’t go to the inter­net. I know that the cor­rect answer to my ques­tion is just a sim­ple phone call away. Like a true pro, he may not know every­thing, but his unre­lent­ing resolve to fig­ure it out is what real­ly makes him smart.

He’s Depend­able

When­ev­er I’ve been in a jam, whether it be a car acci­dent or just a bad day, I know my dad has my back. Just one call and he’s will­ing to drop every­thing to make sure that I can pull out of that sit­u­a­tion just fine. Just the sim­ple knowl­edge of that fact always makes me feel one heck of a lot safer every day of my life.

He Cares

It’s easy to get frus­trat­ed with some­one when they remind you of some­thing over and over again. Or if they pester you to get some­thing done that you just don’t feel like doing. Why do they do this? It’s because they’re push­ing you towards doing the right thing because they care about you. My father is con­stant­ly mak­ing sure I’m stay­ing on the right track and, at the risk of sound­ing a lit­tle self-right­eous, he’s done a pret­ty-darned good job.

He Shares

One thing that’s easy to for­get about your par­ents is that they had quite a bit of life expe­ri­ence before you came around. It would be easy for them to be hands off and just let you do your own thing, and they should to an extent, but there’s some­thing to be said about mak­ing an effort to share. You might not know you love some­thing or you might not know you can do some­thing until you’re pushed towards doing it your­self by some­one that’s already been there. So, don’t just shrug it off, lis­ten because he’s got some great things to show you.

He’s Mine

I only have to share with a select few peo­ple. If you want him, then you’ve got to go through me first, because I wouldn’t give him up for any­thing. He’s the best father in the world and I’m lucky to have him in my life. If I don’t say it enough, then know that I love you dad and there’s no one in the world I would rather have for my father on fathers day!
