How do you describe your father?

Post by Donnavila Marie01 » 13 Aug 2017, 01:24

When Max and Godfredo were teenagers, Max was proud of his father because he was a loving father and he considered the father of Godfredo as a nasty father. How do you describe your father? How do you describe an ideal father?

My father is thoughtful and caring. He makes sure that I'm in good hands for I travel to different places. He is there to check me, what's going on. :tiphat:

My father has his flaws but he is still my dad and I love him very much.

Not very smart, fiercely loyal, stubborn, funny, an addict, dedicated to his children succeeding, flawed, a hard worker. A simple, complicated man

My father is a very smart person. He loves reading and analyzing things. He's always trying to increase his vocabulary through reading. When he learns something is done in a peculiar form, do not dare to do it otherwise. He likes to follow instructions, but he is open minded. He likes to talk to his children and give us advice. He's a marvelous dad!

My father is a sperm donor... he was around for a couple of years in my life and then, well he disappeared. For reasons between my mom and him. But over the years I've reached out to him and have realised he's the best liar I've ever met, he can cry on cue, and the man could gamble the socks off his feet.
Wondeful daddy huh..? i'm glad some of you have had great, thoughtful fathers. Mine just wasn't or should i say isn't one
Between the pages of a book is a lovely place to be...

I never had one and I only wish I had someone carrying and wise to protect and support, like some of you mentioned. However I do now have a role model, who is everything to me and he shows the love, the father would have given and more. I can now realise how secure the real man can make you feel, help you become a beautiful woman.

That's great. we desire to be the image of our own fathers. There will come a time that a child will create his own legacy not because he is the shadow of his father but because of the greatness that he has planted in his son.

Thanks Marie, any chance I get to celebrate a strong man like my dad, is well spent.

My dad is the most humble, patient, and forgiving person I know. He is the reason why I loved reading books because I would always see a book in his bag even when I never see him read them.
