“We’re very blessed for having him..” My mom said while looking at the man he married twenty years ago. I gave her a smile to show that I agree with what she just said about my dad.
My mom, bro and I always thank God for giving us such a wonderful man who takes good care of our family. He is the kind of father every son and every daughter in this world would want to have. He is the kind of husband every wife would love to live with. He is the man who never gets tired of doing everything to keep his family happy. He is the person our family would not want to lose.
For my 16 years and 11 months of being a member of our family, I never felt jealous to any other families. I never heard myself say, “I wish he was not my dad..” nor “I hate him because he is my dad..” Instead, I kept saying to myself, “Algene, you’re lucky enough to have a good father.. err, actually, the best dad..”
My dad never gets tired of reminding me of how blessed I am to be a part of a happy family. Because of him, I can stand tall in crowds feeling complete. He assures me that I have nothing to fear for he loves me..
And I thank him for those things..
He has done many good things for us and I’m sure, he’ll always do. He is a good husband to my mom and a good father to me and to my brother. He provides us not only with the things we need but also with the things we want. He never let us feel abandoned. He is always there for our family – always there to support us.
It’s good to have him in my life. God has given me the best man I could ever ask for.
