Fathers Day

Posted on September 04 2016


Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

I am so lucky to have my dad.

Sometimes I look at him and I am shocked. Shocked that his hair is white. Shocked that he needs glasses to see. Shocked that even though I am nearly 38 years old, I need him as much as I did when I was a tiny little girl.

He has always had a larger than life presence. Big, strong, dependable. Funny, grumpy, sarcastic, but there. For every milestone, occasion and special moment.

When I was a little girl I would tell people he was a wrestler. To me at the time that was the epitome of strength. He is a big guy, a tower of power. I would brag about his muscles as though he were a superhero.

I still brag about my dad. About his strength - but not because of his muscles. Now I like to share things that as an adult, I realise are so important.

He is kind. He is supportive. He is comforting. He is calming. Although I suspect I inherited my rage-like tendencies from him, he doesn't direct his anger at us.

He is an amazing Poppy to our grandkids. He demonstrates a patience that is amazing. Especially when the kids do stuff that we did as kids and got in trouble for - he has mellowed into a stereotypical grandpa. Teaching, guiding. Building them amazing things in his shed. Cooking pikelets on a sleepy Sunday afternoon.

I know I have shared with you his battle with cancer. The one he won. The battle that made us 4 kids love and appreciate him just that little bit more, but I just have to share my gratitude. That he is here, that he is alive. Someone to be celebrated and adored.

The older we get, the more people we lose. Of course it happens. It's life. But it's terrifying. The thought of losing my parents fills me with dread. When I hear of my beautiful friends and family losing their treasured parents, I cry. So much. Because I put myself in their position and imagine.

On Mother's Day this year I wrote about mums and the importance of our roles. How we don't always know what is right or wrong. Sometimes we stuff things up, sometimes we rock it. Being a dad is no different.

I know there are plenty of crap dads out there. But there are gazillions of brilliant ones. Stepdads, single dads, hard working dads. Dads that don't really know what the hell they are doing but are there anyway. Foster dads, adoptive dads. Stay at home dads. MumDads - those kickass women that are there fulfilling both roles for whatever reason. 

Today can be painful for many people. For those who have lost their beloved dad. For those who had a dad that wasn't around. You may never have known your dad and have a million unanswered questions. For dads that have lost children. Or cannot see their children but desperately want to. Today can highlight pain, loss and sadness.  

Being a parent, either mum or dad, is hard work. Rewarding? Yes! Satisfying? Sometimes! It can be really hard. I'll never forget when we had our first baby, I mumbled something to my husband about him being able to go to work for a break. He looked at me incredulously and said 'have you got any idea how hard it is to tear myself away? She's my baby too! I don't want to be at work, I want to be at home so I don't miss out'. I'd never thought of it like that. I was just jealous that he could have an escape and I couldn't. I know now in hindsight that there was a bit of PND in my reasoning.

Some men are capable of feeling that real bond with their kids. I was lucky enough to grow up with one of them, and I am lucky enough to be married to one of them.

So today I celebrate them.

Happy Father's Day

  • Agata Winston: May 24, 2024

    My husband had the habit of always texting and fixing dates with his old friends including his exes. I never thought there was a problem with such until he became emotionally withdrawn from me and started acting abnormal towards me and my daughter. At this point I knew I needed help urgently because I never wanted to loose him. Dr Isikolo came to my rescue and the problem was fixed. One my husband’s ex vowed to ensure she takes him from him and started manipulating him to abandon me and my daughter which would have eventually happened if Dr Isikolo didn’t stepped in to help me. Just after 48 hours after fixing the problem, everything became amazing between me and my husband and now he has apologized for everything and we are good again. Contact Dr Isikolo and believe he will surely fix that problem for you. Email him isikolosolutionhome@gmail.com or WhatsApp him on +2348133261196 and for info, you can review his page (https://isikolo-temple.com)

I was really going too much depressed, he left me with my kids and just ignored me constantly. I have begged him for forgiveness through text messages for him to come back home and the kids crying and miss their dad but he wont reply, I wanted him back desperately. we were in a very good couple and yet he just ignores me and get on with his life just like that, so i was looking for help after reading a post of Dr Kachi on the internet when i saw a lady name SHARRON testified that Dr Kachi cast a Pure love spell to stop divorce. and i also met with other, it was about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 24 hours at the end of her testimony she dropped his email, I contacted Dr Kachi via email and explained my problem to Dr Kachi and he told me what went wrong with my husband and how it happen, that he will restored my marriage back, and to my greatest surprise my Ex husband came back to me, and he apologized for his mistake, and for the pain he caused me and my children.

  • Rachel Frye: November 22, 2023

    Hello, my name is Rachel Frye and I want to give this testimony in respect of Dr. Odunga who made me win $2 Million Dollars in Lottery by matching the 5 numbers for me. I am happy to be out of financial debt and be able to help my family in these seasonal period of fun and cheer. I contacted Dr. Odunga through Whats-App (+2348167159012) when I told him to help me win the Mega Millions and He told me that it would be spiritually checked if I will win the Lottery. When he informed me that I will not be able to win the Jackpot but I will win huge amount in the lottery I was not completely sad but had great faith in him. I live in Freeland, Saginaw County, Michigan and I would say it was pretty hard to send him the money for the spell before he gave me the winning numbers to play. He sent me the numbers and I played. The next morning after the drawing, I matched the five white balls in the Aug. 4 drawing to win $1 million: 11-30-45-52-56. Thanks to the Megaplier X2, my prize was multiplied to $2 million. Thank You Dr Odunga for this wonderful experience with you. You too can contact Dr. Odunga at his Whats-App +2348167159012 or Email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com

But i never knew that winning was so easy with the help of Dr. OSE, until the day i meant the spell caster testimony online, which a lot of people has talked about that he is very powerful and has great powers in casting lottery spell, so i decided to give it a try. I emailed Dr. OSE and he did a spell and gave me the winning lottery special numbers 62, and co-incidentally I have be playing this same number for the past 23years without any winning, But believe me when I play the special number 62 this time and the draws were out i was the mega winner because the special 62 matched all five white-ball numbers as well as the Powerball, in the April 4 drawing to win the $70 million jackpot prize…… Dr. OSE, truly you are the best, with Dr. OSE you can will millions of money through lottery. i am a living testimony and so very happy i meant him, and i will forever be grateful to him…… you can Email him for your own winning special lottery numbers now oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com OR WHATSAPP him +2348136482342
