My Dad has always been there for me ever since my Mom left us when I was 5 years old. I can recall that night when there was an argument and then we never really saw her again. How could a Mother leave her child like that; how cold of her?
Anyhow, I know the reason my Mom left my Dad, but to me she was a poor excuse for a Mother. Everything that I’ve ever gone through my Dad has been there to help me. I’m an adult now; 22 years old. Life was tough for me back in middle school and high school when I gained weight. People would tease me, and call me names, and my Dad would always be the person I’d go to, and he would give me encouraging advice and words of wisdom that help me to not let these kids ruin my ego.
Today all because of my Dad I have become a successful person; I no longer let anyone phase me with hatred or anything negative. I am able to be happy and surround myself by positive people. Thanks Dad for all you have done for me; you truly are my hero!
