What is a Father to me!

Blessed indeed is a man who hears many voices call him “ Father, Papa, Daddy” , for it is not always blood and flesh which create two persons father and son. It is the heart, the comfort, the indefinable comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor evaluate words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sieve them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away. Those are what make two people father and son.

There are a lot of person who spawned life into a mother’s womb and give part to make a fetus whole and sprang to life. However, not many of them have guided these tiny hands in facing the ups and downs of life. A real father is a guiding hand on the child’s small shoulders that would remain forever. He is like the boulder of a home that causes the structure to be built up and remain standing with the billows of the winds and storms of times. There's something like a line of gold thread running through a man's words when he talks to his daughter or son, and gradually over the years it gets to be long enough for you to pick up in your hands and weave into a cloth that feels like love itself.

I've had a hard life, but my hardships are nothing against the hardships that my father went through in order to get me to where I started. My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me. If he was just a person who seeded me but was never there for me I would never consider him a Father. However, he not just was my biological originator; He was a father to me. I am what I am because of my father. He taught me to be strong. That priceless lesson was more overcoming when I faced the dreaded pages of my past. He taught me how to stand and overcome. Though he passed away and went ahead of us, his love and support would always live and continue to be my guiding light.

It is so blessed of me to have father like him. I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection. I pity for the children that came after me who never had a real father. It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father. Any fool can be a Father, but it takes a real man to be a Papa!!

To you Papa wherever you are now, though you may not be a perfect person in the eyes of many, to me you are the most wonderful Father I ever have. Happy Father’s day to you.

To all the fathers in this world, Happy Father’s day to all of you. Remember this constantly: Better to be driven out from among men than to be disliked by your children!
