A Fathers Day Salute to my Dad
Today’s post is a little different. I want to pay tribute to my dad in the run-up to fathers day, so I’m writing about why he is such a fantastic dad & grandad.
My dad is always there
My father is a quiet man. A man of few words. I think my brother will agree that if you want a long chat on the phone, then you call mum. But my dad is always, always there when I need him. When I needed a lift home from the pub as a teenager. When I was heartbroken. When I had the baby blues and hadn’t slept in days. When I ran out of money at university. When I couldn’t put up my shelves. When I was terrified of falling downstairs on my wedding day.
He might not be a big talker, but he is always there.
And because of this, I have never doubted that he loves me.
My dad is a brilliant grandad
My boys adore their Grandad. He helps them construct elaborate and complex Lego designs. He explains cogs, gears, electricity & sound. He answers endless questions about flora and fauna. He carries them on his shoulders. He takes them on adventures. He built them a go-kart from scratch. When they (regularly & inevitably) hurt themselves, he gives them a big hug and some germolene instead of telling them to ‘man-up’. He asks them questions and he listens to their answers.
And because of this, they know that Grandad loves them.
My dad is a fantastic male role model
My dad is the benchmark by which I compare other men. He is calm. He is respectful. He is intelligent & talented. He is fun and very funny in his dry way. He dances. He loves my mum. He respects and cares for her. He is responsible. He is kind.
He is a gentleman.
And because I saw these qualities in my dad, I sought them in my husband.
And I know that he now loves me too and is also a wonderful father.
So thank you dad for all that you do for our family.
