OK, let me start by saying this Sunday, this is EXACTLY what I expect to be sitting at my table, and if you tell my nutritionist, I'll deny every slice of bacon!
Let's start off with some bacon, I mean basic's here about Fathers Day. This is for those men who have stuck around, who have been an influence in their children's life, who have set the proper example. As much love and respect as I have for them, this is NOT for single mother's, this is not for "Pet Parents", or anyone else, this is for Dad's.
What is a Dad? A Dad is on the surface, someone who tells Dad Jokes, a Dad is someone who is able to burn down the neighborhood but still wind up with a hamburger that is raw in the middle, a Dad is someone that can save the $10 assembly fee at WalMart on a bicycle and spend the next 8 hours teaching the whole family how to swear in 7 different languages at 2am. Underneath it isn't that hard to be a Dad, friggin' just show up. Show up to the ball game, show up to the swim lesson, show up when someone is sick and needs a cloth on their forehead, just show up. I'm not going to talk about dead beat Dad's, we know who they are, and they are usually the one's talking the most shit. We are going to focus on those that show up.
My Dad and I never seemed in this life to see eye to eye. We just couldn't get along, and I could write books on what lessons I learned on how not to be a father from him, but what I did learn was that no matter what the situation, no matter what the problem, no matter what time, my Dad would show up. He was ALWAYS there. Now he had a way of screwing things up like no other, but he was ALWAYS there to do so, and I will always remember that no matter how broken and discouraged I was, my Dad would always be there to help pick up the pieces. Whether I was hurt, or sick, or in trouble, I always knew; good or bad, that my Dad would be there.
I know I am not the worlds greatest Dad, quite far from it, and I missed a lot of my kids younger years being deployed in the Navy, but when I was there, I was there, and now that I am no longer in the service, I know beyond a shadow of doubt that my kids know they can count on me, whether they are sick, or hurt, or in trouble, I will always be there. Why? Because Dad's show up! I am proud to say that my kids are not afraid to wake me up for nightmares, or sickness, or stress, or worry. I am proud to say that when my kids need someone to talk to about any topic they come to me right after they are done with their mother, LOL, but seriously I know they feel they can talk to me about anything, any time day or night. My kids know that whether it is proof reading a paper, or finding the dumb lost dog again, I am there. They know I am the loudest and proudest whether they got an A in school, or win an award, or even finished a hard paper.
I'm not very smart, I could never share my vast knowledge of math or science with my children, but I have set an example, of living an honest life, of going to school; whether that was college, or trade school, or anything else, I finished my degree and often pushed through because I knew who was watching. I set the example to be honest in my dealings, to be customer service and sales oriented, and I have passed this onto my children as they have worked gunshow's and at the shop with me. I have instilled them with a never quit attitude, and they are fiercely armed with this knowledge, and it shows.
The two things I am proudest that I have done as a Dad is instill my boys with a respect for women under any circumstance, and to always show love and respect for their Mother and Sister, and to defend them in any case. The second is I have show by example to my daughter, what to expect and demand out of a man, which is their devotion, their respect, and their love, and to accept nothing less. I am proud to say that I know my daughter has chosen a boy that meets this criteria, and will spend her life with a real man who will some day grow to be a great Dad himself.
I never broke any records, I have never won any huge awards, but I have shown up, and that is what set's apart the sperm donors from the Dad's, we show up.
Let me finish by saying, any asshole can get a woman pregnant, you need a license to fish, to drive, you need a license to boat or hunt, but any moron can impregnate a woman and become a father (at least on paper) but it takes someone special to stick it out, to partner, to raise children, it takes a very special person to be "DAD"!!!
