Fathers Day

My father passed away around 11 years ago. He was my best friend and I still miss him.

I say he was my friend and I mean that, but I didn't talk with him about everything. While I knew he would truly be there for me, if I needed him, I never talked that much about any weaknesses I had with him.

I believe it's the respect thing. For men, respect is very important. You can dislike a man and he can forgive that. Disrespect him and it might be forever. So, with my dad, I could talk about most things, but I didn't ever want him to lose respect for me. So, while we talked about a million things, I rarely ever said anything to him that I thought might make him lose any respect for me.

I respected my father on most issues. I always did. There were a few things that bothered me, but not many. It's weird because when I think about the respect I had for my father, I also think of my mother. She is still alive and well. I respect them both about the same, but the edge would have to go to my mother. Nothing big, just that she is someone that has some extra inter strengths that few people ever even know about.

My father lived a fairly simply life, his way. The Frank Sinatra song "My Way" could of been written about him. He pretty much lived his life his way. Even at work, to a degree. I believe that is the reason the edge in respect goes to my mom. She adapted to things much quicker than he did. He would change and I did watch him do that, but slowly. Almost like he was hoping no one would notice.

He guided me when I was growing up in a lot of ways, but mainly by example. He truly lived what he preached. I can remember when I was a teenager and I was thinking about doing something that might be wrong. I would think to myself, what would mom and dad think if they found out? It kept me out of trouble a number of times.

I was one of the lucky ones. I had two parents that loved me and cared about me. I didn't know I was blessed until much later in life and discovered the lives some kids had to live. I had a good childhood. I might even say a great one.

I miss my father to this day. I love him.

I think your father lived his life the way he knew how. Above all else, you have to respect a man who does everything his way.

Men like that rarely have the need to adapt because they live life on their terms.

I am like your father.

Change was hard for him, but he was able to adapt DIV, which is the key to life.

My father taught me valuable lessons, such as honoring your word, honesty and to stand up for what you believe is right.

He also helped teach me love, in his way.

A lovely tribute, Trillogy.

Respect is so hard to find in some these days - Respect works both ways. I do believe that you had a wonderful father and he a wonderful son.

I do love him and yes, he was wonderful in many, many ways.

You are right about respect working both ways. He did give me respect, which was important to me.

Ron! What a pleasant surprise for you to stop by.

I'm not a very good writer, I just tend to spit out what I feel and sometimes it doesn't make a lot of sense. My dad was a good man, but like everyone, had his faults. I don't want to make out like he was a superman, he wasn't. But, he was a hero to me.

I do hope that you will be posting soon, Trill.

This might help. May I ask, as a good friend - "Will you cum for me?"

What a wonderful tribute to your father. He must have been a very special man, and though I don't know you, and this is the first of your blogs that I have read, he raised a good son.

He was certainly special to me. And, I am lucky, my mother continues to be a guiding light for me.
