Its too bad all people in the world didnt have dads like we do(or did)
I cant speak for everybody here but....Some dads just dont seem the same as 40 or 50 years ago..I see this in myself...I dont do much with my son, its been like that ever since I met him(at 6 years old)He was a "Video Kid" and only grew if he was fertilized by a video game or a TV...I was ALWAYS an outside person..Its too bad...WE didnt want anything to do with each others world. I dont really know why this was the way it happened, but it did.Sometimes I think it was because In reality I should have been his GRAMPA, And I remember my grampas didnt do much with us kids.
I DO see things where I should be more involved with Brad by looking back at how my dad was with me.
The moment I realized how much my dad loved me is still vivid in my memories.
I got in trouble with the law when I was 18..(First of many times).
Well, first i called my sister to get me out..All she says is "What'd you do a stupid thing like that for?"...Then mom shows up and says,"Why in the hell did you do a stupid thing like that?".....Then dad show up, And i was reallt freakin' about what he was gonna say,...And he comes up to me and says,"Are you OK?"..I said "Sure dad, I'm ok,"....Dad says,"Good,...Thats all that matters then, son."
Dad and I were best friends after that...I still got into a lot of scrapes with the law after that, but even tho I was the one doing wrong, I never had a doubt if my dad loved me. He's had my back all my life, and now that he's older I always have his...And I realize I owe him everything.
Ok,..better go to the next thread before I start bawling!!
