Recently, I gave a talk on motherhood for an English presentation. In this I highlighted various reasons why a mother was the most important figure in your life, but what I failed to mention was that fathers too, are equally important.
This father’s day, I would like to just say thank you. In previous years I must admit that my gifts have been far from satisfactory (often they were vouchers for free labour), but I hope to do better this year.
My father is the one who runs out at short notice to get fast food when we want it, he’s the one who each and every holiday makes sure we have access to unlimited movies, he’s the one who fixes all electric devices when they break down and my father is the one who ensures I have music to listen to on the way to school.
If I haven’t said thank you for all of the above before this, I’ll say it now, and thank you for everything else you’ve done for me over the years.
