Since Father’s Day is approaching, once again I sit and wonder what tools he would like. After awhile of pondering, I sit and think of who he is to me.
During my turbulent teen years I always tested my dad because, you see, we were so alike. My mother played referee between us, but it never seemed to make a difference.
My father also realized that we needed time together to sort things out. I finally realized that my dad was an amazing man and he was a really great guy to be around! We came home after the weekend with a new appreciation for each other (no small task).
It wasn’t until that I confirmed in my heart what my head already knew.
The relief and love I felt was overwhelming. I knew right then what should have been obvious all my life: that you can always go home, and your parent’s love for you is unconditional.
I don’t know how I can ever repay my parents. It can’t happen. I have confidence I can do this now since I’ve learned by their example.
It is dedicated to all the father all over the world including my Mr. D.L.Mandal,Katihar,India.
