My father is the kind of quiet and rather keep what he feels towards any topics about the family.Well sometimes he shared it to my mother then my mother will tell it to us.But i always want to know what he feels special if its about our life.I love him and my mom so what they think is always important to me. Happy fathers day to all the fathers out there! ( June 15,2010,Philippines )

hi there, what kind of father do i have...hmmm i can say that i have a one of a kind father. he's a fighter and a survivor. he may not be the best father in the world but he's the best for me and my brother. well maybe if i have to answer this question some 10-15 years ago my answer would have been different. i would say that he's the worst. huh! you know way back then, i don't have a good relation to him, i kinda hate him because of what he's doing. he has been with a bad company having some bad habits and all, my mom & my father are always fighting, he's not working well, not even a good provider and kinda lazy...haha see all the bad descriptions and i think that he's hopeless already and will not change anymore, i even envy my cousins and other people around me who have good relation to their father and whom i think have a great dad...how bad of me. and there also comes a time that i don't even talk to him. well anyway he's also quiet & serious type that time. and im kinda scared of him. haha but despite all those of course i'm still her daughter, he's still my father and i love him. i do pray to God to help our family to get through in that kind of situation... and i am glad that my prayers was heard. coz when i get married or even before getting married, my father started to change, in his own will. little by little i saw the changes in him, he starts talking to me openly, ask forgiveness for all the things he have done in the past, his relation to my mom becomes better actually they are not fighting anymore, except for petty things which is just natural for couples. he stops smoking, stops seeing his 'bad friends' and he's working well now. even if he just have small salary still i saw his effort to be a good provider for the family, maybe not for me anymore since i am already married, but i know he's doing his best to be able to provide for my mom & for my brother and his eagerness to let my brother finish his studies. aw, this will be a very long post if i have to say everything about him and what we have been through and it may leave me crying...looking back to yesterday... all i can say now is that i am proud of my father that he was able to change for the better and was able to go back to the right path. and its never too late for him to be a father to me & my brother. he's one and only and he's just so great. words are not enough to describe him and what i feel for him. i just so love him the same way i love my mom.

My father was a hard worker. My father was a strict disciplinarian. My father was a philanthropist. Although a bit grumpy, my dad loved his kids. My father was a very caring person to all his family. I am proud to have a dad like my dad.

My dad is my hero. He has been rode hard and put away wet. He has busted his rear end all my life to make sure his family is taken care of. A very loving but hard man. He is the smartest man I know and then some. He happens to be my most favorite "friend" that I have ever known. To this day, my hero, my father and my friend is still here with me, Thank God, and I still love him more every day for every lesson that I have learned from him and had to learn myself.

My father is a loving father. He sends a lot of love to the family and we send him love in return. My father has one pet peeve. That pet peeve is lying. From when I was younger, he always told my sister and I to never lie to him. That's the worst thing to do. Even if we did something wrong, he tells us not to lie to him and tell him the truth. I think it's a good idea to be honest with your parents.

I hear that about lying. He never lied to us and expects us to not lie to him.

My father is a loving, hard working man, even in his eighty's. He was by my mothers side every minute for several months when she got so bad. He has been alone now for over a year. It was very hard for him.
