If there is one thing i could see about my dad is that he is not perfect.. he is the military kind who is afraid to show emotions and always see fault in what i do.. but if there is one thing he taught me that i am glad about is discipline and being good at something - darts lol. Last night made me realize that as i was able to hit it off quite well with my husband's friends and he was even proud of how good i am at it lol.. i never really knew my husband talks about me (surprise surprise!) and somehow i am thankful for my dad for teaching me and while thinking of this makes me grateful for my parents. and i do miss them a lot right now, they are away most of the time and yes today i miss them more. i might give them a call...

That's nice to hear jazel that you are grateful that you are your father's daughter. Just like you, i also feel the same way. And just like your father, mine was also a strict father.In fact, he whips us with his belt when we have done something wrong, so we try to avoid being in trouble. And i am proud he brought us up that way. All of us, are married now and have maintained our being good daughters to him. I visit them every now and then.

everyone is likely to follow their fathers. It is natural that you will glad that you are the daughter of your father. Many fathers do not show their affection and emotion directly to their daughters to save that for big times. You should be lucky to know that you are the daughter of your father as he has such a wonderful influence on your life.

Yes somehow i believe he did influence me a lot, thinking back i always look up to him, just that lately we were barged with issues - him having another family which we just found out.. it made a cloud as to what kind of a father he is and i honestly was dissappointed but somehow i was able to forgive

Isn't it great when we realize how much our parents contribute to who and what we are in life? I hope you get to visit with them today.

My father thought me how to play chess board game, it is his hobby when Im growing old I always saw him playing with his friends. Until one day he ask me that he will teach me he wants me to be one of the good player but Im not good as him. He also teach me how to dance and that is the best talent I ever had because it become a full time career. Im a dance teacher now and my bread and butter at all times.

I don't have much to say regarding my father. I was raised by my grandparents thu I am a grandpa's pet (being the first grandkid as well) Memories of my grandpa are so sweet that gives me a happy childhood. What I love the best is the treehouse he built for me
