i miss my dad so much... i never see him for more than 10years now. i seldom call them coz i will only cry and he will only cry if we heard each others voice... my mom always visit us here in manila thats why i didnt miss her that much unlike my dad.. he didnt like the city, he didnt like crowded place and too many vehicles and noise... he just want to stay at the province and look after our farm... one time i applied for a vacation, and supposed to visit my parents at the province but i wasnt able to go coz my partner in work got resigned... actually in our work, we have it partners.. coz its a 24hrs service... so in my position we have 3 of us to rotate within 24hrs including our rest day.. but the other one resigned so i need to report to work immediately... my ticket was refunded coz i cant change the sched since im not sure when can i go there... i just felt so bad coz my mother told me that my father was waiting for me outside the whole day and didnt even bother to eat breakfast and lunch coz if they ask him to take some he will only says that he will going to wait for me first... i was really crying the whole night and really feel bad.. i love my dad, but since i transferred and to manila to finished my school i never had a change to meet him again... coz when after graduation in college i got job already.. hope someday i can go there to see them...

Daddy's are such important important parts of our life's.Dad's are always inspiring than anyone else,we mostly say I wanna become a person like my dad,usually boys say that rather than girls.It's a terrible thing to not have your dad close by,a feeling of insecurity rather. when my dad was in the military, he came once in a while to meet me and mum and our aunts and uncles,only after a span of 3-4 months in a year,I always missed his presence,he still used to ask for all our needs and fulfilled what he could.Dad's are true image of love,sacrifice and determination in our life's.

So true and you are right. Dads are an imporant part of a childs life as well as moms are. I know these two young women that live near me lived with their grandma forever and their mom came to take them back. Their hearts are breaking because there grandma has been there for them and their mom has not been. I pray for their little hearts. They have parents but they are not there for them. To me this is so sad. Take a chance and see your dad.

Dads are always special,mums too as they are more a kind of lovable image.I have been hearing the thing from so long that the boys love their mum more and girls love their dad,its a sort of logical approach from early times.There are so many things that one hears of the depriving parents love its so hard to get one convinced for the alternative,dad and mum are the best of all.

Hi there homeshoppers. I want to say this to you if at all possible please take time with your dad now while you have the time too. My dad passed awaay in 2006 and I miss him very much. I know that we never know how much we love someone until they are gone. I know life happens but family is so imporatnt and I must let people know it is never too late but than one day it will be. Take care and I hope this helps you.
