Both loved me unconditionally, and both strived to allow me to reach my full potential. They both possess unique attributes that shaped who I am today. I looked up to my dad for his undeniable work ethic. He showed me what it meant to do whatever it took to provide a happy life for his family. His late nights and early mornings at his work showed me his love in ways that he could not even imagine.
His hard-working demeanor and positive attitude make for a great worker and it shows throughout his internship. If Chris lacked devotion to his son and job, he would not feel love from his son nor possess a job to support him. Ultimately, Chris’ loyalties keep him alive and motivated for his future and his son’s future as
The money from the sales gave my mother a sizeable nest egg to retire on, which would have made my father very happy. My father was always there for me, whether I wanted him to be or not. Most of the time, as an adolescent trying to claim my independence, I saw this as a problem. Looking back I now realize it was a problem every child needs, having a loving father. As hard as I tried to fight it, my dad instilled in me the good values and work ethic to be an honest and responsible member of society.
Despite his busy life, my dad has always acted selfless when it comes to his family. No matter what he really needed or wanted, my dad always put our needs and wants before his own. Just like Targan’s father, my dad has always strove to have “enough”. I can not recall a single Christmas that I did not receive what I wanted, or when my dad got something extravagant. Whenever a chore needs done around the house, my dad is usually the first person to volunteer to help.
Lastly, my two younger brothers are something I cherish very closely. I strive to be a phenomenal role model for them and be someone they can be proudly call their brother. They brighten my day even when there is no sun to be shining outside and always know how to make me happy. Overall, family is an important value in my life and believe that family can teach each other, serve one another, and share life’s joys
With this style he captured my trust and respect; never letting me down. Furthermore, it was my mother's permissive parenting that undeniably contributed towards my love and gratitude for her. There were also instances where my parents influenced my life both positively and negatively. Nevertheless, I am forever grateful for having my parents in my life, for they contributed (and continue to contribute) towards my success as a growing adult. In all possible words that I may choose to describe the relationship with my father, the one word that accurately expresses the emotion that has accrued throughout the years would be "admirable."
For me, this quote speaks volumes to every aspect of my life. Achieving and doing what I love and not considering it work remains desired by attaining knowledge of that particular field. Investing my blood, sweat and tears into something I dream of accomplishing I consider it to be my passion. My adolescent years I observed my dad's work ethic, and I occasionally felt he had no additional time for our family. However, I knew he remained pleased for it stood his vision and purpose for not only himself but for us too.
Because working has always been a theme in my family, and while the time and effort to fulfill this function is hard work physically and mentally, working is expected of us and looked at as a blessing, for many people struggle to get jobs, rather than a stressful task. I particularly love my job working for my local recreation where I am a supervisor In planning and teaching programs for kids ages 2-13, as well as a daycare provider and in that sense, I am very fortunate, and blessed, to have the economic support from myself and my family. Another function that is very important to my family, but at times has been hard to fulfill would be love and affection. Mental depression, addictions and illnesses run in my family and at times affection and love was absent. I always knew that my parents
We are all gathered here to celebrate our parents but I am here to highlight the importance of our fathers and the fatherly figures in their accomplishments in raising us, their strength in protecting us, and their success in shaping us to where we are today. The role fathers play in the development in their kids is unparalleled to any
A very special man in my life once had told me, “ Enjoy your years of life while you can, just do it in a healthy way.” What he meant by this statement was go ahead and have fun but do it in a way that I am pleasing God and my parents. Don’t go out and party with the wrong crowd and make a pity fool out of myself. He has always told me that our society sets us young people up for failure in life. My father has always been a great mentor in my life, I have always been able to look up to him and know that I can follow in his footsteps. My dad was able to have fun throughout his childhood and young adult years, yet he had always done it in the right way.
